Safety

You should always do your research when choosing a newborn photographer. To help ensure your and your baby’s safety, I have all of the following:

  • A current Working With Children Check
  • Whooping cough vaccination (received during my pregnancy in July 2020)
  • Fully immunised, as are all members of my family
  • Annual flu shot (received April 2020)
  • I am fully insured
  • Have completed my Infant CPR and First Aid Certificate (May 2019)
  • Recognised photographer with the Academy of Newborn Photographers after completing my Certificate in Newborn Photography

Your baby’s safety is my number one priority and I do everything I can to ensure their safety and comfort at all times during my sessions. This is more important to me than any photograph.

In addition to the above, I value being mentored by talented and responsible Australian and international newborn and related industry photographers so that I can learn from the best and keep developing my skills and understanding of safe posing, techniques and all things newborn photography. I have been mentored by Amy Tong of Amy Tong Photography in Sydney and attended a workshop in February 2019 with Naomi Hewitt from the USA to learn all things newborn. I am always completing online study on safety processes, techniques and working to improve my skills and keep myself informed.
