tips for taking great photos of your kids!

the midwest has been hammered with the blizzard of 2011!!  and if your family is anything like mine, you’ve been out with your kids enjoying the snow.  what a great time to capture some family photos to remember this occasion!  here are some tips to help you take some awesome photos:

1.  get down to their level to show how much snow is surrounding them.

2.  zoom in to capture their snow-covered faces.

3. action shots!!!  jumping into a snowdrift or making a snow angel.

4. once inside, photograph the trail of discarded boots, mittens, scarves and hats.  don’t forget to capture the hot chocolate party that follows!!

as i was outside with my family earlier today (taking photos, of course) i couldn’t help but think about looking through the photos ten years from now and saying “remember when . . . ”

stay warm!!
