When the How to Be Dad book came out years ago, my sister-in-law called to say that I'd better sit down and she would be right over. I wasn't, she said, going to believe my eyes when I saw the latest issue of the tabloid, The Star.
We hit another big number today on our Facebook page.
When these milestones come along I always marvel at the tremendous contribution the fans give to each other in the form of support and friendly criticism. All of us at HTPYB appreciate each and every one of you so much. Thank you for all of your kindness. You can't imagine how much energy all of us receive from your comments and thank you's.
If I"ve learned nothing else this past year it's how a few kind words from a stranger half way across the world can make someone's day...or month.
Every year I get requests from so many people asking for my How to Shoot Christmas Card Photos Tips. Well, here is my attempt at the most entertaining set of photo tips ever—time will tell exactly how useful they are.

I've been spending time lately looking at photographs sent in by fans of the How Photograph Your Baby Facebook page. I've critiqued, praised, teased, re-cropped, and been inspired by the work coming my way. It's been great fun and I thank all of you who have taken the time to participate. I'm planning to bring some of the photographs and my comments over here to the website where they will be more permanent and accessible. (With the photographers permission, of course.)

tough love from the how to photograph your baby facebook pagecategories:
I have three sons. Chaz is twenty. Alexander is four and Teddy is one. I have created a true American family. I don't have a unique perspective on parenthood, but it's at least unusual.
This I know: your babies are going to amaze you. I think Chaz was five when he shot me with his first you're-not-as-smart-as-I-thought-you-were glance. I can tell that Alexander's been thinking it — Teddy still thinks I'm God, and God I love him for it.
NICK KELSH grew up in Fargo, North Dakota as the second of five babies of Bud and Joyce Kelsh. He learned photography on the Leica his dad brought home from World War II and knew he was going to be a professional photographer when he was fifteen.
