After many millions of photographs were taken every year the majority of them are of babies and children capturing those special photographs in the most crucial periods is paramount. Babies are often photographed practically at the moment of birth and those pictures will be immediately sent to family members and relatives (possibly all over the world) waiting to see the newborn child. Sometimes the best way to photograph babies and children is when they are not expecting the camera to be there. Catching that moment when they are at play and not paying attention can result in some natural looking photographs. So be sure to keep that camera close by.
