This week's guest blogger is Charlotte of the 'Your Perfect Newborn' website.

Charlotte kindly agreed to take part in a Q&A session for me, and you can read her responses below.  Newborn safety during photo sessions is vitally important, and Charlotte aims to help raise awareness of this important issue through her website, as well as help new parents find a newborn photographer.

Thanks for reading!

Tell us a little bit about yourself

I live in the Midlands with my husband and one year old daughter, Summer. I love long pram walks, decorating and shoe shopping, oh and I really can not bake (I’ve tried- a lot!) I spent the last 12 years in creative roles within the jewellery industry, specialising in diamonds and I love seeing couples at the happiest stages of their life! Last year I became a Mum for the first time and life completely changed, I fell in love with a beautiful, full of character little girl.

When and why did you decide to set up Your Perfect Newborn?

When I was pregnant a few friends mentioned to me about having professional photos taken in the first few weeks, as babies change so quickly and so I began researching for a photographer. I struggled to find photographers in my area and wanted a quick and easy way to see different styles without just searching through countless photographer websites.

So, last year we created a platform just for Newborn photographers. Each photographer has their own profile which they can edit & upload recent work plus they have links back to their website and social platforms (which is excellent for their SEO!). 

As a new mum who went though the experience of hiring a photographer, I can relate to queries and questions I had at the time, so we have a dedicated blog for new parents & parents-to-be allowing them to understand more about Newborn photography, covering topics on how to choose a photographer, questions to ask them and reasons why you should hire one.

I’ve always understood the need for quality photography, capturing precious moments in time to me is something incredibly special which should be treasured. After my daughters Newborn photoshoot this became even more apparent , I’d say I’m definitely a sentimental person, the photos captured take me right back to that exact moment in time of being a nervous new Mum in a bubble of adrenaline and pure admiration. 

What really stood out to me after experiencing our first Newborn photo session was how extremely important safety and experience is. Now I will admit during my pregnancy I pinned lots of Newborn images for inspiration and safety was not at the forefront of my mind when researching, then when our daughter arrived she was the most fragile precious thing in the world and throughout our photography session I put my faith in a professional. 

I want our site to help new parents understand just how important safety is, what composite photos are and questions they should be asking before booking or attending a shoot.

Can you tell us a little bit more about your site and what benefits it provides to your readers/photographers?

Your Perfect Newborn is only just over a year old, so we are at the beginning stages but we have a lot to offer both the industry and parents. 

Our site brings together a community of quality professional Newborn photographers (we have just over 100 at present) and shout about how awesome they are through our stylish, easy to use website, photography awards and across our social media platforms. We offer a platform for photographers to get their name and brand out to their ideal clients. 

For our readers, we have created an easy way to browse Newborn photographers with a range of styles whilst searching a specific location, we also have a Mum blog section for additional support like packing your hospital bag and our articles give valued tips on why it is  important to capture these precious moments and how to do so safely. 

We have lots of exciting ideas for the future and hope Your Perfect Newborn can give expertise to couples at such a happy stage in their life whilst applauding photographers.
