Tip of the Week

As parents we take a lot a pictures. Now with smart phones and tablets, we all have cameras. So it’s time to share some tips on how to get better pictures of our kids, animals, or whatever we are taking a photo of.
So tip #1 is something that anyone can do that doesn’t require any fancy camera or equipment.
And it is… (drum roll please)…
GET DOWN ON THEIR LEVEL!
I can’t tell you how many times I look at cute photos of kids on the first day of school, or in their new Easter dress and I see something like this….

The first thing I always think is, why didn’t they get down on their level?

See how much more fun it is? How much better it looks? It’s like a miracle!

Another example above. Much better, right? And I’m not saying that we should never shoot down on a subject. I do it occasionally, but it’s more for this…

So next time you get out the camera, for whatever reason, remember to get down. I promise it’s totally worth it! It might take only a funny little squat if you have an 8 year old. Or with a baby, you might be laying on the floor. Either way, your picture will be TONS better. And an added bonus may be a great smile or laugh that you capture when your 8 year-old watches you stick your bum out trying to get the shot.
So remember to get down on their level! It’s fun, free, and easy to do! So go take some amazing photos.
