Baby Photography Tips
Close-ups: Even though babies are always cute, they are cuter when you take a close-up. And even one part of the face or body could look very adorable, for instance a close-up of just the eyes and nose can be very popular.
Bend Down: Your shots will improve greatly if you take them from the baby’s level. You shouldn’t snap it from your height.
Minimal Props: Extra properties can add magnificence such as a toy or a creative T-shirt, but don’t overdo it. The baby photos which you’ll like the most will only have a baby over a towel, that’s it.
Controversial Flash: Some say, don’t use flash with babies, ever. That’s because flash remove the details. But some say that shadows look terrible so flash is necessary. I agree with the first kind of photographers.
Capture the Moment: Find a moment when baby has a great expression, usually their sleep and smile works the best. You can boost the expression by converting the pictures into black & white.
Getting the Right Angle: A good photo is not just two ears, two eyes and a nose in the middle. It has expression, and another tip for adding expression is find a good angle with proper lighting. Just practice, you’ll find your way pretty soon.
Settings: Keep the shutter above 1/250 because otherwise the picture will not be sharp enough.
One of the reasons I like baby pictures is that they include images like these. Cuteness to the limit.
Sisters…. next only to mothers.
One of the good thing about baby photography is that babies are usually asleep. So you can make with the concept you want.

God’s and mother’s gift to the family. There has been lot of photoshopping done on this picture and I don’t recommend you do it in your pictures.
Babies are cute, you know why? Because their expressions are not fake! These baby pictures include natural expressions and that’s what makes this post beautiful.
