How can you find a professional newborn photographer that is safety conscious? There are many photographers who take many different kinds of pictures including newborn photos. I do take family pictures, senior portraits, and of course wedding pictures as well, but I am dedicating myself quite a bit to newborn photography and capturing the little big love as a professional newborn photographer. Newborn photography seems very easy to some people, since babies are sleeping most of the time, but it actually needs quite a bit of knowledge about babies and techniques for posing and editing to capture them safely. Newborn baby pictures are usually taken when they are 5 days old to 14 days old. Some moms have a C-section and it is too hard for them to move, in this case then we ask them to contact us when they can come over. It could be 2 months later, so we may not capture them with the same kind of posing we do with 5-14 day old babies, but different stages have different things to capture! 5-14 days may sound too early for some parents, and we do take pictures of older babies too, but if you would like to have the picture like this below (calm sleepy baby ), we recommend you to come in during that time.
