  2. Whoa! You did that so fast! What a cute video! Thank you for sharing this Kate! I noticed you jiggled her head a little bit. I was just watching a new mom at a baby shower the other night and she was jiggling her baby on her lap and I was thinking how that motion makes me sleepy too. I fall asleep while rocking my baby to sleep every night. Never thought to use it for this pose! Great idea!

  4. Awesome! Thank you sooo… much for sharing. We don’t do a lot of newborn shoots, but we did try that pose once. Needless to say it did not turn out, but now we know what to try next time. You are FABULOUS!

  30. some time if the baby isn’t as cooperative as this one, I will do a composite:) We will try to do a video of the studio one of these days:)

    Comment by katie — November 9, 2010 @ 5:05 am

  31. Hi,
    I made the flowers with old vintage paper. The girl who owns Trendy Tots in the riverwoods made some for Skye’s studio and so I copied them from her. She might be willing to sell some to you?!?

    Comment by katie — November 9, 2010 @ 5:08 am

  32. Your work is so amazing! Thank you so much for sharing that video! I absolutly love babies. You are deffinetly making a mark in the world and giving families such a treasured moment. Wish I found you 2 years ago.

    Comment by Katie Hatch — November 12, 2010 @ 1:42 am

  43. haha that video is hilarious i love that you rock them to sleep on their hands. I still think you must have the magic touch though because i’m pretty sure they are not nearly as cooperative for me!

    Comment by Heidi Childs — November 12, 2010 @ 7:03 am

  44. That was so fun to watch! I’m not a photographer in the least bit, so it’s really fun to see just how you do what you do. I can’t wait to see more of you working your magic.

    Comment by Julie — November 12, 2010 @ 9:05 am

  45. I had to chuckle at the video, I can’t believe that little sausage was so cooperative. You certainly do have the touch:)

    Comment by Robyn — November 12, 2010 @ 1:21 pm

  46. Thank you so much for sharing. It was great to see you in action. I always love your work – your lighting and props are amazing! I visit your blog often for inspiration!

  47. Where do you get the tiny headbands??? They are perfect for new babies!

    Comment by Nicole — November 12, 2010 @ 8:52 pm

  48. Thank you so much for posting this video. I to would love it if your did a class on baby posing. You are amazing. A quick question. What are you using underneath the newborn. Is it better to have a hard surface for the elbow to hold the weight or a soft surface? Thanks!

    Comment by Elizabeth — November 12, 2010 @ 9:53 pm

  49. That was so much fun to watch! I can’t believe she slept through that! You do have the magic touch! Such cute kids!

    Comment by Emilyn Guillermo — November 19, 2010 @ 8:57 pm

  53. Hi,

    Comment by Erin — February 10, 2011 @ 10:03 pm

  59. What kind of pillow/beanbag do you have them sitting in? I have tried this like a million times and CAN’T get it to work. Your photos are beautiful and I would LOVE to learn how to do this!


    Comment by Shannon Anderson — May 21, 2011 @ 2:09 pm

  60. Hi Shannon,

  62. I just loved your video so much, and it taught me so much. I’m not sure why you pulled it down but, I’d love to share it with a fellow photographer on how to pose newborns. Is there anyway you’d post it again?
