I love being a Cleveland baby photographer for so many reasons, but one of my favorite pieces is getting to just talk to my clients! As a mother myself, I have so much advice that I can offer new or expecting mamas and they always have tid bits for me.
So, I thought this week we would cover babyproofing. This happens both before the baby is born and often after as you make new discoveries! With almost too much information on the internet, some of which can be quite intimidating to read, I wanted to make an easy-to-digest, just the facts, post for you mamas! Let’s talk about what you really need to know about babyproofing.
So, despite what you may have heard, there are some aspects to babyproofing that are much more important than others. Of course, keeping your newborn as safe as possible is the ultimate goal, but there are some things to prioritize.
However, if they do manage to get a little bump or bruise, make sure you take them to a top Cleveland pediatrician just to be safe!
Seeing as I have newborns and babies in my studio frequently, I of course had to include a small bit on how I babyproof my studio! My goal is not only to take the most adorable photos of your little one, but also to ensure their safety to the best of my ability. Most of the little one’s I photograph are too young to get around by themselves. However, I’ve definitely had a few kiddos brave the unknown territory…and scare me and their mamas.
So, I make sure that all of my outlets are covered to avoid any wandering fingers. The bathroom door is always closed just in case your little one decides they’re ready to start potty training a little ahead of schedule! I also check any sets I have in place for the shoot to ensure they’re stable. That way nobody is going to get hurt.
If you’re expecting or you already have a newborn, let me know if I missed any vital pieces! I’m sure all the mamas would love to hear from you, as would I.
Speaking of, make sure you reach out to schedule your maternity or newborn photoshoot with me in Cleveland, OH! I’m so excited to meet you!
