QOTD from Amy: "I absolutely LOVE the pictures of newborns/kids/families/couples that are laying on the ground, and a shot is that is taken down on them. What is best to use to get yourself above them? A step stool, or chair?"

Morgan: I just stand over them and use my wide works well ;)

Kendra:  a very sturdy step stool. And practice before your session. This way you can see where to place them and how much "lean" is necessary on your part.

Sandra: I took an awesome one where I just stood over them and leaned into it. It just depends how much of their bodies you want in it. Mine was just more of a faces shot.
