There is nothing more precious, and more difficult to take pictures of, than sweet babies. This was the first time I had ever attempted photographing an infant, and let me tell you, it was not a walk in the park! It was a poopy, squirmy, crying fiasco that felt more like a work-out after all the squats I had to do just to get the right angle.
Aside from idol objects that I’ve shot before, e.g teacups or books, babies are the most difficult model I’ve had to deal with thus far.
All of that said though, I feel blessed to have been a part of this moment for little baby Evan, and any babies that I may photograph in my future, because these are memories that both parents and eventually, the baby will cherish and look at for the rest of their lives. They might even be something that is compared against the baby’s babies one day!
True, they may be difficult, but that doesn’t take away from their cute and ultra-photographic tiny features. My absolute favourite baby shots, are the ones that capture each intricate line on their perfect skin. I would photograph babies every day if it meant I got to give parents beautiful shots like these in return. That, is a fair trade in my eyes.
Hopefully more to come soon!
