Hello, we have booked our newborn shoot (baby due in 3 weeks) and it would of originally cost £50 for the shoot then £200 with all digital images (around 50-100 apparently depending on cooperation of baby) and it also includes 3 10x8 print outs. However they are running an offer for it all for £200 so £50 off. I did find that there was lots of different prices so it's worth looking around.
That actually sounds about right in total - they've just made the session fee less and charged more for the images.
You need to think about the amount of work that goes into processing and editing the photos etc. Newborn photography is far more editing intensive than children or adults - think jaundice, milk spots etc!
Two of the best quality baby photographers in the UK are Pennycress Photography and Maria Murray (sweetbambiniblog) - have a look at their prices as a guide.
Sounds pretty standard to me (photographer myself, not newborn ATM) You might be able to find someone who will just charge £50-100 for the session, but you'll pay more for prints. You might find someone starting out who is cheaper, but be wary of the quality and the safety.
I’ve experienced hiring a photographer who specialises in newborn photography Berkshire. However, it’s been a long time since I hired that photographer so I can’t remember the exact price that I paid for the session. Anyway, in my opinion, it will be easier if you just get recommendations from people you know. This way, you can readily ask about the rate of the photographers, and you can even ask them about their overall experience when they hired these experts. Best luck on your search!
