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.

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 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.

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.

Bought MANY copies of this book to give as gifts over more than a decade! It is actually very hard to find in print these days so was delighted to find it a few years ago--ordered three copies, all of which I've now distributed to delighted recipients!

Simple, to the point with GREAT illustrations, this book is a wonderful "how-to" walk into baby (and beyond) pics that will pay off for the reader's/user's entire life.

It is not only instructive but also ENJOYABLE. Techniques and suggestions are easy to employ and will result in creative ideas, better technical skills and treasures to last a lifetime!

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.

(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 is the book I wish I'd had when my son was a baby. It's been my standard baby gift for about 10 years. It has simple but brilliant advice, well illustrated with examples: get in close, use soft natural light coming in from the side, turn off the flash, take lots of pictures. Parents are thrilled to take great pictures of their little ones.
