Babies are joy to work with unlike soft toy props. OK, I’m kidding – I’m a massive teddy fan but they do pose a problem in terms of using them in photos. Kids obviously love to grab them, and knock them over and then you’ve got a picture of your child next to Peter Rabbit’s bottom rather than his charming face!
In this particular example, there was only one photo where Peter Rabbit remained upright and looking at the camera but I preferred the expression of the baby in the other photo. So rather than compromise, I did a little edit to move the head from one to the other to create the perfect Peter Rabbit and his buddy shot!
