and feels its life in every limb,
what should it know of death."

Infants present a
real challenge to the photographer for a host of reasons.
You must work fast, for one thing, as a baby will tell you in a hurry when it has had
enough of you.
Stay in control of the situation or forget
it. The photographer must be a director.
Get some basic shots before you try to experiment with poses.
Work in small bursts, if necessary, giving the baby a comfort break between shots.
A baby under 3 or 4 months doesn't care
much about toys; it's people they like.
Sounds can be very appealing, especially familiar voices.
Good luck trying to change outfits.
Use simple colors and patterns, with an uncluttered background.
Make use of interesting textures, and add a small object for color and personality.
To make the shoot easier for the young folks,
standardize the setup.
You will have enough to deal with besides setting shutter speeds and apertures.
You need to focus mentally on the baby and its mood.
style of photography shown above is very simple,
but I can also shoot with a variety of backgrounds and props in color or monochrome.
I can also produce and antique look, in sepia, or a monochromatic brown.
Usually, however, simpler is better with very young babies.
After a baby is six months old or so you can do more tricks with them
because they can hold their heads up, and their back muscles are stronger.
