the top ten: newborn poses (in under a minute)

What we love about these Top Ten newborn poses: They can all be accomplished safely in under a minute, without any spotting, composites, or Photoshop magic; They rely on classic portraiture techniques rather than props, conveying the essence of newborns in a relaxed, naturalistic, unforced way; And they will all stand the test of time, looking just as fresh twenty years from now. We're looking at you, giant teacups and monster-size bows! We urge you to try these simple, sweet poses in your own work; we'd love to see your results.
