Instead of always shooting your subject straight-on, tilt your camera a bit. Just be sure that your subject doesn't look like they are about to fall down a steep slope.

Our GodsonShe's a cutie, too. (Again, I'm pretty biased.)
The angle of Baby S. here works well, but would not have worked if the top of his head had been tilted towards the bottom left corner. Can you picture what I'm talkin' about? (I am somewhat biased, but look at those sweet little lips and cute wittle nose...isn't he beautiful?)
This week I have the distinct honor of photographing our neighbor who will be giving birth to their first child sometime this month. It will be my first maternity shoot, so send some good thoughts my way as I am a bit nervous.
Thanks for stopping by and happy picture-taking!
