I love taking pictures of newborns, babies, and children. Not sure if it's their innocence, their wide eyed curiosity, or just the fun of being with those that share my maturity level.


And it's almost hard to take a bad picture of them (though it is possible), but there is also (almost always) room for improvement.

Which leads me to a 4 part series I came across on "Taking Photos of Baby". You'll get tips on lighting, what to focus on, when to take your pictures, and much more. The series was written with moms in mind but the tips are well worth the read for everyone.

This series was written by professional children's photographer Nicole Hill Gerulat.

So here are the links (part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4), check them out, grab your camera, and start shooting.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definately be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment.

Wonderful tips for shooting babies. I've only shot them candidly in available light, but the information is very useful. Thanks Scott.
