About safety

You are here

 

When choosing a newborn photographer, one of the most important things parents should look at is not the portfolio or a price list of the photographer in their region, but their training in Newborn Safety Posing. Your baby will be trusted in another person's hands, it's your top priority to make sure these hands are fully trained and safe for your tiny miracle. I have undergone full training in Newborn Safety, covering handling, posing and caring for newborns during photo sessions in a safely manner. I am also a member of Baby and Newborn Photography Association (BANPAS) and Guild of Photographers

We are a proud member of If you're looking through a photographer's portfolio you should look for specific signs of babies' distress, such as baby's feet and legs purple from where the blood supply is being restricted (due to the pose or low studio temperature). Look for photos where babies clearly have been left to balance on their delicate hands in an unsafe pose, potentially damaging their wrists and back.

As well as portraits of babies who can clearly look distressed, unhappy and not at all relaxed, uncomfortable in the pose or from the bright studio lights (or both). What you should know about our work is, we always place safety and baby's health and positive experience first. These are baby's first days of life, comfortable and safe posing is our top priority. All our photographs where babies are supporting their heads on their little hands are always an effect of a composite work, where more than one picture is merged in post processing to achieve the result.

Babies are being supported at all times while being photographed and never left to balance their heads on their hands unsupported. Bucket and prop portraits are always assisted by a spotter (either a studio assistant or a parent). Any poses requiring the baby to put extra weight on their back and/or limbs are always supported to make sure no distress is being caused
