How to Photograph Babies
Photographing a very young baby can seem like a daunting task for even the most accomplished of photographers. Most babies aren’t at their most photogenic at this age; many of them smile infrequently and when they do its usually wind! They also spend a lot of time sleeping, feeding, crying or dribbling – none of which has the makings of an amazing shoot…
Yet some of my most poignant and rewarding shoots have been with parents and newly born babies. New parents often experience emotions akin to being ‘in love’ at this time, giving the resulting images an emotional depth and character, as well as prompting tears of joy and laughter either during the shoot, or when the parents view their photos.
So how is it possible to capture this special time in a family’s life?
