Kissy, Kissy little faces

Auntie love!
As soon as I saw this picture I knew we had to try and recreate it with the Little.

Little just turned 6 months so I thought this might be a good time to try to recreate this photo, or at least practice. I've quickly learned that it is NOT easy to photograph babies. Not only do they move and wiggle a lot, they don't always smile on cue. Nor do they like to wait for the "photographer" to wait for just the right moment. Not really in the mood to try and do this on the floor like the original photo, we thought we would try just holding her up. It took a few tries but this was the best from our first attempt. It was getting close to Little's bed time so she was getting a bit cranky, but I love how it turned out regardless and I think we'll definitely try this again.


  1. I love this photo too! It's definitely hard to photograph kids. I think they're even harder than pets. Some cameras have a kids and pets setting, and if you're lucky a Continuous Shoot mode. I highly recommend using the continuous shoot mode to capture those golden moments when she cracks a smile for half a second. Be ready to delete a bunch of photos after each shoot though!

  2. I use the Pets and Kids setting on the point and shoot which helps a little. I need to remember to bring my big camera and use the continuous setting, don't know why I never thought of that before, thanks!
