I have no clue what to do. My personal preference would be to cut the torso into a wrap around plate. Then I thought, the mom can choose. Then I thought, how am I going to take pics because the torso makes this baby super stiff.
I’d let the mom choose. Maybe take a few pics without the torso and state clearly that that’s what it looks like without one?
Definitely let the mum choose and take some photos without and then if she would like the torso take some with. You can have fun taking pics with the torso on. Look on google images for newborn photography pics and it will give you so many lovely ideas.
I would let the mom decide. I would take photos with and without the torso
