Maternity, Birth, Newborn, and Family Photographers in Korea

Updated 7 September 2017

All of these photographers have experience with infants, babies, children, and/or families. Call around as photographers tend to book up quickly. If you can't find someone, you might want to consider learning how to take photos of your children yourself.

Photographers for infant loss
Amanda McCollum, Amanda Mun, and Bryan Watkins have said they would do this. I also think that if you asked other photographers, they would be willing to volunteer their time.
