My reply to the question posed in the title of this post is usually something along the lines of, “It depends. What type of baby?”
Then the conversation tends to go one of three ways.
The first two answers are the obvious ones. I either hear “a little boy” or, not surprisingly, “a little girl”.
The third answer is my favourite, and the one I seem to hear most often; “It’s a baby [insert random non-human species here].”
It’s not that I have anything against kids, you understand, but if you want the absolute best photographs of your new children, go find somebody who’s good at photographing babies and LOVES doing it.
The images will be worth it!
When it comes to animals, however, it’s a whole different story.
