Shooting photos of baby Lexie

I got asked to shoot portraits of an almost 1 year old girl named Lexie. I never photographed a baby before so I thought why not, it’s not something I focus on but should be fun to try. Babies are shooting wise very different from normal portraits; they barely look into the lens, have an attention span of, well, a baby, cry when they feel like it and will smile the second after. Usually a portrait is a collaboration but babies don’t care if they look good on the photo, they just chill or cry or laugh and you have to catch the nice and funny moments. Here are some of the shots. Click on the images for larger size.
