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 left suspended in the air on the swing but actually I created this image using 2 different images.
Here are 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’m delighted to be a member of BANPAS (Baby & Newborn Photography Association). To find out more about BANPAS, you can view their website http://www.banpas.co.uk/.
It explains why your should book a professional photographer and how to know if your photographer is safe.
You will be able to find me on their directory of photographers here:
They also have a fabulous Facebook page for pregnant and new parents here https://www.facebook.com/BANPASforparents
For more information, I’d be delighted to chat to you about how I can create a beautiful gallery of images of your newborn and how I do that safely.
