This post is dedicated to my newborn Michael, who was born yesterday on 22/11/09.

I haven't signed him on model release yet, but his sister has bunch of photos on DT.

From Ultrasound to first moments alive, through growing up, babies create endless opportunities to stock photography.

and guess what, these photos sell.

Well, here are couple of tips about this exciting topic:

1.The easiest subject is to shoot your own child- Leaving privacy issues aside.

2. always seek eyes level, if it means lying down on the ground do that.

When shooting intimate situation,like breast feeding, avoid exposed flesh, it sells better and besides breast feeding isn't about breasts it's about bonding, love and maternity.

sometime, natural events create great photos opportunities. the baby's drive to explore the world allows you to experiment with various artifacts (avoid hand grenades though...)

To sum it up, there is a huge bonus of having a new child, it can engage you in photography in the most exciting way and , if you find it appropriate, get excellent stock photos.

Congratulations on your new born. My children (3 boys) are all grown up and I regret I was not doing photography when they were little. Make the most of them, they are too soon grown up. A women having her 4th child when I had my first gave me some advice I always appreciate. 'Dont wish them to be at the next stage, just make the most of who they are and where they are at in development. ENJOY.

Photographing babies is not easy, I find, but yes, what a great subject they are. Taking beautiful shots of them brings so much joy to come. I'm so happy to work hard at improving my skills whilst taking pictures of my or my friends' kids as it is so much fun to look back on our little precious ones as they get older.
