We all love our children, but capturing the emotion of love is
not always easy. It’s easy to keep the camera away from the calm moments throughout
the day to avoid disruption. Turn off the flash, prepare your exposure
properly, and grab one sweet shot.
I love capturing a true laugh between family members. I seek
genuine moments where real connections burst through the photo. Wait for a
humorous moment rather than forcing a laugh.
Connections are not always between people. Often times your
children will zone in on desires such as ice cream or a special toy. In these
moments, you can photograph specific expressions that explain just what they’re
Capture these sweet, soft moments by following your subject
through the lens. When the tender moment presents itself, grab the shot.
Moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas all provide comfort throughout
the day. A hug goes a long way and means so much. These moments are truly
sweetest when the child initiates the hug. Make sure to have your camera handy
and take advantage of the moment.
6. Favorite Activity
Reading, writing and playing all generate special feelings
and expressions. Don’t ignore these quiet times. Sneak around the corner and
grab that one shot before you distract your child.
Sometimes we try so hard to satisfy and comfort our babies,
and nothing seems to satisfy them. We feel their frustration and pain.
Sometimes a warm cuddle and a captured moment is the sweetest.
All of our children have their moments that require our full
attention. It might be caused by hurt feelings or even an injury. Whatever the
cause, there will be moments when mom or dad can make it all better.
On most occasions brothers and sisters play well together
but often they argue. However, on really special occasions they will show their
true love for each other.
I love capturing a connection between two tiny new friends.
They seem to instantly connect, there are no inhibitions, and they almost
always find something in common. Even without carrying on a conversation they
are able to communicate.
