Have a look at their type of work as well. Some of the photographers continue to use simple poses and work more on the natural use of lights. On the other hand, some may tend to use dark colors in a candid image. The main point that you need to look at is how will the images look in due course of time. So, the simple it is better and have a look at the website of the photographer and see to it, whether their style goes on to match with yours or not. Do lay special emphasis on the quality of images as well.

In the case of certain photographers, there might be some rules or they may not allow to do so.
Many photographers go on to allow additional services like styling with photography. This would include makeup and grooming the kid. If that is the case you would need to get your little one ready and save a considerable amount of money in this regard as well.
