On a recent trip to Illinois, I stopped by a friend’s house to meet and photograph her three month old, Liam, and her two dogs, Abby and Dorie. Liam loves to get kisses by Dorie (left), while Abby (middle) is more or less indifferent to Liam’s presence. Shooting babies is similar to shooting dogs: you have just a split second to get their attention and you better be ready to capture that shot. My friend thought of a few creative setups, including the pumpkin shown above. Happy belated Halloween!
