Why you should book Brittany Schaber Photography as your Newborn Photographer

Why you should book Brittany Schaber Photography as your Newborn photographer.


Photography in general has always has always been a great passion of mine.   When it comes to newborns I just love everything about them. That “newborn-ness” is just so precious and sweet… from their teeny tiny fingers and toes, to their squishy lips and cheeks, and their ever so soft skin.  With every newborn session the little ones manage to melt my heart each and every time I get behind my camera.  Besides getting to snuggle all these adorable babies I love my job most of all because  I am able to freeze all the emotional feelings the parents have towards there new little ones in a single image.



Baby safety is a crucial factor to look at when choosing your newborn photographer. Do not be afraid to ask questions on how certain poses are achieved to make sure your new bundle is never put in harm’s way. There are several poses you see these days that are created using multiple images so that baby is safe and secure the whole time.. thanks to Photoshop, the general consumer never knows it was a composited image. I would never risk the baby’s safety for the shot a parent or myself had in mind. Rest assured I have taken classes and been trained in on how to carefully handle newborns in the safest way. Newborns have fragile little necks and we want to make sure they are carefully placed when it comes to all those cute little poses and taking them in and out of little buckets. Even when it comes to my older “littles” I always like mom or dad to be right by there side for safety. Like the old saying goes… its always better to be safe than sorry!


With each newborn session I send mom and dad a “Newborn Questionnaire” to fill out. This goes over what colors or themes you would like to see in your session. Check boxes for particular poses and group setups. The earlier you book the more customized we can get! I have a endless amount of props that you are more than welcome to look through to use during your session however if I am missing something you might like I go ahead and order it in! This is why I suggest booking a good 9 weeks or so ahead of your due date.


Who wants to wait months on end to get their photos back of their adorable little ones? No of course! Everyone who has worked with me knows I always have their full gallery done with in 2 weeks of their session.  I make sure to only schedule a certain amount of sessions so I am able to keep up with a short turn around time. This is also very beneficial if you are wanting to make birth announcements and such! Whats even better is that while you are waiting for the full gallery to be finished I post a few sneak peaks to Facebook(with your permission of course 😉 ) With these images you are more than welcome to tag yourselves and others, share to your page or even set as your profile picture!


Last, but not least, price! Price is always the forefront of every consumers mind when choosing a photographer. Just remember the old saying, “You get what you pay for”.  Going with the least expensive or whomever offers the “best deal” might not be the best decision when choosing your photographer for your newborn portraits. Remember you only have a small window to capture those first days of life so if you choose a photographer that you end up not being happy with, you cannot get those days back. It is very similar to wedding photography in that you really only get one shot at it.

When hiring a photographer for any occasion be sure to find out what your really paying for! Not sure what to look for? I wrote a blog just for that! click here >> WHAT ARE YOU REALLY PAYING FOR? But in short make sure if you are wanting to print your own images ask if the prices includes digital images with print release. The answer is YES! With all my sessions from newborn, family and weddings I always include digital images with print release. I also offer the option of ordering pro prints through me. I use a pro print lab that is calibrated to my computer so the image color and quality is guaranteed every time!

Remember it is more than the photo you are paying for, it is art and lifetime memories. When booking Keep in mind the photographer’s portfolio, experience and remember this person is going to be handling your new baby so you want to be sure they consider baby safety and know how to appropriately handle, soothe and pose your baby.

Everyone deserves classic, timeless photos captured of their new bundle. Spending a little extra time researching the photographer and photographer’s work, and possibly spending a little extra money than your friend who has a nice camera would charge you is well worth the outcome for your newborn photos.
