Step 1: Find a baby
Step 2: Verify that what you have found is indeed a baby: Employ classic sniffing techniques.
Step 3: Be sure to flatten the baby before actually beginning the final hugging process.
Step 4: Slide paws around baby in preparation for close-up (the 'paw slide').
Step 5: Wait for a camera to appear. (If all previous steps have been performed accurately this is inevitable.) Perform the difficult and patented 'hug, smile, and lean' for best photo quality.
Love to you all!
