How much should I invest in Newborn Portraits? | Northern VA Newborn Photographer
We work hard to be the best newborn photographer from Broadlands, VA to our Sterling, VA backyard and across Northern Virginia! Given our lengthy experience as a professional photographer, our friends often ask how much they should pay for photography. It is an excellent question with an answer that is both simple and complicated.
If you want to spend less, then you may or may not get what you want. (Prepare yourself to be disappointed, just in case!) If you’re paying a bit more, then you should expect better quality portraits. The best photographers are often the ones with the most experience and, as a result, charge more. Just as with other professionals, you usually get what you pay for – whether you hire a family or a newborn photographer in Northern VA.
With any professional photographer, you are paying for their skills, their training, their equipment and technology, and, lastly, you are paying for experience. When you hire Ever After, you are getting all of that in addition to our full commitment to you and your portraits. We are always happy to discuss our pricing because we believe in full transparency.

Earlier this year we posted a good article from the Angie’s List blog. It’s worth including the link once again because it provided good tips on how to select a photographer and the role pricing can play. In part the article states: “Expertise is the main factor that dictates the price a professional photographer charges. With more experience, a professional photographer typically charges more.”
On the subject of experience, it is important to point out that everyone has to start somewhere. We were novices at one point. There are two skill sets with professional photography: technical knowledge and practical knowledge. Technical means you know everything (or almost everything) on the technical aspects of photography including equipment. The practical knowledge involves experience in handling clients before, during, and after a portrait session. That only comes with practice and time.
Today, we have those years of experience, technical expertise, and practical knowledge. So to answer the initial question of “How much should you invest in your family portraits?”, it depends largely on your budget and your expectations. You should invest what you can to get what you want.
We are happy to discuss your budget and work within your budget. Please contact us if you’d like to work with the best newborn photographer in the Broadlands, VA and Northern Virginia area. We understand (and appreciate) that our clients are making an investment in telling their stories through our photography.
