Newborn photography is one of the hottest topics in the world of photography. This is a trend that continues to grow as well among new moms and photographers. There are many well-known newborn and infant photographers with their work being published, and newer photographers desiring to achieve the same shots, poses, etc; sometimes at the request of their clients and sometimes simply for the challenge.
However, with this comes to the stories of endangered or even harmed babies. You may also gather more details about the company from ("Book Session") section on their website.

Here are a few things to look for or inquire about during your search:
1. Do the babies in the photographer's portfolio look comfortable? Babies that have just come from the womb are accustomed to being curled and folded. However, some babies, even at just a few days old, won't tolerate this kind of posing.
An experienced and gentle photographer will know when to give up, while others will push an infant's boundaries to achieve the desired pose.
2. Does the photographer show a variety of babies on their website or are the photos in their newborn portfolio split between a few of the same babies?
If the photographer has only included a few different newborns, this should be an indication to you of their lack of experience. Ask yourself if you're okay with your infant being the baby that the photographer learns with.
