Awesomely Cute Baby Photo Ideas
A Review of the Book
from Your Baby in Pictures
But all is not lost!
The book, Your Baby in Pictures - The New Parents Guide to Photographing Your Baby's First Year by Me Ra Koh has helped me fake it and look like I actually have talent!
Written by a professional photographer and mom, the book divides your baby's first year into four quarters of time. Within each time period, there are suggested scenarios to photograph which are intended to showcase each developmental stage.
Following the suggested baby photo ideas will not, however, produce cookie-cutter type portraits. On the contrary, the author makes excellent suggestions to show off your baby's individuality, all while taking out the "shot in the dark" part of the equation.
Each scenario has suggestions as to:
My absolute favorite part of the book? The author gives great tips on how to make Mom look good when being photographed with baby! Anyone who has had a baby knows that most of the changes to her body that have occurred while producing that adorable newborn are not something she wants immortalized in print! The result is not only a cute baby photo, but a cute mommy photo.
Want to see a cute baby photo that I actually took? Here is a recent picture of my youngest at 3 months old. Don't you just want to kiss those chubby cheeks?
The newborn baby pictures (and beyond) resulting from following the tips from this book will be keepsakes of a lifetime.
But don't just take my word on it, read the reviews at Amazon.com.
