Why Is Newborn Photography an Investment?

I try to be one of the most budget friendly photographers out there. However, I still get clients asking for deals every month. There are many expenses involved into a small business. Here is a list of things that might justify why newborns photographers charge that much for 5, 10 or 20 images.

  • I answer your emails and answer all your questions.

  • I photograph your baby for 3-4 hours during the session. And not only! For almost all the time I am handling and soothing your baby.
  • After the session I thoroughly clean the studio and all the items we used.
  • I edit your images. This takes more or les 10-12 hours on each session.

  • I write blogs and publish them on my website
