    A friend on fb just posted that she got her baby's newborn photos back and they turned out "awful". I offered to come over and take some new ones for practice. However the baby is now almost 2 months....not an easy age to photograph. I really want to do a good job for her and have some cute posing/prop ideas. I'm going over next week so I have some time to surf pintrest for ideas but I'll take any and all you pro's have to offer!! She also has a 2 1/2 year old so I'm hoping to get a cute sibling pose or two. Spam me with your favorite ideas for not-so-newborns!!

    Tie a piece of yarn (or wrap some tape) around a finger to keep them distracted so you can snap some shots. I have not tried this myself but I hear that it can work wonders.

    Shoot midday and use window light with as small a depth of field as you can create with your equipment.
    Have fun!

    Oh traveler....that isn't very nice!! I don't have any lighting :( so it will be done by a window on a sunny day. I hope I get at least a few keepers, I'm starting to get nervous about taking photos for someone else! But hey, what can she loose? and hour of her day :lol:

    I prefer flesh colored duct tape.. it doesn't leave holes in the subject! The residue can be a pita, though! but that is the Mom's problem.. not mine! lol!
