Award Winner | Photo of the Day | September 17, 2012
Taking pictures of moving kids and babies can often be a challenge, sleeping babies on the other hand is a lot easier…providing you find the right angle. This is Emma, our friends first new born, sleeping on her mummy after what looked to be a very satisfying feed. She quickly became one of my favorite subjects in subsequent months but I must admit this photo is one of my favourite of hers. Taken with my 35mm prime, it was the perfect lens in order not to use the flash in fear of waking Emma up. The picture was taken in Cape Town, South Africa.
