The "Froggy" pose | Newborn Photography | Abigail Joyce Photography - Froggy Pose

The Froggy pose or sometimes referred to as the "head in hands pose"

Abigail Joyce Photography- Chicago Newborn Photographer

This is how to photograph the "froggy" pose. For all of my future clients that want this photo, there is a little bit of team effort involved.

The photo calls for:

1 newborn

1 parent

2 photos

5 minutes of patience

& Magic

Hehe, this is such a fun pose, but to make sure everything goes smoothly, we need to be safe about it! Babies are flexible but can not sit like this on their own. Thats why at all times, my client is gently holding the newborn either on the wrists or holding them gently on the back of their head.

PS. I have been watching Gilmore Girls while editing and emailing clients back. I am at the episode where Lorelei and Luke start dating. DRAMA! I love it. Back to editing and emailing clients, I already have clients booking in August!! So exciting is that?! And now something totally random...I also decided on a caterer for the wedding and chairs for the ceremony! Hehe, random little details, but its just a little more relief off my back.. Speaking of details for the wedding, does anyone know of any stores that have really cute knee length dresses? Im hoping to find a pretty cocktail dress (non-matching but all the same dark gray/blue) for each bridesmaid. Let me know!! Also, any tips on flowers?

P.P.S. "SOOC" means "Straight Out Of Camera"
