Album Quality KZN Baby Shoots
One does not have to be a proud KZN parent or devoted grandparent to appreciate the typical characteristics and attributes of babies, and yet everyone knows how notoriously difficult it can be to shoot great pictures of them.
You simply have to shoot those cute baby fat rolls and dimples too, and you’ll never manage this if the little one is dressed for winter and wrapped up warmly, but this is where the KZN climate lends a helping hand.
Unless the parents move to other less temperate areas, most little ones born and growing up next to the warm currents of the Indian Ocean don’t wear winter woollies, disguising those gorgeous dimples which disappear all too soon.
Taking great pictures of babies and small children is a speciality and an art form which also requires huge amounts of skill and patience. Little ones have a comparatively short span of attention and thus a range of emotions, expressions and moods dart and play over faces in an instant.
A great baby photographer must be able to anticipate this, in order to be ready to click at precisely the right moment, lest something so precious be gone forever, unrecorded. One such professional photographic artist is Eloise of Eloise Photography, who loves working with people and families, and tiny tots in particular.
Although based in Pretoria, she does a lot of her fine work in KZN’s Durban/Ballito Bay area too, and she travels throughout South Africa on request, as and when her services are required for family, anniversary, wedding, engagement and baby shoots.
To begin with, it’s important that the little one is put at ease, relaxed and comfortable with the person behind the lens. Remember that a shy, introverted child may even perceive a camera as a scary, unfamiliar object. A happy, relaxed child ensures that the photographer is able to concentrate on all the finer points of capturing a truly great series of pictures.
Never be dissuaded from taking your own pictures, but if you want album quality baby shoots in KZN and elsewhere, do consider getting an experienced professional photographer on board; you won’t be sorry and you’ll have a wonderful record of your little treasure’s earliest memorable moments.
