Photographer Sandi Ford has taken photos of newborn babies for several years. She’s learned how to read children to know when a child is about to smile, and she’s always in the right place to catch sweet moments.

‘I read somewhere that there are two types of people: those who see smiles of newborns, and those who don’t. I think that capturing a baby’s random smile is a huge stroke of luck,’ Sandi said.
