5 tips to photograph your baby like a pro

 If you want to capture every delightful moment of your cherub's early days, here are our tips on how to take great shots of your bubba, ready to turn them into a cherished photo book memento.

 

Baby photos
Tip 1: Take extra photos

Photographing your baby while they're asleep can make things easier, as you won't have to deal with them wriggling around. If they wake, shoot some extras so you have a better chanceof getting the perfect focus and composition. To make this effortless,  switch your DSLR or mirrorless camera to continuous or burst mode, to automatically capture a series of photos in quick sequence. When reviewing the results though, choose only the best and delete blurred or duplicate images.

Tip 2: Call in the troops

No matter how many times and how nicely you ask, babies don’t take orders, so be comfortable with photographing them in their natural state or get some help from your partner or friends. They can soothe and distract your little one so you can focus on the photography. Throw a white sheet over your assistant, place your angel on top and tad-dah, bubba thinks they’re getting a cuddle, calm in the warmth of a familiar heartbeat and smell.

 

Tip 3: Set the scene, softly

Lighting and backdrops can make the difference between an average shot and a superb photo so start by turning the overhead light or your camera flash off to avoid making your baby squint or look like a ghost. Moderate the lighting further by grabbing a desk lamp with a yellow globe, to cast a soft light. To create a classic background, bring in neutral soft furnishings, blankets in muted tones, and pillows without distracting patterns and textures. Enhance the emotion further by choosing our lightly textured, creamy art paper when ordering your photo book.

Tip 4: Heighten emotion with black & white

We know pregnancy and the early days of motherhood can be emotional at times, heightening the whole experience. We suggest you apply the same theory to you baby photo book design. Convert colour images to black-and-white and you’ll see they take on a more poignant, professional look. Take some tummy shots before the birth too as they create great silhouettes, and while sketchy grayscale ultrasounds aren’t the best quality, they do help tell the full story when included in a book.

 

Tip 5:  Celebrate the small things

To show just how unique your little one is, zoom in and focus on their delicate features – their teeny fingernails, their dimpled chin, their chubby toes. Immortalise them in your photo book by laying them out in a grid design or as a series of photos across the page. To tell the full story, you can include their dimensions at birth and during the first year, or take their handprints, then scan them to show how … from little things, big things grow!
