Twinkling Lights

Be sure to have it at the ready when you are going to do this photo shoot because it is fun capturing them interacting with it at this baby stage,! | Nicki Odom

Go Outside


Tip 3

The sky, fresh air, so many things to look at, being outside can make for some of the most magical candid shots. | Nicki Odom

Tip 4

Yelling their name or making your own high pitch noises, though comical, won’t always do the trick. Use noise makers to grab their attention.
