Christmas Baby

Have you ever tried to try something you have not done before? Have you tried to expand your horizons? I have used backgrounds and lighting before, but I yet to take a class in lighting or portraits. Here is my first foray into baby pictures.

That’s my foot!
What I have learned

You have to have a lot of patience to do a baby picture shoot. The parent needs to as well. Be prepared to stop for feeding, pacifier breaks, and diaper changes. Occupy older siblings to handle props. It will help them stave off boredom and make them feel a part of the experience. Its better if you allocate a large time block. This one involved two hours.

It was good to try something new. It helps to expand your horizons. Have you tried something different lately?

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukah! Happy New Year!
