A newborn with her tiny head propped up on her hands. A baby cradled in a catcher's mitt. An infant suspended in a knitted net. A six-month-old wearing nothing but a hat, holding out an artfully knotted strand of Christmas lights. If you have a Facebook account, chances are you've seen some examples of the ever more elaborate trends in baby photography -- or maybe even posted some yourself. Read more
