A baby shoot needs to be real
After all these months, here I am again on my blog.
It was a very intense and important period, because I was able to improve my skills in children photography.
Every baby shoot start with meeting a new family.
In the beginning it’s all about you and these gorgeous people, knowing each other, playing with the babies, chatting with the parents and then, pretending you’re not there, starting shooting.
What I like the most is the natural situation that is created: mom and dad acting usual with their chidren, cradling their baby, playing with their grown up, talking with them, kissing, feeding and holding them. I love capturing also fun times, especially between siblings, like the one in the pic on the left, you cannot resist laughing.
Another special moment in a baby shoot is when a baby starts to crawl.
Babies typically begin to do it between 6 and 10 months, and it’s so funny to wait to see what will be their next move while they inspecting the entire house.
What I just adore is to put myself at the same baby level on the ground, crawling with them, turning around, smiling, playing with the babies and their toys.
This cute little boy in the photo is Elias, and I had one of the greatest time photographing him, he is pure joy.
Capture the magic in a baby shoot
Each child is acting differently than another one and what is more beautiful than this? You have never the same baby shoot, the same pose, the same feeling looking at a picture.
Let me show you some examples.
This picture portrays a mom-son moment.
The baby was just returned from a walk with his dad and his mother was setting with him on the sofa, looking at him, before feeding.
This only took a few seconds but it was crucial.
You can look at this photo and you’ll be able to feel the love between a parents and a his little boy, eye to eye.
You look at his smile and you’ll be surprise to realize that it makes you smile as well.
This baby shoot captures a father and his son.
During the session these two were, alone, in the end of the couch and for some minutes they only be able to look at each other.
How could you ever resist a love like this?
I’m pretty sure that you all will stare at their eyes, at the look of the baby, at his little hands, then first at the dad’s and later at the boy’s smile and that’s it, here it is, you totally can see the love.
That’s exaclty the feeling I want to capture in a baby shoot with my images, I want to have powerful and real memories.
No pretence, just love.
