Hello everyone

I would like to get your help about a pose ( exemple - 3rd picture http://www.kerimeyersp​hotography.com ...ton-newborn-photographer/external link). Do you prepare baby while holding them or you lay them and the try to set them? How do you do it?

I know this shoulb a workshop question, but there is no workshops about this kind of work in Portugal, so I just have to ask ;)

Thank you all

Hello! Typically, you get them milk drunk and warm. Then you lay them down and position them. Id say the shot you are refering to was also tilted in post, not shot that way with the baby tilted upward.

Here is a good thread with lots of tips and photos! http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=912133

Thank you shane for your reply. In fact I am able to pose the baby it is just this one pose that I am confused about and would like to know exactly how to do it in order not to hurt the baby. It is the feet below the tummy that I would like to know how they do it, if you hold the baby in your arms and arrange the legs in that position and then just lay the baby already posing hor you lay the baby down and then do it there.

:)

You are not going to hurt the baby (well, as long as you do it gently!) ;) They seem breakable, but they are more hardy then they look (coming from a mama of two...soon to be three!)
Baby was most likely in a very similar position in mama's tummy not too long ago. Do your best to get baby arranged how you want her (legs tucked while holding her up) just to limit the times you are messing with her, so she is less likely to wake up and be cranky. But if need be, you can certainly do some arranging after you have her down. Just be gentle...you can always have mommy or daddy help if needed. Baby will let you know if she isn't interested. :D
The tip about getting the baby good and fed is key. A recently fed (aka milk drunk) newborn will pretty much let you get away with anything. And warm is key too (heating pad or space heater in the room....remember, she is naked and newborn's rely on mama to regulate their body temperature, so she will cool off fast). Oh, and wipes. Newborns poop frequently. :lol: Good luck!

I usually pose them in my hands and then lay them down. For this pose you'll want to put their legs crossing (like Indian style) and sit them on the bean bag, then gently fold their upper body over their legs. Never pull their legs into place.

When they are tiny newborns, their muscles have little tone to them, they are like boneless chickens when they are completely relaxed and asleep. I wouldn't worry too much about hurting them in that regard, just be gentle with your movements and use your common sense. I get them into position, wait for them to settle and then tweak the pose, settle, tweak some more, settle. Rinse and repeat. If they take a binky, you might have to use it and remove it once they are completely out of it. I prefer to not use the binky, cuz it leaves lines sometimes, but.... You can tell by the lack of wrinkles in their forehead if they are really "out" or not.
