MY 6 MONTH OLD - PICTURES OF FAMILY

For all of you parents out there, I want you to know that my toughest job is photographing my own children!  It is very hard for me to be mommy & photographer all in one.  My first priority is mommy, and so when a nose starts to run, I have to put my camera down to wipe it, when a tear starts to fall, I have to put my camera down to catch it, and when a little one needs tickling to bring on the smiles, I have to put my camera down and get my fingers movin....and then when the smile flashes....woops...where is my camera?  On the ground!  So, be easy on yourselves....It is difficult, even for us professionals, to photograph our own children!  Can I get an AMEN fellow photogs!
Below are a few shots of my 6 month old. Trust me, we worked hard for these!

THE LITTLE THINGS - HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH THEM! - PHOTOGRAPH

I really love to photograph the little things! Little fingers, chubby feet!  They are so precious and they change so fast! Sometimes photographing babies hands and feet can be a challange!  Especially the older they get, babies can move pretty quick, causing your photo to blur!  Having a good amount of light is key...but a trick is to give the child someting to hold onto...to slow them down!  Choose something that is pretty in and of itself!  Below is Violet!  We gave her a pretty pinecone to explore.  The pinecone slowed this clapping, happy 9 month old enough for me to photograph her tiny fingers and toes!  Enjoy the little things!
