* Make them want the camera
As you cannot negotiate with them to look into the camera, you should trick them to aim for the camera. The trick would be the same whether it is babies or animals. Get their favorite toy and attach it above your lens. They would be captivated and have their eyes to the lens. Never use permanent glue or adhesive to attach the toy. Use elastic band or ribbon to let it dangling near the camera. It is very effective and save you time in the photoshoot.
* Timing is everything
By timing, i do not mean the timing of the camera, but the timing of the photoshoot. Babies have their sleeping schedule and cats are nocturnals. It would be best to choose the time when they are active. It would be difficult to capture a happy baby picture when the baby is sleepy or hungry.
* Do not make it feels like a photoshoot
Being surrounded by lights and cameras might not be the usual environment for babies or animals. If possible, use natural lighting. Keep the vibe happy and natural as if it is not a professional photo session, yet the result would have professional quality.
