Photo Tips: Photgraphing Babies

Hey everyone, Susan here again today. :) And I thought it would be fun to talk a little bit about photography with this post.

Since I had my son (Noah) at the beginning of June, I have been taking a LOT of baby photos. :) I love photographing babies (especially newborns!) - and whether you are pregnant and expecting a new baby, or have a little one already, these are just a few quick tips to keep in mind while snapping pics...

*Don't be afraid to move in on your baby! Fill the camera frame completely with your baby's face - Up-Close style shots like these sometimes "say" more than a full bodied shot of your sweet pea.


*Don't forget how cute baby "parts" are! Make sure to photograph all of the adorable small features - hands, feet, ears, belly button(!) - of your baby. These types of photos also make great "supporting" shots to accompany baby photos on a scrapbook layout.


*When you're just hanging out at home, and snapping endless candids (as I mostly am these days), don't be so quick to delete. While you'll probably end up with a few "good" shots...


the "bad"...


and the "funny"...


...are also fun to look back on and really help to accurately tell the story of your babe's early days.
