BANPAS: How important is Newborn safety?

I’ve finally Joined BANPAS (Baby & Newborn Photography Association).

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. BANPAS is a wonderful organisation, which guides photographers with various online safety learning features. A newborn and baby photographer does not require to take any training workshops what so ever, but I feel very strongly about this, and have been fully trained in Newborn safety and posing, by the wonderful Russ Jackson, which I believe is essential.

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. I’m delighted to have joined BANPAS (Baby &Newborn Photography Association) –
