The best age for Newborn Photography is 10 days or younger, so it is certainly possible that the umbilical cord may still be attached. This is not a problem at all! If anything, it serves to highlight just how new the baby is, and captures such a specific moment in time. We may pose the baby in a certain way to obscure the clamp so it is not in every image. In some artwork we may be able to work our magic editing the clamp out if Mum & Dad feel strongly about it, but generally we leave them in the images.
