Newborn photography is certainly a booming market. Here are 5 must see online courses to take your newborn photography to the next level.

Baby Safety and Posing for Newborn Photographers – Kelly Brown

Newborn Safety

Parents hire newborn photographers to document every detail of their babies at that brief instant at the start of their lives when they are tiny, bright and new to the world. Newborn photographers can feel a lot of pressure to fulfill parents’ wishes. In the rush to capture the perfect shot, it’s easy to forget that the subject of these photos are incredibly fragile little beings. Safety should always come first.
