This. If you can't get them to sleep for your session, and they are too young to smile for you, this simple set up is the money shot. Place in front of a window with indirect light to add those sparkly catchlights. Winning.
This sweet girl is the 3rd baby in a way-too-gorgeous family! Ive been lucky enough to photograph each of these dolls at my favorite age, 6 months old. S was so easy going and full of smiles, and as you can see, the camera adores her. But, not as much as I did. I wanted to take her home.
