How to Take Good Photos for Your Kids

Well, you may take lots of photos to memory some special occasionslike wedding, family reunion, baby born, school sports meeting orgraduating; and everyone want to make it perfect photography, so hereare some tips on how to take good photos:

The first thing to remember is to keep clicking! You're more likely toget good photos of them if you're taking more photos, and sometimes thecutest photos of them are when they're not looking straight at thecamera with a "cheese" smile.
Get down to their level - photos always look better when you're onthe same eye level as your kids. So crouch down and get more detail inyour photos rather than lots of the tops of their heads.
Use a fast shutter speed if you're using an SLR camera to keep blurat bay - if you're using a point and shoot camera, sometimes using aflash can help if they're running around like little monkeys or you canset your camera to the picture of the running man (sport) on the menufor a faster shutter speed.

Use natural sunshine as your light as much as possible - brings outbetter colors in the photo and doesn't create the same "sheen" that aflash can create. The best time of day to do this is in the morning andjust before sunset as the light is warm rather than harsh and doesn'tcreate a shadow like it will during the middle of the day. Keep yourbackground in mind - you might get the best photo of your children butthe background might let the photo down in the end.
For a photo you can blow up of your kids and frame, make sure youdon't have undesirable things in the background. Make sure you get inthe photos yourself. If you're always the one taking the photos, asksomeone else to take the picture for you - you don't want your kidslooking over their photos in years to come and not see you as you oncewere (young and gorgeous!!). If there is no one else to take it, put iton timer and set the photo up... and if all else fails - book a familyphoto shoot and avi to quicktime converter.
Every family should take the time to have at least one professionalphoto shoot in their lifetime. It not only gives kids something of akeep-sake of their family from their younger years, but it also is agreat way to save that time (or that "phase") in life forever. Justremember, you can't get that time back in their lives and it's hard toremember them so small or so cute or pulling certain faces... so getclicking - I'm sure they'll thank you in the future when you can showthem what gorgeous little monkey's they used to be.

To the people who got married and have little to no friends or family?

I was in your situation, however neither of us have many friends OR family and what family we have lives miles away. We chose to do a destination wedding in Vegas. BEST plan ever. Then when we got home, we shared photos of the big event. My husband and I just planned the wedding online and he and I showed up on our day and got married! I think the family appreciated not having to spend a fortune to attend...LOL...If you live near a beach, have it there...Small, yet intimate. Best of luck!
