You've got this great space in your entry way or the perfect spot on the mantle. You've picked out the greatest frames or you got some for Christmas! Now its time to fill those frames and who better to adorn your walls and mantles than your kiddos? However, Christmas just was here a month ago, so money is a bit tighter and you don't have the time to hire a professional....Whats a mom to do?
No worries. Today I'll be offering some tips on how to get great pictures of your kids! I love photography and taking pictures of my own little one and find that taking pictures and having them to look back on is one of the greatest memories.
Here we go!
Tip #1 : Know your kiddos.
This kinda goes without saying but I often mistake this rule too. Know your kids. Know what is the best time for them to get pictures taken. The best time of day to take pictures outdoors is usually before 10am and about an hour before sunset. However, in my personal experience Eleanor just isn't up for having pictures at that time. So we go on her schedule. Sure, it may not be the ideal time but if we are going outside we find a nice shaded area and take some shots there!
