10 Reasons to Use a Custom Portrait Photographer For Your Newborn Session ~ {Orange County Newborn Photographer}

July 27, 2010

Before I had my own children I didn’t realize how quickly time passes and how fleeting the newborn stage really was. Preserving those memories of their little tiny toes and fingers are so important. They don’t stay that tiny for long and it’s such a miraculous time.  I unfortunately, didn’t even realize photographers that specialized in newborns existed when my oldest child was born. Huh? I was giddy and astounded when I was introduced to a local talented newborn photographer’s work while pregnant with my son. I immediately booked a session even though he was not due for another 6 months! So, I have beautiful images of him while he was only 8 days old! I think I look at those photos almost everyday! I will treasure these images forever and feel very thankful that I invested into a session!

Some people ask me why should I pay the prices of a custom newborn photographer when I can go to Sears and get my newborn photographs done for a lot less? Well, yes you could very well go to Sears and UM…you will get a lot less. You may pay less but your experience and images will be lacking in so many areas. Let me help you see what I am talking about.

10 Reasons to Use a Custom Portrait Photographer For Your Newborn Session

1 ) With an experienced newborn photographer you will receive very unique, artful images that will bring you a lifetime of wonderful memories.

2 ) Your photographer goes at your babies pace anticipating break times for feeding and your session is completely devoted to you and your little one.

3 ) Beautiful heirloom albums, custom brag books, canvases and storyboards can be created with your images.

4 ) There is no exposing your newborn to germs from a public place.

5 ) Each image will be individually processed to perfection.

6 ) Each image will be a piece of art and your babies unique self will show through. You won’t be given cookie cutter images to select from.

7 ) Props such as blankets and hats have all been washed and cleaned after every session.

8 ) There is not a number of noisy children waiting impatiently in line causing distraction.

9 ) Your session can be done in the comfort of your own home.

10 ) You will receive individual attention throughout your entire experience.

There really is a difference in your experience and your final outcome. Think of your session as an investment because it is something that will last you a lifetime and be treasured by future generations.

And because I wouldn’t be a photographer if I didn’t share some images that I have captured….here are a few!

Thanks for reading my post!

Love is in the air …E-Session ~ {Orange County Photographer}

July 10, 2010

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting this fun and adorable couple who just got engaged in Maui a couple of  weeks ago!  We did this session at the San Clemente Pier. I was really really hoping the weather was going to cooperate and give us some sun but it wasn’t going to happen. I think the sparks between the two of them lit enough light up for this session though! Awe to be so young and in love! Congratulations S & P!
