Oh my word! When this baby girl was born, she fractured her clavicle which is the bone nearest to her shoulder. Mom said she would be fine for the newborn photos though, just not to bring her left arm above her head.
This made me so very cautious throughout the session. And during her bucket pose, you can see she only has her right hand supporting her head (which is fine, she balanced well). She didn't want me to bring her hand up with the right one.
I love that there is a little story just for her in those photos. I am also glad I was able to work with this newborn because of her fractured clavicle. I now have experience so just in case it happens again, I am aware and knowledgeable!
