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.
