I’m sure you’ve seen this pose before and maybe wondered how is that possible? First, it’s call the froggy pose. It’s one of the most difficult poses to achieve but also the most rewarding once you get it.
This pose, like a lot of newborn photos, is a composite. That means you take two pictures and blend them in photoshop. This pose can only be done when baby is in a deep sleep. Usually that’s right after mom feeds the baby and they are in their milk coma.
Here is the final image:
A parent helps by holding the baby while I take my shots. One shot gets the top of the photo, and the second shot gets the bottom part. Safety is always first!
