We have all seen them, ooohed to them and said "oh my gosh, so cute."
I am a huge fan of Pinterest but not a huge fan of the unsafe amateur posing and "cute" outfits that will date in no time.
If your paying a professional to take portraits of your child and family I suggest you use their talents wisely.
Professional photographers have studied for hundreds of hours, attended workshops, photographed many newborns, have insurance and are up to date with best practice.
Not professional newborn photography: Posing in glass containers! Holding your baby in the air to take a photo (that should be done on a beanbag totally safe)
Awkward poses that baby is uncomfortable in
Hanging baby on a branch in flimsy material
Posing with huge, hard or uncomfortable props
Posing in dress up costumes and huge headbands
Simple poses where your newborn is the focus of the portrait
Organic textures (twigs, wood, wool, cotton, dainty flowers)
Soft, comfortable and warm props and outfits
Neutral soft, light colours (cream, white, dusty pink, soft blues, browns, grey, lavender)
Dads in neutral clothing with no bold patterns, logos or pictures Brothers in jeans and no shirts Sisters wrapped in fabric or neutral, cream, white or blush dresses
Mum's in neutral, cream, white or blush tops or wrapped in fabric
Safety first (poses, spotters, temperature)
