Many people decide to book a professional photoshoot for the first precious weeks when they bring their baby home. But how safe is it?
Seeing a picture of a baby holding his head between his hands or hanging on daddy’s arm could bring up a lot of questions. Aren’t they too young to hold up their heads? What if dad drops the baby or bangs the baby’s head?
Fear not, if you are with a professional photographer who is used to working with newborns – babies are never put at any risk. We just create wonderful illusions.
Here are two examples.
- The photo of the baby twins resting their heads between their hands was made using 4 photos: 2 per baby. Each baby was photographed twice: the first time, mum was holding the baby’s hands and chin and the second – the top of the baby’s head. Then each part of the shot was assembled on the computer and the pictures of both babies were merged in a montage to create the perfect photo.
- Isn’t it a bit scary, when the baby seems to rest on daddy’s arm high above the floor? In fact the daddy is kneeling to lift the baby just a few inches above a bean bag. Any unwanted details are carefully removed later.
