How To Pick A Good Photographer | Virginia Baby Photographer

What makes a good photographer?

I’m sure if you are doing your research on who to take your baby, child, or family’s photographs you have been inundated with lots of pretty logos and flashy websites. I think it’s VERY important to really think through and research who you are choosing before you do so. Your child is NOT going to be a newborn, or a smiley 6 month old for long so make sure you make the right choice when selecting your photographer because you don’t get a redo!

My friend Amy, from Amy Ro Photography covered this topic VERY well so please go read her blog post.

There are a LOT of photographers out there to choose from, make sure you choose a GOOD one because your memories are priceless.

Ask Me Anything! | Virginia Newborn Photographer

So in addition to doing FAQ posts, I now have a new little widget on my sidebar where you can ask me any question. It links directly to my formspring page and I answer questions daily and have answered quite a few already. As usual, please keep the questions technical, I am not open to answering any hard core business questions publicly but usually try to if you email me privately.

They don’t have to be about photography either, so if you are dying to know what shampoo or toothpaste I use ask away! I’m a mostly-open book.:-)

And a post is not a post without a photo so here’s a beautiful little bunny from this week.

Doesn’t that photo make you long for spring? After a postponed session today because of the monsoon we’re having, I’m ready for warm weather, flowers, green grass, and long sunny days!
