A few weeks ago, I was commissioned to take photographs of a baby. Shooting photos of babies is actually very challenging as they’re not exactly keen on taking directions. But as difficult as the process may be, I find the results particularly rewarding. In fact, the actual process affords me invaluable practice time as far as anticipating the perfect moment and then making sure I shoot it before it slips away. This is a skill I will certainly be honing as the year progresses and I shoot more weddings.
Getting a baby to smile/laugh is a somewhat arduous task and requires both parents as well as myself to get involved and pitch in. The family above was very gracious and their house was filled with love and laughter. It was a very enjoyable experience and while I would like to take on as many commissions of varying kinds as possible, I’ve decided to focus my time and efforts solely on weddings and possibly corporate events.
So If you came here because you’re looking for a baby photographer, first off thank you but I’d like to refer the services of a friend of mine who is very talented and a mother herself (this actually helps). Check out her growing portfolio at http://www.augustbloom.ca/
