Best Newborn Photographer in Baltimore


Whether for home decoration, birth announcements, or holiday cards, newborn portraits are usually one of the first things on a new parent’s to-do list. One of the greatest joys of a newbie mom or dad is sharing photos of your brand new wrinkly dumpling of joy. Friends and family that love you are glad to see and share the pictures- especially grandparents! We hang them up, set them out, and post them online for everyone to enjoy. These first photos have to be perfect. So, how do you make sure you are hiring the right person for the job?

With so many photographers around, whether amateur or professional, you would think it would be easy to find one that “fits.” However, when looking for the right person to capture the very first photos of your beautiful new baby, you will not want to rush the decision.

Here are some of the most important things to consider while searching for the perfect newborn photographer for you and your family.

How to choose the best newborn photographer in Baltimore Maryland

There are several different styles of photography. A great way to find out what your style is could be as simple as searching through photos online or in magazines. Are you more drawn to photos where everyone is smiling at the camera? That would be a more traditional style. Do you prefer the pictures that look like they just happened to be captured- without posing? That would be a more candid style. You can gather a great idea of Lizzy’s style by glancing through the Newborn Gallery. Of course, you can contact Lizzy with any special style requests as well.



It’s always a good idea to contact the photographer and get a feel of their personality. This is especially true of anyone having photos of newborns and children taken. Someone who specializes in professional business photos may have a less flexible personality than a photographer that works with babies and children. It is important to “feel them out” before booking. Another great source for researching personality is online reviews. You can find Lizzy Metcalfe Photography reviews here and on popular sites such as Facebook and Instagram.

Artistic Trust

Do not hire anyone that you don’t completely trust to provide the type of photographs you are seeking. Although you have input into the planning of the photo session, ultimately the photographer will be working the magic. If you do not “trust” the photographer to know what is best, then keep looking until you find someone that feels right. A good way to determine if you trust the photographer is to ask yourself, “am I just okay with their style, or, am I committed to their style?”


These factors are among the most important to consider, but, there are a few more things to take into account. See part 2 of this post next week for additional considerations. Part 2 of Choosing the Best Newborn Photographer in Baltimore Maryland includes Budget, Reviews, and End Product.
