Kids are fearless when taking photos. Their creativity knows no bounds. But one of the most common questions moms ask me goes something like this, “How do I give creative direction to my kids, so I don’t end up with 100-plus photos of the family dog?”
Anyone relate? Your child gets a hold of your smartphone or camera, and you end up having endless photos of your hardwood floors. Never fear; there is an artist in your child that just needs a little direction. With Blaze and Pascaline’s permission, I’m sharing a handful of their photos along with Thirteen Ways to Engage the Photographer in Your Kids!

Between now and May 4th, I have joined forces with Sesame Street and Nielsen Photo Group to bring you the My World Photo Contest that not only inspires mom, but the kids too! There is a free side for you and the kids to enter with weekly prizes and a grand prize, like a luxury family vacation in Jamaica!
Make this a fun, weekly activity with your kids by checking the My World Photo Contest site every week for the new photo challenge, inspired by Elmo the Musical. You and your little one can watch Elmo’s weekly video and then take on the photo assignment together! The weekly photo tip for the kids is easy and fun, and I’m joining Elmo in highlighting a new photo every week. Be prepared to be inspired — and enter your results so we can all be!
