Babies can be the most precious things in life, but you have to make the moments you have with them last. Before you know it they’re grown up, asking for the car keys and telling you not to wait up. Make sure the pictures you take of them are as good as they can be so your memories will be forever lasting. Here are some ways the baby pictures you take can be more impactful.
1. Try and take baby pictures with very plain and monochromatic backgrounds. This will put the focus of the picture entirely on the subject, the baby.
2. Take very close-up pictures. Try and get the baby’s face to fill the entire viewfinder, with as little background as possible. Baby features, such as very big eyes and small noses, grow out as the baby gets older so getting some nice close-up shots of those adorable faces will be priceless as their features change.
3. Go outside. Take pictures of your baby outside in natural light. Different lighting can have different effects on the baby’s skin, sometimes giving a soft appearance, sometimes glowing and other times the effects of shadows can be brilliant. Also, not having to use a flash indoors will eliminate any chance of red-eye.
4. Snap away…a lot. Taking photos frequently will allow you to look back and really see how your baby grew up and changed during that short span of time. Try taking a picture of the baby in the same setup on the 1st of every month for the first two years. Looking at the pictures can literally be like watching your baby grow up.
