Babies: So little, so cute, so... incredibly hard to photograph. Your bundle of joy might be adorable, but capturing that on camera can be challenging.
Ditch the iPhone
Smartphones might be convenient and great for sharing your little one's growth on Facebook, but their slow shutter speed means they're not going to produce high-quality photos. If you can, get a digital SLR camera, although Drane says not to spend that money unless you're planning to learn how to use it. Both photographers recommend a 50 mm lens. But don't despair if you have a point-and-shoot.
