Babies are unpredictable so therefore tears and tantrums are to be expected. Don’t be afraid to keep the camera shooting rather than waiting for that perfect pose or moment because somewhere in 30 consecutive shots will be one winner.

Use continuous shooting mode on your camera to capture 2, 3, 4, or 5 photos in a couple of seconds.
