About the Author

Nick Kelsh’s photographs have been featured on the covers of several books in the Day in the Life series and in numerous magazines. He collaborated with Anna Quindlen to create the bestselling books Naked Babies and Siblings, and is the author of five books for STC. He lives in Philadephia.

More About the Author

NICK KELSH is the author/photographer and brains behind www.howtophotographyourbaby.com.

He grew up in Fargo, North Dakota as the second of five babies of Bud and Joyce Kelsh. Nick learned photography on the Leica his dad brought home from World War II and knew he was going to be a professional photographer when he was fifteen.

First Nick wanted to be a war photographer. Then he wanted to be a fashion photographer. Then he wanted to be a photo illustrator, whatever that is. He finally attended the University of Missouri School of Journalism and worked as a photojournalist for several newspapers around the country finishing with The Philadelphia Inquirer. Now he's one of the country's leading experts on baby photography. This makes no sense.

Nick is the author/photographer of nine books including Naked Babies with Anna Quindlen, How to Photograph Your Baby, How to Photograph Your Life, and The Sense of Wonder by Rachel Carson. He has appeared on Oprah! and The Today Show multiple times. His photographs have appeared on several of the covers of the prestigious Day in the Life series and in dozens of major magazines.

He is currently a partner in the Philadelphia-based graphic design firm Kelsh Wilson Design.

Nick's wife, Anne, is the second of five babies of George and Linda Morgan of Walton, New York. He has three sons, Chaz, Alexander, and Teddy -- the incredible, beautiful, smiling face on the How to Photograph Your Baby DVD disc.

After getting my fancy Canon Rebel and taking a "simple" photography class I was overwhelmed...to say the least. All I wanted with my nice camera was some cute pic's of my 3 young kids. I tried to understand more about photography but the more I've read the more I realized how little I know. This book cuts to the chase and lets you know how to take BEAUTIFUL pic's without having the talent and equipment of the professionals. I'm already going a little crazy and my kids are sick of seeing my camera. Way too much fun!

I love this book. I originally purchased one for myself several years ago (the first edition). When the revised edition was released, I bought another copy. Most of the information is the same, except the revised edition deals with digital photos rather than film. Nick Kelsh does a fabulous job of showing you how to take awesome photos of your baby. He shows examples of the typical photos most people take and then shows you how to "get closer with your camera and your heart." I have since purchased about 10 of these books because they make great baby shower gifts. I also include a nice photo frame along with the book. I have had several wonderful, heartfelt compliments when I have given this book to new parents/parents-to-be. Some have told me it was the "coolest" gift they received. Obviously, I highly recommend this fantastic book.

I got this book for my brother-in-law because they are expecting their first child. He's an enthusiastic amateur photographer so I figured this would be appropriate.

It's very important to note that this is one of the only instructional photography books on child photography that is not for the professional photographer working with studio equipment and/or expensive cameras.

The author does a good job of using plain English to accomplish great photographs of your children and the examples and tutorials are okay. You can accomplish most of the techniques in the book with practice so it's probably worth looking into if you're unfamiliar with cameras.

It's not the perfect book, but it's not bad for what it is and it mostly accomplishes the task at hand; showing young parents how to photograph their children.

(assuming this is more or less the same book as the original), For the last 10 years, this has been my standard baby shower gift, a must for all new parents. My siblings and friends who have read it and follow the simple instructions, brag to all their friends about 'no need to hire a professional.' The simple pointers enable anyone to take great pictures.
And I'm a professional photographer for a living.
(BTW, I like this book better than "How to Photograph your Family" by the same author. Tho that book is good too, if it's not a baby on the way, something about this one is better).

This photography guide helps to improve your every day picture taking with simple steps and easy tips that anyone can understand. This is not a technical book, but rather a presentation of a new way to look through the view finder. Topics covered include use of natural light, getting closer, being aware of background, framing, and taking lots of shots to get that one special one. I highly recommend this book as a starting point for anyone who wants to understand the basics of what makes a good photo and improve their photos.

Book is incredibly informative and is a great format for non-photographers while still giving great tips for amateur photogs. Bought this book twice, once for a friend and once for me. Have since recommended the book to new moms looking to take great photos of their babies. Both books came with dirty covers. Book condition was fine, however when buying new products I expect them to look new. Buyer be aware. Still a good purchase, just don't be disappointed. Would have given 5 stars for content.

This book tells you the secrets behind taking beautiful pictures that speak and are heart-felt. It is a very light book, clearly written and visually explained. You can easily follow the advise of the author and produce pictures of your loved ones that make you feel proud. (Btw, I knew nothing about photography when i read the book.. I don't know if it's helpful for those who have a background, but I definitely recommend it for those who don't)
