We have been publishing a number of articles on newborns, basically because the images, and the children have been so beautiful.
We are also aware that the majority of images have been of white babies, and they don’t have a monopoly on beauty. If proof were needed, we have assembled a gorgeous selection of images of some of the most beautiful babies you will ever see, and each and every one is black. These images tend to have a recurring theme of soft and gentle colors combined with soft and gentle materials. These precious early days are a time of innocence, a time of hope and expectation for the future, and it is a time to be so delicate with your newborn. All of these babies look so peaceful and secure, with not a care in the world, and there is one word only to best describe all of them: adorable!
There is definitely a nod to the ‘flapper girls’ of the 1920s with the style of much of the ‘headgear’. A single flower here, a buttoned hairband there, a pretty bonnet or even a hint of Minnie Mouse ears are all so simple, yet the perfect accessory to enhance a baby’s beauty as opposed to stealing the show with some fancy feathered creation. We adore the fact twins seem so content cuddled up to each other as they probably did in the womb. We just love the images of babies ‘au naturel’ or in nothing but their birthday suit, yet there is something so touching to see a baby swaddled in a soft delicate shawl or blanket. And if we have a favourite image, it is the black and white one from Dimples and Curls Photography. We suspect a doting father is involved in this image, and doesn’t it make it so obvious and clear just how tiny and beautiful newborns are.
