Why I'm a member of BANPAS
 

I am a member of the Baby and Newborn Photograph Association (BANPAS) because as a newborn and baby photographer, I have to take the safety of my little clients very seriously. 

 

It might surprise you to know that the newborn photography industry is completely unregulated. Photographers like me, who take safety seriously, have to take it upon ourselves to be trained and educated on how to ensure the beautiful images we create, are done safely.

For example, when you see a beautiful image like this:

You may be forgiven for thinking that the baby here was left unsupported but actually I created this image using 'a spotter', who in this case was baby's Nanna.

 

Here are the ‘before’ and 'after' images used to create the final portrait.

Being a newborn and baby photographer requires a unique set of skills and there is a worldwide organisation that exists to support photographers like me, who want to have access to safety training and resources that we can use to provide clients like you with a better service.
