WHAT KIND OF PICTURE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
If you want to capture a variety of moments with a baby or younger children, you can take you camera and make photographs of your child with different relatives or in different rooms; playing with toys as props or even just eating. However, if you want your child to have a variety of expressions in different poses, you can go for portrait photography. Portrait style of photography is often considered to be the right choice; because so much can be controlled and 'created' when you want to take a snap of your baby’s special moment and hang it in the nursery, the hallway or maybe even the main living area. This would be the best option to avoid seeing a 'spaghetti-all-over-the-face- scene' in a prominent area. Cute but will the guests want to stare at it for 3 hours? Just sayin'.
There are also tons of fabulous choices on how to reproduce that picture that can really take it up a notch.
If you are going to take your candid photos don't forget to move around and get at your child's level. The world looks so different from two feet off of the ground!
