In our home, we have portraits of the children on the walls and collections of prints in little books. My kids love looking through the photo books, seeing how they looked as babies and how they've changed through the years. I love looking at those, too, because the images bring back memories that I know I wouldn't recall without having the photos to prompt me.
Yesterday I had the chance to speak about photography with a group of moms at Atlanta Christian Church in Atlanta, IL. We talked about some photography basics including composition, how to find and photograph good light, and how to photograph holidays and special family events like birthday parties. It was a real treat talking with and learning from these parents, most with young children.
If you're interested in having me speak to your group about how to better photograph your family, just drop me a note.
