Photography Tips From Erin Manning

Just before Bubbles was born my husband and I went to select and purchase a new point-and-shoot digital camera.  With a new little one on the way we knew there would be hundreds of memories, poses, and expressions we would want to capture in the first months of her life.  Having a new camera gave us slightly better quality prints over what we could take with our phones but it didn’t make us great photographers.

Photography Tips for Babies

I think most of the pictures we took back then were pretty cute (see above) but in the course of two years we’ve definitely learned a lot.  Some was through trial and error, some was thanks to Pinterest (there are lots of suggestions for taking photos of your baby on there).  Much of it was just through lots (lots) of practice.

Photographer Erin Manning and SanDisk would like to help you capture those beautiful baby pictures a bit more easily.  So Erin is sharing three tips with you that will help make your pictures even more perfect!  She also suggests you use a SanDisk Ultra SDHC card so you never have to miss out on a single image.

Do you have any photography tips when it comes to babies?

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for SanDisk. I received a product sample to thank me for participating

  1. I don’t think you can have too many pictures. I have disks and disks full of them. I found I can’t remember to write down milestones but I can photograph them.

  2. The one tip i would give any parent that is getting ready to take photos of a baby is patience! You might never get the one shot one you want because a baby isn’t cooperating (and they don’t have to)

    The best decision you can make is to stop taking photos and try again later. I also have many photos that have become my favorites from “rapid” shooting. (point..click…shoot…repeat over and over)

    Now if someone can tell me how to get my 4 year-old to let me take his picture again…..sigh

  3. I love taking pics of babies or kids at an off angle, so they are not center. It somehow makes the pic look a little more artistic and draws my eye to them even more. And your little one is such a cutie!!!! Oh my so so adorbs!

  4. What an adorable baby, thanks so much for the tips!

  5. What a doll! She is just so cute. Patience and dedication. Also, camera with the action setting so when you click it will take a dozen pictures, you are bound to get the right one in the mix :)

  6. Some people like to hand it all over to a professional but if you’ve got a good camera, sometimes the pics you can take in your own backyard are priceless! Cute pics, by the way!

  7. I take hundreds of photos of my boys because I always hope to get one good one out of the bunch. I really need to work on my photography. I leave family portraits up to the professionals but they are not always around for those special moments. I can’t wait to get a better camera as all I have right now is my phone but it works in a pinch.

  8. Ha! My tip would be to buy a camera that takes lots of pics per minute then get rid of the ones you aren’t in love with. LOL.
