Capture All Emotions
Your baby or child isn't always happy and grinning from ear to ear. "It's great to see smiley faces, but make sure to capture photos of the child in more serious moods, like when they're occupied by a toy or book," says Korona. Capture all of your child's emotions—from silly to sad, grouchy to mischievous. You and your child will love to see those expressions later.
"I think that parents take the same types of photographs of their children too often," says Steffen. "Mix it up! Find photos you love online or in books and try to recreate them. If you are in love with how your baby's little fingers wrap around yours, capture it. Do you melt when you see your little one's big blue eyes? Zoom in and start shooting."
