If you notice, most of these shots were taken from about eye-level, except for the first shot in the middle row which was taken from directly above.

The keys to a successful shoot are

•lots of natural light coming from the side and/or front of baby's face

• happy or sleeping baby (never try to photograph an unhappy baby, it just doesn't work!!)

• simple neutral colors

• you can use any camera, even an iPhone... but these were all taken using a DSLR with 50mm lens, with the aperture opened up to 4.0 or lower ( this gives the pretty blurred effect).

If you have a DSLR and would like to learn how to use it to take more professional looking photos, please subscribe to my email list below and I will let you know when the upcoming course is available. In the meantime, you can also peruse my blog and Pinterest boards for more tips and help.
