Try a Do-It-Yourself Photo Shoot
Candid is great, and you should keep a loaded camera on hand for those priceless moments. But, why not experiment with a photo shoot?
Be creative and think about props, costumes, and settings. (Babies look great in hats, so you may want to try some.) A shoot can be time consuming, so make sure you and your child are rested and relaxed. Taking pictures should be a special time for everyone, and if your child is having fun, so will you!
