Me Ra Koh’s Tips for Photographing Your Baby

Photos of your baby… I can’t think of any worldly possessions more valuable.

But I remember coming home with my first child, Jackson, ten years ago, armed with a Canon film SLR I had inherited from my Dad, and being completely stumped as how to capture my son’s incredible sweetness on film. I wanted my photos to be as gorgeous as he was. I wanted my photos to show how much I was in love with him. But, it wasn’t easy!

Oh, how I wish I had had teachers like Me Ra Koh to show me the secrets to photographing babies. (AND I wish I had had the internet and digital cameras like we have now.)


I stumbled my way through (and spent $2000 on developing) that first year. BUT you don’t have to!

Me Ra is teaching mothers EVERYWHERE — online, on TV, and in her fabulous book, “Your Baby in Pictures.” Also, Me Ra has teamed up with DisneyBaby to bring you photographing your baby videos!

    Janice! Thank you again for such a sweet post! And I totally agree with you, the photos of our ever-growing kids are the most precious, valuable memories. You simply can’t put a price tag on that photo of your little one learning to walk, or waking up with CRAZY bed head!

    Girl, I love you and appreciate ALL your support! That show is going to happen because of AWESOME friends like you!
