Newborn Safety in Photography: Durham Region Newborn Photographer


Your little one is finally here and you can't help but feel overwhelmed with a flood of emotions. A light bulb goes off and you realize that you are responsible for this new life. Yes, you! And now what?  Holding them in the palm of your hands is scary enough, your newborn photography session shouldn't be!  As a Professional Photographer newborn safety is without a doubt our 1st priority! New to the industry or not, it should be yours as well.

Newborn safety is all over the internet these days. I've come across more photographers than I care to count who are just starting out with some pretty nerve wracking images.  Gives me chills and is so frustrating at the same time.  Money should NEVER come before safety!  As you can tell I am very adamant about this topic.   Newborn reflexes so unpredictable and change in an instant!  Split seconds leave you with no time to react.

That said, a newborn session with a Professional Photographer,  one whom you have researched, are familiar with, have been referred to should be in the forefront of your mind. Go ahead and ask questions, get to know them and their style.  After all this beautiful session is yours as well!

Here are a few images from a typical recent newborn session. Mom or Dad are involved every step of the way.
