At Belle Momenti, safety is our top priority throughout all of our sessions - whether we are photographing maternity, newborns or families.
We ensure that pregnant clients feel comfortable at all times, never placing them in any awkward positions or poses that could harm them or their baby. Newborn safety is of the utmost importance. Having undertaken specialised training in this area and a member of BANPAS (www.banpas.co.uk; an association that promotes safe working practices in newborn and baby photography), we will ensure that your baby's comfort and needs are taken care of whilst we work safely to capture beautiful keepsake images of your little arrival.
We have also invested in the world's first newborn training aid - StandInBaby™ (www.standinbaby.com) - which has been specially designed for newborn photographers. We are now using this with both our pregnancy and newborn clients, to show them how their baby will be placed for certain poses and to demonstrate how their baby will be supported for composite images (when one image is made from a number of images) to educate but also reassure first-time or anxious parents. StandinBaby (SIB) feels just like a newborn baby, weighing 7lbs and with body parts engineered to behave exactly like that of a new baby. We think that this will also be invaluable for parents-to-be to just hold for a while to get used to the feeling - and the need to support baby's head. Most people holding SIB for the first time forget it is a training aid, and absentmindedly start to rock/sway or pat SIB's little bottom!
We can already see the benefits of SIB and think you will too - contact us for further details.
