Over the weekend, I got the chance take our SLR home and shoot some super cute shots of my niece. Since she’s only six weeks old, both H. and I were convinced it would be easy to take some nice baby photos to give to my cousin and his partner by the end of the night. But it wasn’t until we started shooting that we realised we were so wrong… babies are really hard to shoot!
My niece wriggled and squirmed then cheekily posed a little for a shot before moving around again. Much to his glee, H. managed to take some much better shots than I did – I thought I’d share a couple of my favourites from his photos below:
After two hours of trying and with much of it being blurred, we decided to throw in the towel. I’ve got a new found respect for ‘Pixie’ baby photographers in shopping centres – they make taking baby pictures look much easier than it seems!
