I’ve been reading on various photographer forums about new photographers struggling with newborns. They literally have a massive check list of things they have learnt, observed or been told to do or have with them but are still having no luck.
The truth is, a baby can read you without saying a word. They can see right through any pretence or any fancy pants set up. A baby will seek comfort and calm from those around them. They will feel a photographers confidence and experience. I hope the babies I meet also feel that I truly love my work and am genuinely enjoying the time I spend with them and their family.
