I enjoy taking pictures of children, I always have. I am finally trying to learn the skills I need to take the photos I imagine in my head and it's so heard to learn all this on your own. This is the first mother/baby photography I took a few months ago. I was all set up...lighting, backround and props. It was a gift for the mother who is a friend. I should have emphasized to her to make sure her hair was styled and that the baby was well fed. I still got some great shots but it was more difficult than I anticipated.
Thanks to wonderful blogs like "The Savvy Photographer" thesavvyphotographer.blogspot.com I am learning so much to improve my photography. It has been hard to be on my own but with help like this, I can already see so much improvement. I can't wait to post the newborn shoot of my first grandchild so everyone else can see my improvement!
