    In a past life, I worked for an outfit doing children's home portraits. We used big AC strobes, direct light, a main and a fill. We did not shoot before the babies were at least two months old. As others suggested, there should be ways around this and a single bounce would be the obvious solution, if the available light is not sufficient.

    Ah yes, remember the good ol' days when they put newborns in the hospital "nursery" so all the dads and relatives could take pictures?

    Oh, and what about back a few years ago when all the rage was for Dad, now allowed into the delivery room, using his bright-lighted videocam to shoot "the birth event"?

    Folks, I believe you are over-thinking this!

    OP - just shoot the damned picture and next time - keep your mouth shut!

    Dad (who was shooting TX/Acufine with a 50/1.2 and no flash) was told "no pictures in the nursery," but got off a good number of shots of Melchi before finding that out. I'm not sure if they were worried about liability, pedophiles, or what, but it did seem to be another sign that the world has gone mad.
