Brooklyn, our second newborn model during a recent mentoring session did awesome despite her hip dysplasia (looseness of the hip joint). In fact, it wasn’t an issue for newborn photography at all. The worst position for her hips is when the legs are held in extension with the hips and knees straight and the legs brought together—I can’t think of any newborn poses that calls for this position. Poses where the baby’s hips fall or spread apart to the side, with thighs supported and hips and knees bent (in a fetal position) is fine.
Eden Bao Photography is pleased to offer mentoring to maternity and newborn photographers who wish to take their craft and business to the next level.
