Baby safety and comfort are the most important factors during your newborn's shoot. I have been specially trained in safe newborn posing, so that your little ones will never be exposed to unsafe practice.
No pose is guaranteed, as I do not force any baby into a pose they aren't happy with; the baby is to be relaxed and comfortable at all times.
More difficult poses are produced using composites, this is using more than one image to create the final shot. The parent will be supporting the baby and then I use Photoshop to merge the shots and remove their hands.
For example, the pose where the baby has his or her head in his hands is a popular request but a young baby is unable to hold its own head up, so mum or dad takes the weight at all times.
The potato sack pose, where baby is wrapped and appears to be upright, is another which requires them to be supported and then clever use of Photoshop to remove parent hands.
Sometimes when the baby lies with his or her head on arms, they need a little help to prop the head up.
