DIY Saturday!

Aug 16, 2014

Do you need pictures but don’t want to spend the time and or money paying someone?  Being a mother, I completely understand.  Here are a few things you can do to get some great pictures at home.  So get creative!  Take your camera…or your really high end smart phone, and start snapping. 

Keep them happy – You can use your kids toys or blankets for props.  This way they can have fun and you can capture some great shots.  

Let there be Light – think about light.  You will need a good light source to get your shots.  Be it the sun or an extra lamp, it’s good to think ahead.  Natural light by a window is wonderful.
  
In the Mood! –  Kids often are the best when they’ve had a good rest so it might be good to take pictures in the morning or in the afternoon after a good nap.

Ready for my close-up! – Think about all kinds of different angles.  High, Low, close up and far away.  Experiment with your pictures.

Have fun! – If you have fun, so will your kids! 

-Happy Pictures taking 🙂
