Thank you so much for all your comments. I was in two minds as to whether to post this as my husband wasn't that keen on it. But maybe that was because the baby wee'd on his arm after I took the picture! lol!

This has become a classic new baby pose and you have done a great job with it excellent shot I especially like the way the baby has spread his toes out. If I had one suggestion it would be to crop the space to the right of the image a little so the arm and the baby really fill the frame.

Then look for a good place on the wall to hang it because everyone needs to see this its wonderful.

What a lovely pose. Such a content little fellow and in such a different position. Dad must have a very strong arm cause baby is a chubby little fellow...Really adorable and love it!....Sandy

Thank Stu, I have tried cropping it on the right, making the image more square and you are right it does look better.

This is a pose I have tried a few times over the last couple of years and when it works, I think it can look great but not all babies will lie happily like it. It was especially stressful getting my own baby to do it and my husband was an awkward model too!

lovely pose ,

Have you tried split toning rather than mono , just to retain that bit of warmth ? might be an idea.

Great portfolio leading to his birth , what super memories you have now !

Stunning! I love the contrast between the baby soft skin and your husband's slightly more mature hairy skin!!!
