Baby Portraits – Why a Mobile Photographer Can Be More Suitable Than a Studio

Most parents will invest in a professional photographer at least once during their baby’s first year. Many people like to get their baby portraits taken while their newborn is 1-2 weeks old. Others prefer to wait until their baby is sitting up and has more expression. But, whatever you decide, with a large number of photographic studios to choose from and an increasing number 手機拍照 of mobile photographers in your geographical area, should you use a mobile photographer or a studio?

For parents who wish to capture their newborn during the first couple of weeks, a mobile photographer is a sensible option, particularly if parents are concerned about taking their newborn outside while they are so young. During this delicate time Mum and Dad will no doubt be tired and having the portrait photography completed in the comfort of your own home, at your own pace will help produce the most natural photographs. It will also be more relaxed for your baby, who may well spend much of the shoot asleep (and don’t worry about that, because great photos can be achieved while they are sleeping). The mobile photographer can also use natural lighting for the baby portraits and this can produce more natural results.

Some people choose to book their baby photography in a studio as they are concerned that they will not achieve the same results with a mobile photographer. Studio photography using a white backdrop has become very popular in the last decade and many people choose to visit a studio with this set-up. However, there are many mobile photographers who also offer this service – bringing a mobile studio to your home.

Travelling to a studio can also be an unnecessary stress. Mum and Dad will be trying to fit the visit around sleeps and feeds, hoping that their baby will be at their best during the shoot. Typically, a studio will give you an hour slot and there may be little or no flexibility on the day, with the next customer waiting for their shoot after you, if things are being delayed. Mobile photographers who come to your home will usually expect that things rarely go completely to plan. They will have factored in time for breaks and clothes changes and may well have booked the entire morning or afternoon for you. Without the time pressure you can relax.

Another advantage of being at home, is that you have all of your babies toys, clothes and accessories on hand. Toys can help the photographer engage with your baby. Well chosen clothes and accessories can make all the difference in a photo and your photographer will no doubt have opinions on what works best.
