this article today from an amazing photographer, and I was nodding my head in agreement. Sometimes I see babies put in poses that scare me just looking at the picture. It doesn't feel cute, or natural, or pleasant to me. It feels uncomfortable. There are those who love lots of props and crazy balancing or hanging acts, but please... if you have to do that, be safe!!
Thank goodness for the clients who love what I love and let me capture it all the way I see it. :)
