Baby Photography Mistake #1

Baby Photography Mistake #1:⁠
Taking their safety for granted.⁠

A couple years ago I went to a newborn photography conference where the instructor was teaching how to pose a baby in a bucket.⁠

She had a completely asleep model in front of her and was explaining the need for an assistant whose hands could be within reach of the baby at all times in case the baby startled. ⁠

The model suddenly flailed his arms back and looked like he was going to throw his entire body out of the bucket. The instructor calmly put her hand on his head, holding him securely in place and smiled.⁠

It was like she had planned it.⁠

The perfect timing and demonstration of why you should never assume a baby was safe in a pose– even for just a split second while your push the shutter. Even if they look deeply and completely asleep.⁠

Baby Photography mistake #1 is their safety. People assume it’s safe to {fill in the blank}.⁠

When photographing your baby at home, the safest place is at ground level, on their back, looking up. And you should always use an assistant- dad, grandma, aunt, any adult will do- who has hands within reach at all times.⁠

After waiting 6 years after marriage to have children, I decided to invest in professional photos with Glean and Co. when I got pregnant. I always knew I wanted a special newborn photoshoot, but instantly all her life moments became so important to me when I knew that we were becoming a family. I’ll treasure the album and photos forever and am so grateful to Paige and Glean & Co. for the memories. 

"Make time for the pictures.
Invest in the book. You will never regret seeing your memories stitched together"


"We just absolutely love these photos.

I will never be able to put into words how much we appreciate your talent and capturing our little moment!

Thank you!"


"I am blown away by how amazing these photos are.

I am so excited to see the final album and have already changed my phone and computer screens to these new pictures."
