Ask Design Mom — DIY Baby Photos

February 22, 2010



Ask Design Mom Question:

My question is this, I am wanting to research how to take the best baby photos DIY style and I swear there is a website out there that you can sign up for (pay a subscription to) to get tips, hints, etc. I also swear I learned about it here on Design Mom. Does this ring a bell to you? Thank you so much. Danya (like Tanya but with a D)

Design Mom Answer:
Great question, Danya! I’m not sure if it’s pregnancy brain or what, but I only have the vague-est memory of mentioning a website about DIY baby photos. I can not for the life of me remember what the site is. So I’m going to put this lovely question to my readers, and I’m sure they’ll come up with wonderful answers.

Dear Readers, do you have any favorite sources for learning how to take photos of your babies? Maybe a website or book that has taught you some terrific tips? (This doesn’t answer the question, but I love these polaroids my sister Jordan had taken during Roman’s birth.)

This is not a website and not free, but I love the book "How to Photograph Your Baby" by Nick Kelsh. I think it's geared towards beginners (which I am), but came highly recommended by my shutterbug SIL.

I agree with Anne, It is a great book. It was wonderful pictures to show you common mistakes as well as how to correct them. It is very simple to understand and you can get it from your library.
