So, baby on the way and I am thinking my present kit will do me, but am looking for others in my boat to maybe offer some advice or tips to make things better/easier.

Gear list:

canon 80D

18-135 stm

50mm f1.8ii

35mm f2 non is

I'm pretty sure this will do me for in hospital and at home pics. Is there anything else that I am missing that would be beneficial?


I have a 5 month old and i've mainly been shooting (albeit with a FF body) with a Sigma 50mm Art. Second most used lens was the 35 f2 IS (which I used almost exclusively when his brothers were in intensive care). I've also used a 100 macro (the non-L version) for some closer-in shots (hand details etc).

One thing you may want to consider is lighting options. Since mine has been home i've been using off-camera flash bounced off the ceiling/walls quite a lot and it really doesn't seem to bother him.
