Safety First: How We Create the Perfect Froggy Pose in Newborn Photography

Updated: Jun 26

At A Moment Photography, the safety and comfort of your precious newborn is always our top priority. We understand how important it is for parents to feel confident that their little one is in safe hands during a photography session. One of the ways we ensure safety while capturing those adorable, intricate poses is through careful planning and post-processing techniques.

The Froggy Pose: Adorable but Complex

One of the most popular and charming poses in newborn photography is the froggy pose. This pose showcases your newborn's tiny features in a unique way, with their chin resting on their hands and their legs tucked up beneath them. While it’s undeniably cute, it’s also a complex pose that requires special attention to safety.

Safety First: How We Achieve the Froggy Pose

The froggy pose is never attempted in one shot. Instead, we combine two separate images in Photoshop to create the final look. Here’s how we do it:

  1. First Image: Supporting the Head

  • In the first shot, we position the baby with an assistant or a parent supporting the baby's head. This ensures that the baby's head is stable and safe throughout the process.

  1. Second Image: Supporting the Wrists

  • In the second shot, the assistant or parent shifts their support to the baby’s wrists, still ensuring that the baby is completely secure and comfortable.

Post-Processing: Combining Images in Photoshop

Once we have the two images, our post-processing magic begins. Using advanced Photoshop techniques, we carefully combine the two shots to remove the hands of the assistant or parent, creating the illusion that the baby is holding the pose unaided. This method not only guarantees the baby's safety but also produces a flawless, professional image.

Sample Images: The Froggy Pose in Action

Here are some examples of how the froggy pose looks before and after post-processing:
