Tips for Taking Photos of Babies


tips for how to take photos of babies When we upgraded our camera a year ago I promised myself I would learn how to use it before we had a baby. So far I’ve learned to put it on the AV setting and push click. Now that I’ve only got 5 1/2 months to go, I’ve got to start getting more serious. I’m not planning on becoming an amateur photographer, I just don’t want my kids to grow up and say, “Why didn’t you take any photos of me?” or “Why are all the photos of me so bad?”
