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. And more more newborn, child, and family posing ideas be sure to check out our new book, The Design Aglow Posing Guide for Family Portrait Photography: 100 Modern Posing Ideas on pre-sale today (save 31%) before it ships out in just a few more days!
