Safety - This cannot be emphasized enough, and it is even more important when you decide on a newborn photographer. You want to choose one that has had sufficient training on how to do the poses safely and with a good enough photoshop skill to create a composite image if the pose is not natural or safe for the baby to perform on their own. (See image above)
Another thing to consider is whether your photographer is fully immunized and whether they have any first aid or CPR training. Safety is one of the things we take very seriously here at our studio. We ensure that our immunizations are up to date and that we have up to date first aid and CPR training. Therena comes from a background in Kinesiology and having worked in a hospital environment, and as such understand how to safely move my clients and pose the newborns.
Part of my training as a newborn photographer focussed on safety and posing. I have learned how to position the baby not only comfortably, but in such a way as to prevent any harm from coming to the newborn. When necessary I have parents or an assistant hold their hands on the baby at all times. See the slow motion video below, it shows exactly why you always need a spotter with certain setups. 2 seconds into the video the baby's morrow reflex kicks in and the mom has to make sure the baby is still secure.
