Tip #2: Think outside the box

So first let me put this out there, I don’t really like posing (except newborns). Of course in my job it needs to be done, but for the most part it’s a simple set up and I ask them to place themselves how they feel most comfortable. That brings us to…

Tip #2: Think outside the box…

Once you find the best light for the image you’re looking to get, just get your subject in it and YOU do the moving around. Get lots of different angles and don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Sometimes an off centre image is more intriguing than a straight on one. Negative space (extra space around your subject) can greatly add to some images:)

The following is a picture of my sister Christy. If I had taken it straight on with her in the center of the frame it would probably still be a fine picture but to me it would lose its uniqueness. What do you think?

Look who’s back | Newmarket Infant Photography

I got to spend some time with little G back in November when he was just a little 6 month old. He’s grown so much, is crawling and standing up, and is just cute as a button.

Mr. G was a tad sleepy but he put up with me and the black box in front of my face for long enough to get some great images.

Here is a sneak peek from our session…

I got to photograph this little charmer recently. He was a very hungry little fella but once he was full (and empied;)) he fell asleep and we captured some great images.

Adorable Little A | Newmarket Newborn Photographer

These tiny people steal my heart each and everytime I meet them. It is truly amazing how one itty bitty person can hold within them such joy, hope, and wonder. This little cutie was full of coos and squeals, she was just adorable.

Here is a sneak peek from little A’s session…
