Before and After | Newborn Safety on Props

November 13, 2015

I thought it might be fun to do a short ‘before and after’ post, to show how much editing can go into an image of a newborn on a prop.  Things are not always what they seem, and many of the more creative newborn images are composites of two or more photos.   I also feel responsible for showing how this is done to ensure the baby’s comfort and safety at all times.

I will never leave a baby unattended on a prop and always go that extra step to edit the parent out of the image.  In the case of this guitar pose that I have done a couple of times- a parent had a hand on the baby AT ALL TIMES.  Your newborn’s safety is my top priority and I will take no chances with a precious wee one!  The guitar was also supported from behind to keep it steady with no chance of toppling over.

The photos below will demonstrate how I photograph this image, and the stunning final edit.

It worth the extra effort in photoshop to create such stunning images!
