Photos make moments last more than a lifetime. That’s why if you have a momentous occasion or event, make sure you don’t forget your camera.

Taking photos is more delicate when you are dealing with newborn babies. You need to be more subtle since infants still don’t know how to project. Also, you need to make sure that all the props are safe and do not contain any harmful chemicals.

Read the following tips to ensure that your next photo shoot with your baby is perfect.

  • Props are Well. Before you take a photo, make sure that the stuff surrounding your baby is safe from hazardous chemicals such as lead and mercury.

Remember that you don’t need expensive props to capture the best moment. In fact, you can even use your blanket as the backdrop. You can also use a pillow as part of the scene. Just try to be creative and use safe props all the time.

  • DIY. Nothing is safer if you take pictures by yourself. Therefore, you don’t need to pay for a professional photographer to take photos of your baby. What you need is to equip yourself (maybe by reading photo guides and tutorials online). Once you learn the basic concept of photography (such as the Rule of Thirds), you can now purchase a DLSR camera. In case you cannot buy a DSLR, you can use a smartphone with an HD camera.
  • Keep Safe. Take photos with safe angles. Do not attempt to compromise the safeness of your child by experimenting complicated scene. Don’t worry, newborn babies are sweet even if they are asleep. It will not be hard for you to find the best angle.

These are only three tips that you can follow to ensure that you will take the perfect photo for your baby. Indeed, you don’t need to be a professional photographer to capture the perfect shot. If you have the heart and the passion for recording momentous scenes, it is more than enough.
