Beware: I may do this to your newborn:)March 12, 2009
I have been trying hard to get a really good hanging newborn shot. It just brings to mind the innocence of a stork delivering your newborn baby. I love them. Here is the original master of the pose. I have newborn twins on Monday, so I will *try*. I have no idea how Anne Geddes feels safe just letting them hang like that. I would have the babies very low to the grounds with mom’s hands right underneath to spot. She makes it look safe, though!
Here was my first try a few weeks ago. I am only posting these bc, while they are not perfect by any means, they are just so darn cute and a good example of what I want to try and achieve. I have since found a much better material for this and am sooo excited to try it out! If there are any readers out there that want to stop by one day so I can try only this pose with your newborn, please email me through my site and I would be happy to do that free of charge. I really want to perfect it:) And you know, even after 3 hours of waiting, most of my newborns only have short periods of sleep. How does she get all her babies into such a deep sleep?
