I want to thank you to those of you who checked back this week. I hope you found these tips helpful. Ready for #5!?
Tip #5: Try something different!
One of the best part of digital photography is that you can play! If you aren't happy with the result it's as easy deleting the photo from your camera or computer! So go crazy and think outside of the box. Try crazy angles, extreme close ups or different crops. A portrait doesn't have to be your baby sitting in front of you with the whole body in the frame. You may be pleasantly surprised at the results! Have fun!

I love this photo on the left because I was leaving the room and turned around to take this photo from the hallway of a nice quiet moment between a Mom and her baby. For the photo on the right, the swing was going so high, that it makes it look like I was laying on the ground!
This portrait always makes me smile. You don't need a face or full body photograph to have a portrait. This little girl was ALL girl and wouldn't take off her pink sparkle shoes or tutu so Mom put on the pants to keep her warm so we could go outside for a bit!
