How to Find the Perfect Maternity Photographer, Brooklyn, New York

Documenting your pregnancy—especially a first—is a beautiful way to celebrate the new addition to your family. Most maternity photographers suggest doing sessions between 30 and 34 weeks, so you’ll want to plan ahead and be ready when that time comes. The tips below will help you find the perfect match. 

4 Tips for Choosing a Maternity Photographer

1. Look for Experience

Look for professionals who can provide a portfolio, and closely inspect the photographs to ensure they line up with your expectations. An experienced family  photographer will know how to showcase your belly in the best angles, so make sure that they can provide a variety of photographs from one session. 

2. Consider Style

Do you want to be photographed at home, in a natural setting, or with your partner? Depending on the setting that you select, make sure to choose a photographer whose style matches your own.

3. Think Long-term

Look for a professional who can continuously offer high-quality services as your family grows. 

4. Get Referrals

With any business decision, get referrals from past clients or friends who have used this photographer. Ask for names of past clients to contact, read website testimonials, and if being referred by a friend, be sure to look at their images!
