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
