2. Newborns don't move around a lot so you will need to get down on their level. You can also prop them up in a bouncy chair with a simple blanket under them instead of the busy patterns that often are on the chair, be sure to strap them too. Another great way to capture their little faces while upright is to have someone hold the baby so the baby's face is just over their shoulder and photograph from behind the person holding them. Make note of times when the baby is calm and try to use this time to make photographs.
