Capture the story of your baby’s first year!
The first twelve months of your child’s life are full of precious, fleeting moments, from sleepy newborn yawns to first smiles and wobbly first steps. Why entrust your memories to hastily taken snapshots—or worse yet, none at all? Let professional photographer (and mom) Me Ra Koh help you capture the moments with 40 beautiful “photo recipes” anyone can do, with any camera. Telling your baby’s story in pictures has never been easier!
Me Ra Koh loves cameras, kids, and parents, and spends her life bringing them together. Her work and photo recipes have been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Lifetime Television, VH1, and she is a regular guest contributor to The Nate Berkus Show on NBC. She is proud to be one of Sony’s Artisans of Imagery, as well as host her annual SOAR! Scholarship for aspiring women photographers. You can find her at www.merakoh.com.
“Babies don’t take direction very well (if they did we should start by getting them to shush on airplanes), but Me Ra Koh has made a specialty of coaxing warm, memorable photos from infants, newborns and children.”
—The New York Times
