ON PHOTOGRAPHY: 7 PHOTOS TO TAKE OF YOUR KIDS


Finally!

You may say but here I'm sharing my second post in my mini series about photography. I'm so happy you enjoyed the first entry. You can read it here

Today I'm here to share few more tips; focusing on 10 photos to take of your kids' childhood. If you have more ideas to capture please share because I'm always looking for inspiration.


  • DETAILS
  • Capture their cuteness when they're tiny. This is so important for capturing newborn photos. Their fingers are so tiny they wrap around one of your finger. They grow so fast and documenting every little detail of their first few months will make you relive those early stages of their life when they were so fragile. 



  • GIVE THEM SPACE
  • As they grow you have to be patient. They have their own personalities and just like us, some days they don't want the camera in front of their face. My four and 1/2 years old sometimes tells "Don't take photos of me if I don't want to have my photo taken." Mmmm, yep she wants her space. So give them the space they need and just document from afar. That will give you a different perspective and allow them to be free to explore.



  • FREE WILL INTO THE WILD
  • We're all born wild but social constructs tame us. My children are wild and cuddly. Maybe for that reason their favourite place to spend time together is the campsite where we are close together and surrounded by nature (and a cool SUV). 



  • LET THEM BE LITTLE
  • Even when all they want to do at the lake is spread sand on their body. 


  • EMBRACE THE CHAOS OF THEIR CHILDHOOD
  • I don't like chaos in the house but sometimes I document that too because that's part of our children's childhood and sometimes that must be embraced (until you trip on a lego bloc and you see stars!)



  • CAPTURE THEIR IMAGINATION
  • I love observing how children employ their creativity to play. Their will take you into a world of pure joy. Look at the photo below. With rainbow on the forehead, scarf around the neck and flower trousers. I feel like she is a yoga guru.


  • CANDID MOMENTS
  • Every journey is made up with joy and tears, so why capture one side. Embrace both and capture candid moments.
