Snag a newborn baby photographer early, but be sure to make the right choice!
Newborn baby photographers in Singapore are certainly not thin on the ground. However, taking your chances on any random snapper armed with a snazzy DSLR is certainly not recommended. For a start off, posing baby safely actually takes great skill and should be left firmly to the pros. What’s more, bright flash lights are an absolute no-no, so you’re going to need someone who is highly skilled in taking perfectly exposed photos in natural light; they tell me it’s no mean feat.
The time our teeny tiny babies are, indeed, teeny tiny, seems to pass by in the blink of an eye amid a whir of milk, nappies and pacing the room. These shutterbugs have earned themselves a strong reputation and promise to capture your bub’s precious first few days in this world without drama.

Photographer Kerry Cheah specialises in lifestyle photography and can visit your home, a location in Singapore that is special to you, or can even document baby’s first few hours in the maternity ward.
