    PTPA!:


    My husband and I are having our first baby, and it’s my due next month. One of our plans after I give birth is to have a photo session for our baby. We already asked some of our relatives if they can recommend anyone, but we got none at the moment. So I searched on the Internet and found this (link removed) professional. But how can I know if this photographer is truly reliable? Any tips? Thanks in advance!

    do you like their portfolio?
    do you like their prices?
    will your schedules match up?
    do they offer all the services you will require?
    are they a legitimate business that will stand behind their product?

    For newborns you also have to keep in mind safety, especially if you are wanting posed shots vs more natural/lifestyle ones. A professional will always use composites rather than dangling or posing your newborn in an unnatural way. Good luck!
