Sorry but for me all those babies are in very unnatural poses - maybe natural in mommy tummy, but not after they were born. Good bits are that light, background and PP are very nice (especially 2nd and 3rd).

Great images!
Serge, newborns often assume poses that they did before they were born. Fetal positions are natural fo rthe first few months.

These are not unnatural poses IMHO (I have 3 kids)

I only don't really like the first one. I feel like maybe a different angle may have been better and perhaps it's a touch underexposed.

I have 2 boys and obviously they were newborns at some point:) My cousin just got twins and none of those babies is acting like this one from 3rd photo. Why? Because newborn won't wrap himself with a shawl or something like this, leaving one leg in weird position. That's why it looks unnatural for me - it looks like his/her leg actually grows from the chest. Leave it alone without wrapping and you will see natural pose :)

Thanks for the feedback. While I get plenty of 'natural' poses (without props), I get a number of images with props. In the last picture, the little newborn was wrapped securely but, during the session, pulled its leg out in the act of passing wind. (Note the smile!) It was a gorgeous moment!
