Welcoming a new baby is exhausting and sometimes taking photos can be the furthest thing from your mind. But you know it goes so quickly and you want to document this new precious life too. Here's a quick way to get a variety of images in less than 5 minutes. I recommend using the master bed, but the crib works well too. The best way to get a variety of images is to change your shooting angle. Stand above the baby, then side on. Take a whole body shot,, then zoom in (or lean in if using a prime lens) and just photograph the face. Take the detail shots (belly button, hands, feet) then change angles again. Shoot above, then from the side. Keep it simple. Often we overthink things, but this is such an easy way to get variety and it can be done in a short amount of time. Watch for facial expressions too. Whether they're awake or asleep, newborns have a variety of cute facial expressions that you'll want to capture. These images below were taken in about 3-4 minutes. Have fun and enjoy that baby!
