Here is an Albuquerque Newborn Photographer Safety Guide that you would want your baby photographer to follow.

Temperature: I will keep the room around 80 degrees but keep in mind that I watch for signs of overheating. (sweaty neckline, mottled skin, redness in the face, irritability.)

Clean Props and Space: My props and space are cleaned after each shoot.

Props: Props are properly weighted, and babies are never positioned in unsafe objects, like glass.

Spotters: I have hands on baby at all times. Be it myself, or I can ask my assistant or parents to  be near in case baby becomes unsettled.

Composites: Many of my photos my look like baby is suspended or sitting up in froggy pose, but it is actually a composite image. Safety is #1 for any client, especially my littlest ones.

Feeding: I allow baby to feed, or nurse when needed during the session. We do not try to distress baby into feeling tired.

Posing: I do not try to force baby into a pose, nor wrap too tight in order to sooth. It is important to keep baby comfortable and not strain airways or blood flow to limbs.

Sanitizer: I sanitize my hands before and after as well as throughout the session to keep baby as safe from germs as possible.

I hope these tips put you at ease to choose me as your baby’s first photographer. Feel free to make an appoint for a studio tour. I would be happy to show you around.
