Normally I don't photograph people because they are pains and they move. In my black and white photography class at OU-C, we were givin a portrait assignment. I need to tweek the contrast with some filters in the darkroom tomorrow, but its a good start.
I like using babies, because you basically tell the parents where you want them to be, and then tell the parents to make the kid happy. It is just your job to capture the times you think should be remembered.
