Newborn Safety Policy

Newborn Safety

When choosing a photographer you want to know your baby will be as safe in their hands as in yours. That's why with 10 years experience and having posed over 250 babies you can be assured that your baby will be safe with me. You will be asked if there are any medical issues or anything I need to be aware of on arrival and I will adapt my workflow as needed to accommodate. All my lights are fixed to the walls preventing trip hazards and I am first aid trained. If you have any questions about this or anything else please feel free to give me a call or send an email, Sandra x

Spotter

I will ask one of you to be my spotter when baby is in props or to assist when baby is in the ‘head up’ pose. I will ensure both you and your baby are comfortable at all times. Where your hands feature in an image for safety they will be edited out and will not be seen in the final edited picture.

Support

Small beanbags, folded towels and stuffers will be used to support your babies head and joints. These will not be seen in the final images. Some poses can be unsuitable especially if your baby has any medical issues or tummy troubles on the day so these will be avoided.

Siblings

Siblings will be shown the safest way to hold your baby. This is usually lying on their back unless they are much older and can hold baby sitting up. You might want to practise having your siblings lying on their back with baby at home beforehand!

Health

I will be wearing a mask for the duration of our session and will ask everyone to sterilise their hands on arrival. The studio is thoroughly aired between sessions and all props and fabrics washed or sterilised. I always have a minimum of 24 hours gap in between sessions to prevent any cross-contamination and there is a covid safe poster available for you to scan with the NHS app.
