London Newborn Photography: Safety & Newborn Photography

London-newborn-photography-271

I got asked on a post recently, “Is this even safe?”

Posed newborn photography should never be attempted by someone who is not a professional. Professional Newborn Photographers are highly trained and experienced and know everything about posing a baby SAFELY. Newborns are not dolls and must not be treated as so as newborn photography is not as it appears in the final edited image. There are many tricks happening behind the scenes to create safe comfortable images for baby. An untrained person does not know these tricks and does not know how a newborn’s body works so posed images must never be attempted without proper training.

I’m an experienced newborn photographer based in London, England. I’ve been running my own full-time newborn photography business for 5 or 6 years now. Newborns are my passion and when I first started I took many training newborn photography workshops with some of the best newborn photographers from America and Australia. Since then I’ve worked very hard to be one of the best in my craft in London, England and now teach newborn photography myself!

Hiring an experienced newborn photographer is key as they know everything about handling a newborn and have extensive training. Why chance the safety of your new arrival by hiring a cheap unexperienced newborn photographer?
