Working diligently on my upcoming Newborn Posing Guide!!! Here’s a little sneak peek at some of the content!!!
I am very excited to bring you my first Newborn Posing Guide created to inspire and assist those who are Aspiring and Professional Newborn Photographers. With the influx in newborn photography I felt a high need to teach aspiring photographers the important on safe practices when photographing newborns. There are many techniques out there, some safe and some not. I hope this guide will help direct you down a path of safe newborn posing tips to create fabulous images.

Tips and Tricks
Safety & Confidence:
First and foremost it is absolutely critical that safety is always number one with any and every pose that is attempted with a newborn. Remember, you are photographing a human being, not a doll, not a toy… a precious newborn. I can’t stress this enough. If safety is not your number one priority, then please, do not photograph newborns.
As a parent, when your precious little one is born your sense to protect this babe is heightened tenfold. You would do anything to make sure nothing harms your baby. We plaster “Baby On Board” all over our cars and squirt people that come within a 10ft reach of our child with Purell.
As a photographer, it is crucial that we take this same heightened sense to protect in to every newborn session that we do. We need to show parents that they can trust how we will handle their sweet little one, which is where confidence comes in.
To be a successful newborn photographer you need to have confidence in your skills to soothe and comfort a newborn. If you are easily frustrated or lack in patience, newborn photography is not for you. Parents need to look to you and see you cool, calm, and collected during the ENTIRE session, no matter how long it may be taking their babe to fall asleep. You may have confidence in your camera skills, but your confidence in soothing and comforting need to be even stronger. Not only are our skills for soothing baby crucial, showing Mommy & Daddy that you are relaxed and collected is even more important.
