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.
Light it up
"Nobody's born knowing how to work with light," Drane says. If you're having trouble telling where the light is, look for the reflective glare in your baby's eyes. Take advantage of your windows, whether they're in the master bedroom or the bathroom (Williams' favorite spot in her home). You don't want the day to be too sunny; Drane says cloudy days can produce a great soft light, and suggests taking photos about two to three hours after sunrise or two hours before sunset. Make sure to turn your baby toward the light, but not directly into it-Williams suggests a 45-degree angle.
