Composite Newborn Image - Newborn Safety

I wanted to put up a quick post about newborn safety.  There are a lot of new photographers out there, and I always like to fully disclose my procedures when it comes to newborn safety.  When I first started doing newborn photography, I saw images like this and wondered how they did it while keeping baby safe the whole time.  I researched quickly and learned that a lot of what you see is Photoshop.  Over the years I have become an expert and making your newborn photos look beautiful while keeping those babies of yours safe!  In this shot, both mom and dad were supporting baby's head and keeping his body upright on the ball.  It took three hands, and then quite a bit of editing time to perfect the image.  Just be sure that the photographer that you are choosing is keeping baby safety in mind! 1 composite newborn image how to
