Give them a chance to move around, crawl if they can, yawn etc. Babies have awesome, impeccable, sweet developments, don’t push too hard for having the ideal posture in each pic.

Beside your poses and a couple of more natural shots, the other huge “to do” in my shot rundown is close up and macro. I want to catch close-ups of the toes, little bits of hair, cute lips, and ears, and all the other little details, these are often the favorites! These shots are delightful as well as they are extraordinary going with pictures for collections and albums and make the parents delighted when they see.
