As of today Rivendell Studio is proud to be a member of the British Association of Newborn Photographers (BANP).
Not every photographer gains this status as you have to prove that you operate a professional and safe environment to work with babies sometimes as young as three days old. We had to provide proof that we have Professional Liability Insurance before we were granted this status, as well as demonstrating our portfolio was good enough.
Obviously these things are in place already as we always make sure that we are covered by insurance, something that unfortunately a lot of the cheap CD photographers do not care about, hence why they offer low prices. Babies are so precious and delicate, why chance the safety of the baby with someone who doesn't care enough to be fully prepared, trained and insured, all for the sake of making a quick buck!
We have been trained and love taking the first images of these precious bundles and now we are part of a network of fellow professionals across the country, so enjoy the latest newborn session we did of little James.
