Everybody loves a baby...unless they are screaming in the seat next to you on a cross-country flight. And almost everyone has a baby around the house at one time or another. But beware...babies and children can be like little flowers: way too many images of them to compete with unless the image is exceptional. There is much more to getting great shots of kids than cute smiles. For starters: if you are taking photos of your own children, try to review the resulting images with a non-biased eye.

I have always thought that summer is my favorite season. I love the warmth and long days. This year, however, the emergence of spring is a long-awaited event.Our extremely cold long winter has made me feel like I live in the arctic tundra. Just over 1 week ago we had wind chills of -20 degrees and now 40's and 50's.What a change in such a short period, but a very welcome change.Signs of spring are beginning to pop up all around. The snow is almost gone, little bits of green can be seen in... continue reading
The Smiths were unable to conceive children and decided to use a surrogate father to start their family. On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr. Smith kissed his wife goodbye and said, 'Well, I'm off now. The man should be here soon.'Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer happened to ring the doorbell, hoping to make a sale. 'Good morning, Ma'am', he said, 'I've come to...''Oh, no need to explain,' Mrs. Smith cut in, embarrassed, 'I've been expecting... continue reading

It's been exactly five months since I wrote a blog ( Adventures in baby photography part 1 ) about my newly found interest in the art of photographing newborn babies. My hopes were that maybe I hadfound my niche as a photographer. However at that time, almost half a year ago, I had yet to photograph a single newborn! Through word of mouth, facebook, family and friends, I found my first little model quickly and I have photographed over a dozen babies since then.I would like to... continue reading
I have my first series of portraits scheduled tomorrow with a baby client.Obviously, the baby didn't schedule it but you know what I mean!I've not shot babies before, simply because I didn't have any available to me.This is a portrait session and not really for stock unless I have some good shots.Primarily, I'm concerned about lighting, which will be mostly natural.Does anyone have any good tips for me that will help me make the most of my session tomorrow?Any input will be gratefully... continue reading
As photographers we've all been told we need to find our "niche". I've been trying very hard to find that "niche" for quite some time now.For a while I thought it was food, then I went through what I call my "puppy phase". (I wrote a couple of articles on that, here on the Dreamstime blog) That was a certainly a fun and profitable adventure.Then three months ago, I was asked to photograph a three month old boy. I'll be honest... continue reading
I have been in the microstock business for less than a year, and every time I’m creating a new image, I still wonder if I’m having a winner, or if I’m just wasting my time with an image that will die in the flow. Over the past months I’ve had so many surprises (good ones and bad ones), that after all this time I’m still absolutely clueless.My first revelation was when for who-knows-what-reason, I decided to make some textures.One other day, I got a little bit more artistic. I felt... continue reading
