Taking Better Pictures of My Kids – The Beginning

By Emily |

The first week of the new year is coming to a close, and one of my goals for this year is to become a better photographer and capture more memories of my kiddos and family.

So this week I decided to dig out the manual for my camera and I actually read a bit! Then, I tried taking some pictures in different lighting with different settings.  I still have absolutely no idea what I’m doing as far as taking good pictures goes, but I figure it’s as good a place to start as any. And I’m pretty happy with some of the shots I was able to capture this week.

To help hold me accountable for taking better quality pictures, I thought I’d start a little round-up of photos here on Toddler Times and share my pictures with you and maybe (eventually) give you some tips that I’m learning along the way, so you to can take the best photos of your precious ones that you can!

Here’s my photos from this week:

Beginning to become a better photographer

First Snowfall

We had our first real snowfall of the winter, and the kids were so excited to get outside and play. I loved that I could bundle them up and send them out, and not have to stay out there with them the whole time! Mommy break!

So, those are my best photos from this week. I didn’t edit any of the photos in any way — that’s another skill I’ll have to learn along the way! I can only get better from here, right?

What are your tips for capturing the best photos of your kids that you can?
