The classic newborn pose known as the 'taco'.

Ever looked at gorgeous baby photos and wondered how the impossibly cute images were captured?

Perhaps you've tried to photograph your own baby at home but failed to get the perfect shot.

The result is two adorable video clips that make you want to jump inside the screen and cuddle the squishy bubs being photographed.
