It’s the summer! The kids are now off school, and whether you are going away or having water fights in your back garden you may want to take a few snaps to remember it all! Here’s a few tips (and a few rather old snaps of mine! Good thing my kids don't read this or they might be slightly miffed with me!).
2. Take More Than One Photo
The beauty of digital photography is that you can take several similar photos and select the one you like best to keep. Burst mode is great for action shots too. Just remember to delete the extra ones, they do eat up the memory!
3. Take Photos of Your Everyday
Baking cookies. Playing games. Chasing each other. All of the things that make your family unique are the most important things to look back on, not the fact that you visited a famous landmark and took a selfie there.
4. Shoot from Their Eye Level
My eldest is now about 6” taller than me but while they are still shorter than you, get down to your child’s eye level to take their photo.
5. Get In Some Photos Too
Don’t be the ghost. I’m very guilty of this one myself but get in some photos too, whether you use a tripod, a dreaded selfie-stick or get someone else to take the photo. It’s important.
