My Neighbors' Kids

     I'm always up for a photographic challenge so when my neighbors asked me to take pix of their babies, I gladly agreed. I'm not into the studio lighting thing, but in the yard on a beautiful day sounded like a sure winner.

     From both shoots, I learned I don't want to be a baby photographer. All of the attention, a stranger with a giant "thing" pointed at them, plus short attention spans make it a bit difficult. They don't understand posing and once they've reached the end of their attention spans, they have a tendency to cry and just want to go home. The bunny and duckling helped some, but the weren't the magic we were hoping for.

     Here are some of my favorite shots from those two days.  Click on a thumbnail to enlarge the photo. Use your browser's "Back" button to return to this page.
