This past December I tried to capture my daughter Nadia on camera to create our holiday greeting card. After numerous tries to get her to sit still, I gave up. I finally came to the conclusion that I had to work with what I had and ended up with a montage of photos with “Nadia-in-motion.”
I should have spoken to Heather Forbes beforehand. She is a top children’s photographer whose work has been featured in well known publications such as Time Out and Cookie ( and she looks like a model to boot!). She gave me the inside scoop on how to capture your child’s personality and spontaneity on camera.
Heather is after the happy, silly, sassy, grumpy, content, irreverent, innocent and honest mood of your baby. Her love for photography developed shooting surfers and nature in California and South Africa. Now her camera focuses on babies, including her children Cameron and Jasmine. Heather holds degrees in Advertising and Journalism and splits her time between her two favorite cities, San Francisco and New York. Check out Heather’s website at www.heatherforbes.com.
