Q: There are so many photographers out there. Which one will portray my child best?
B It’s all in the research, really. Do keep in mind that initially parents need not spend any money on headshots for their children. A good candid shot of your child will be sufficient for an initial interview; however, if you want to go with a photographer, here are some pointers and some photographer recommendations:
Find out if the photographer has worked with children.
Look at his or her book before making the decision to hire.
Make sure the work environment is compatible with what you want. For instance, does the photographer work in the studio or in natural light?
Get prices. You don’t need to spend a lot of money. About $300 for a sitting is reasonable, especially since children grow quickly and these shots must be re-done again and again.
