Behind the Scenes - Safety First!
Curious about the logistics of setting up for a portrait involving kids or babies? Here are a few behind the scenes images to set your mind at ease.
To sum things up, safety always comes first!
Newborn Baby Posing (Studio Newborn Portrait)
I think sometimes it’s helpful for my clients to see photos like this, because it can be super tough to visualize how baby gets settled into a particular pose or prop. Well, we do it carefully! Yara’s mom was within reach the whole time, and I always tell parents that safety comes first. After Yara fell asleep, her mom was able to move slightly away, just out of the camera (but still within arm's reach) so I could capture the planned portrait.
Setting Up A Sibling Portrait (Studio Kid Portrait)
These two boys were so sweet, but they definitely had the wiggles. Mom helped me get them in position for this portrait during their session, and then was right nearby in case her younger child needed a reminder to stay seated. Sometimes during sessions like these, I'll let younger kids hold a toy or special treasure (it helps focus their energy!).
Mom Watching Baby (Studio Baby Portrait)
I’ve included a few pull backs from baby S's baby portrait session, so you can see how close mom is to her little one throughout the session. Depending on how well babies and toddlers can balance, I will sometimes add in cushions and extra padding just out of view as an additional safety net.
And you can also see the cute adorable mini set I have for little ones. It helps make the environment feel a little more cozy (and much less vast and scary). Plus, it functions as a containment zone if we’re photographing a mover!
So relax. Just contact the studio and let us manage the details; you deserve to enjoy your portrait experience.
