Another perspective for taking photos is to get up… this is an angle I do not as often however its great to get of the kids sitting, laying, or playing in the grass or even inside. Mommy just has to get up higher than then, shoot some frames and then ever so calmly call their name, for them to look uo. this is where you will want a fast shutter speed to capture them sweet faces, especially if your doing a close up of their face.
And even my puppy…
Getting above can also showcase just how small and precious a child (including fur babies) is! Also capturing more detail depending on your angle 🙂
One thing I do enjoy with the darker evenings is in the winter I do more indoor photography of the kids and our everyday life, considering spring and summer when it’s nice out we are outside alot, so during the fall and winter its my chance to capture indoor fun! Even just the indoor everyday, one day you will look back and these photos will flood you with memories!
Happy Shooting… Up high or down low – oh and if your worried you’ll look like a fool laying on the ground, even twisted to get that angle or hanging over your deck or trying to balance on a chair or the edge of the couch, we’ll you will look silly but that will help bring out more natural laughs with the kids. If your afraid of what others will think of how you look, lol its all about you and what you are aiming to achieve – I promise you it’s these angles that will provide you with some awesome ‘real’ shots of your kids childhood!
I can guarantee if you drive by my place various times you will see me doing many of these things!
