When selecting a newborn photographer, prioritize their experience in newborn portrait photography and their expertise in safely posing newborns. Ensure that the photographer is up-to-date on newborn safety guidelines. Request to see their portfolio to gauge their proficiency in this specialized field. Finding an experienced photographer is vital for your baby’s safety and capturing beautiful portraits.
- Inquire About Safety Procedures
Ask the photographer about their safety procedures, including how they handle unexpected issues like fussy newborns or discomfort during the session. At Belly to Baby Studios, we maintain a clean studio environment, wash props after each use, and have a dedicated assistant to aid with baby safety throughout the session. Your baby’s safety is our top priority.

Prioritize your baby’s safety by ensuring that the photographer and their assistant are up-to-date on necessary vaccinations to protect against infections. The studio should be clean and free of bacteria. Newborns are sensitive to temperature, so confirm that the studio will maintain a warm environment. You can also bring your baby’s blanket or wrap to enhance their comfort.

Newborns should never be left unattended during a photography session. It’s essential to have an assistant present to guarantee the safety of both your baby and the photographer. At Belly to Baby Studios, we always have an assistant on set to ensure your baby’s relaxation and safety throughout the session.
- Awareness of Potential Hazards

Ensure that the photographer is aware of these risks and takes necessary precautions to protect your baby. Don’t hesitate to voice your concerns and ask questions. Your comfort and safety are paramount during this precious time.
