This is not necessarily a bad thing, as everyone has to start somewhere. However, many of these photographers are not operating legal businesses, nor are they paying taxes. They have not invested in specific newborn photography safety and posing education, certifications, and do not have the years of experience that skilled professionals have accumulated.

This “peeking bucket” pose has become very popular recently, but can be dangerous if not posed and photographed correctly. Newborns are not capable of supporting the full weight of their own head in this upright position, regardless of how well they are wrapped. To ensure the peeking bucket poses, as well as the popular “potato sack” pose are captured safely, a hand should be kept on baby at all times. Additionally, it is important to use a weight in the prop or bucket, to counterbalance the positioning of the baby’s weight. Supporting the baby’s head at all times is imperative with this pose. If you do not have a posing assistant, you can mom or dad to help. First, the babies are posed on top of the scarf, with one leg positioned like it is dangling. Second, the scarf is loosely tied around the babies, and the assistant holds the scarf taut. Working with two babies means working with two startle reflexes. In this image below, the assistant keeps her hands on the back of both babies’ heads at all times. Both twins have full support, so their heads are both secure and there is no risk of injury if they startle. The edge of the prop is lined with soft padding to support them, and protect their delicate skin. The images are combined together in photoshop, and the assistant is edited out.
I have been blessed and able to snuggle and document these adorable tiny humans for nearly 15 years.
We can’t wait to share the progress (and photos) with you soon!
I am delighted to be able to share some of my tips, tricks and posing with the newborn community at the event. There are special procedures needed when photographing newborn multiples (such as having a skilled set of newborn-handling hands for each baby), and proper sanitization of camera gear/props, safe posing etc.
I am also looking forward to sharing information about the importance of collaborating with other skilled newborn photographers vs. Military families move often, so being able to document and preserve this important chapter in the family history of our service members is a great honor.

Made from sturdy steel wire and coated in semi-gloss lavender paint, the stand is sized just right for our 13″ dolls and is a great prop during play, too (doll sold separately). A stand is really essential for any type of scenario play with more than one doll – it frees your hands up, lets you set up a scene, and holds one doll in place so another can interact with it. And while we focus on play more than display, it would be useful for that, too – these dolls are so pretty, they are better on a stand than folded over in a box!
Finally some furniture that really fits these dolls. Beautiful colors, got one of each and most all the furniture for the house. Great colors, great fit, cleans up easily. Took one star off just because one of the lockers requires a little wiggling to close it. Something doesn’t line up exactly right, and the door doesn’t latch unless you jiggle it a bit.
We ordered two beds – the bodacious bed and royally ritz, as well as the swanky sofa and love every one of them. Did you scroll all this way to get facts about photography prop?
