Every professional photographer has knowledge and good understanding of the camera, settings, lightning situation and etc. But not every photographer knows how to safely pose a new baby without making a damage to its little body.
Newborn portraiture takes a lot of patience, hours and hours of training, and have to be comfortable with any type of accidents. (I do not think you will run into problem of being pooped or peed on while photographing, lets say a wedding!) I SURE HOPE SO!
Plus, an experienced newborn photographer has a huge stash of outfits for your new baby, all sorts of wraps, hats, and hair ties in every possible color you can ever think of; this way new mom does not need to worry about planning and buying additional outfits for new addition to the family.
Infant portraiture is about capturing this beautiful moment before the child grows up.
