Capturing a “picture-perfect moment” on camera isn’t as easy as it sounds —especially when it comes to newborns. Behind every posed photo of a new baby is a surplus of outtakes featuring everything from crying fits to siblings making faces at each other. These imperfect moments, which we rounded up from Inspired By Colour‘s Instagram, show the true realities of welcoming a baby home.
