This collection really needs no introduction… so allow me to keep this short. Newborns are cute—like, unbearably cute. Newborns dressed up or placed on adorable props or captured with just the right lighting or with the perfect expression plastered across their face are, in fact, so cute you might not be able to take it.

Our goal with this collection of the 30 most heart-melting, soul-affirming, aww-inducing newborn photos on 500px is to reach “just can’t take it” levels of cute. Let us know how we did in the comments ; )
