PHOTOS: Smiling newborn babies

These gorgeous photos are by Sandi Ford, who specialises in capturing newborns smiling.

"I have learned to recognise the little signs that a baby is about to let out a smile and I sit there ready with the camera to catch it!" she says.

"I once read that there are two types of people in this world – those that see a newborn smile as wind, and those that don't.

"I see it as a rare treat that I am lucky enough to capture."
