LOL well thank you but yes I am an amateur and would never even attempt to do any tricky poses that require suspension or weird positions, but to be honest, I dont even like those to begin with. Sure laying them in a cute basket or wagon is fine, but I really dont care for the whole head in hands posed it doesnt look natural to me.

Aww thank you, I love doing it, and all of those ones were just ones I did for free lol. Not that I dont mind getting paid too though hahaha, those just happened to be free sessions.

You'll want to definitely look into newborn safety and composites. And for newborns, you'll need a wide prime lens. 35mm 2 for cropped sensors and 50mm 1.4 for cropped and full frame.



Here is a composite of the head in hands pose that someone posted. I made it to show other people that doing it any other way is completely unsafe:
