Starting a Baby Photography Business? Decide if you like babies and are comfortable handling babies. Attend workshops specifically for baby photography. Learn shooting in various lights and in various situations. By the time you are taking baby pictures you should understand taking ictures, lighting without having to focus on adjusting the equipment, because the attention span of a baby is minimal.
