6 Tips for Finding the Best Photographer for Your Next Maternity Photo Shoot in Miami
How can you find a reputable maternity photographer?
You can find a reputable maternity photographer by referrals.. someone who already used the photographer and has a positive recommendation. Searching the web and social medias are also outlets.
When should you begin looking for a maternity photographer?
I personally think it's best to start looking once you enter into your second trimester.
What’s the best time during your pregnancy to book a shoot?
Maternity portraits are typically taken in the 3rd trimester, between 33 and 36 weeks.. The moms are glowing and it's right before they start settling down to deliver their babies
Should the photographer specialize in newborn photography or can any photographer do these types of pictures?
Newborn photography takes time and patience because babies are unpredictable and you want to be able to wait to the right time to capture the best images. Any photographer can takes newborn images but it's best to find one that has a passion for it.
What are the Pros and Cons of studio vs. on location?
The PROS of Studio: Controlled light, You have your privacy, Free from weather. The CONS of Studio: Limited space, finding a venue. Studio photography is sometimes limited as to what's kind of images you want to capture. it's a preference of a more formal portraits with a simple backdrop and props. The PROS of Location: Beautiful landscape, natural light, a wide space. The CONS of the Location: Checking the forecast, no privacy, finding a location, Limited to the time of day. Locations are more specific especially with themes and natural lighting but the weather can play a major part in the outcome of location.
The one thing you wish moms knew the day of the shoot?
I wish all moms knew it might not be as simple as the image may look. I've had moms who came to a shot with thoughts it was going to be done in ten minutes but that's never the case.
