Baby and toddler photography tips that will ensure you get the very best from your subjects! Every new parent wants to capture those special and exciting moments as your child grows up, but taking a good photography of your baby and children can be a tricky task.

Trust me; I have been photographing newborns, babies and toddlers for the past 15 years, so to help you out, I have gathered together some tips and guidelines that will enable you to take the perfect shot of your little ones. Hopefully this will help and guide you on how to take the perfect picture of your baby.


For your baby, certain times in a daily routine are better than others. We suggest picking a time when he or she is most settled and content, which is probably straight after a feed. Try to avoid taking images before a nap as they tend to feel unsettled and get a little cranky. After a feed is generally when they will be more tolerant and can be persuaded into a photo-friendly pose and likely to show that gorgeous smile.


It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, or non-characteristic words.
