Default Show me your family + 6mo old baby photos

I've been asked by a close friend to do a session of her, her husband & their 6 mo old baby (oh, and their 2 dogs!). I do mostly weddings & couples, and am a little nervous about poses including such a young baby, mostly on how to have the parents hold him, creative angles...would appreciate seeing some shots you guys are especially proud of! Thanks!

Default Re: Show me your family + 6mo old baby photos

Here are a couple of examples I did last fall. I think baby was a little older than 6mths - it can make a real difference if they can sit up on their own.

Things to try
- sitting baby at the feet of the parents (only parents legs are visable in shot)
- mom or dad holding baby up looking at them
-sitting baby in pots, baskets - whatever works!


Good luck!

Those are great! Thanks for the shots & the suggestions! I tend to over-worry, then everything works out fine but I do like to prepare. Thanks again!
