Very interesting! So do you do all this as studio work, or do you have a mobile studio that travels to the location of the family?

I'm glad the photo is edited and the position looks worse than it is, but still... what's appropriate for a newborn is to be on their back (or turned somewhat toward the side) - hard to tell exactly in the photo where the infant is positioned. A newborn's hands are still mostly fisted til they are able to keep the fingers open more.

The website doesn't seem to have any particular expertise in infant development so I don't think it's the best resource for appropriate positons for infants. I looked online a bit and found one photographer who has an article/blog about how to position an infant in a sling - which is completely unsafe and inappropriate.

You've got to be careful with this sort of thing because all it would take is for the sleeping baby to wake up and move before an adult can reach/catch them and you have a potentially harmful situation. I've worked with babies who were brain damaged from a fall etc., it's not something to play around with for the sake of a more creative photo.

Again that is your Opinion, Newborn Safety is the number 1 priority , I'm sure you don't know most of the ways that those are created.... the website isnt a source i was using to show her the information on how to pose them she asked how it was created,, and that website shows, how i dont recommend even doing newborn photos if you dont have any knowledge with babies or photography and safety on how to deal with them,YES Some Photographers DO Unsafe Poses and Pictures For Sake or a more Creative photo, but this is not the Case for me.

From my job as an Early Intervention Specialist I know the concern with newborns is that the head and neck are weak enough that the positioning is important for keeping the airway open etc. The best position would be the parent holding the infant, or the baby placed in equipment designed for newborns like an infant seat/their crib, etc. A beanbag and blanket would be better when the baby's a bit older, past the newborn stage.

LOL!! Maybe you should tell that to all the newborn photographers what "you" think they are doing wrong, i think what your saying is kinda crazy.. you said that a beanbag and Blanket would be better when the baby is a bit older? that doesn't make any sense at all! . and that the baby should be in the parents arms or crib basically 24/7? I Appreciate your Feedback,and your point your 'trying" to make but to me it doesn't matter... i know what i am doing, and as a photographer as well.. have a good day..
