What to use for newborn baby detail photos?
4 months ago

In a few months I'm expecting an addition to the family.
I want good baby pictures! Including foot, hand and eye macros and staged shots using textiles (wrap), a background and indirect strobist lighting.

I have a little room in the budget, but I'm not sure what to use.

If anyone has examples showing the perspective of the 60mm or 105mm macro lenses for baby photos, I'd love to see them.
