Tips for Capturing All of Baby's Moments

If you are a baby blog addict (and you probably are since you are reading this post on BabyBlogAddict.com), I'm assuming you are a baby photo addict too.

Here are 10 Tips for Capturing All of Baby's Moments:

1. Take pictures frequently and a lot of them.

2. Capture feelings.

3. Get close.

4. Try different angles.

5. Use a simple background.

6. Use natural light.

7. Set up before bringing in baby.

8. Use a fast shutter speed.

9. Make sure the temperature of the room is comfortable.

10. Incorporate play.

I am definitely in compliance with #1, no doubt about it. I think #3 - Get close - is so important and often overlooked. How many times do we hand our camera off to someone to take a picture of our family, only to get more of the sky or the building behind us than our faces?

If you are ever asked to take a picture for someone, please use the zoom or if you don't know how, just take a few steps closer to the people, don't just snap without any thought.
