From the moment a baby is born enormous physical changes begin to take place; within a month it is almost impossible to remember what the newly-born child originally looked like. Photographing Your Baby and Toddler shows how to record a child's development, from the moment of birth to a playful, three-year old toddler. John Hedgecoe gives the benefit of his enormous experience and demonstrates how to photograph babies in a wide-ranging variety of situations and photographic styles, from the first formal portrait, which can be used for the christening invitation, to the intimate shot of baby's first feeding attempts, bringing pleasure to parents and other relatives for many years to come.
John Hedgecoe is the world's best-selling author of practical photography books. His titles have been published in thirty-five languages and have influenced and been adopted as teaching aids by photographic schools throughout the world. Examples of his work are in numerous international public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and London's Tate Gallery. He established the School of Photography at the Royal College of Art, London, in 1965, becoming Professor of Photography in 1975, a post he held until 1994 when he was elected Emeritus Professor.
