As a newborn and baby photographer, I have to take the safety of my little clients very seriously. It might surprise you to know that the newborn photography industry is completely unregulated. Photographers like me, who take safety seriously, have to take it upon ourselves to be trained and educated on how to ensure the beautiful images we create, are done safely.
For example, when you see a beautiful image like this...
You may be forgiven for thinking that the baby here was unsupported but actually I created this image using 2 different images, and a spotter. Here are some of the ‘before’ images used to create the final portrait.
Being a newborn and baby photographer requires a unique set of skills and there is a worldwide organisation that exists to support photographers like me, who want to have access to safety training and resources that we can use to provide clients like you with a better service. I have spent many hours with Bella (my stunt doll) perfecting posing and training my spotter to keep the baby safe.
I’m delighted to have joined BANPAS (Baby & Newborn Photography Association) and you will be able to find me on their directory of photographers. They also have a fabulous facebook page for pregnant and new parents here
I’d be delighted to chat to you about how I can create beautiful artwork of your newborn and very happy to chat to you about how I do that safely.
