Newborn Photography Safety
While posing babies is not particularly my style, I realize how popular the trend is. That being said, if you find yourself working with a photographer who seems to be confused as to how to get the poses you’re wanting, please, for the safety of your baby, step in and stop them. Newborn photography safety is your responsibility as a parent.
The internet is filled with newborn pictures. Unfortunately, many are putting babies in unnatural positions, and in the process, jeopardizing their safety. No picture is worth this! If you are going to be having newborn portraits taken, regardless of your choice of photographer, please watch this video to understand the behind-the-scene process. Babies don’t magically hold themselves up for photographers. Experienced photographers take multiple shots with hands gently holding the babies in place, and then composite them together.
With any photographer, you must assert yourself and keep the safety of your baby as your #1 priority.
