Creating beautiful and safe memories of your little one
As a newborn photographer and a baby safety ambassador in the industry, I am committed to ensuring the well-being of every little one I photograph. Safety is always my top priority, and I want to share some important tips with parents to help them keep their newborns safe during photo sessions.
First and foremost, it is essential to choose a trained and experienced photographer in newborn photography. Look for someone who is certified by a reputable organization, such as Babies & Photographers Association
When it comes to the photo shoot itself, there are several key safety considerations to keep in mind. For example, the studio's temperature should be kept warm and comfortable for the baby, who will be naked or partially clothed during the session. The lighting should also be soft and diffuse to avoid harsh shadows or glare on the baby's delicate skin.
Another important aspect of newborn safety is the handling and positioning of the baby. The photographer should use proper techniques and support to ensure that the baby is comfortable and secure at all times. This may involve using props such as wraps, blankets, bean bags, and gentle and supportive touches. The photographer should also be attentive to the baby's cues and needs and be prepared to stop the session if the baby becomes fussy or distressed.
In conclusion, newborn photography can be an excellent way to capture the beauty and innocence of your little one. By choosing a qualified and experienced photographer and following some safety guidelines, you can ensure that your photo session is both beautiful and safe for your newborn. As a baby safety ambassador, I am dedicated to promoting the well-being of all newborns, and I encourage you to ask questions and raise any concerns you may have with your photographer. Together, we can create memories you and your family will cherish forever.
