It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year again…the holidays! Any one else already feeling the busyness of it all? I feel like this month is the busiest I have been in forever. One thing on my priority list though is taking a picture of my girls to send out with a Christmas card.

I also wanted to share a few quick tips about taking pictures of your child that I have learned that might make the task easier.
1. Pick a location they are comfortable at.
For my girls this usually means our home. It’s easier on us all and if they are crazy no one else can see 😉 We took these pics in our backyard. You could even get fancy with a fun setup!
2. Let them have something in their hands (toy, treat, prop). This is especially good for toddlers. I know it helps my little one stay focused for a bit so I can take some pictures when she isn’t in the mood for them.
3. Have a helper to get their attention. You can see how my girls were looking off to the side in some pictures because daddy was being silly. Nothing like a silly parent to get kids attention.
4. Ask them to dance. Miss E was really not into these pics, or any pictures as of late recently. So we put them on the bench and started to get them dancing. She really likes to wiggle, so we focused on that.
5. Get them to look at the camera with questions. If the children are a bit older and you are having a hard time getting them to look at the camera (and desire them too), try asking them about things that will make them look at you. Such as “What color is my camera?” and then be silly about how you think it’s really yellow or something.
Of course, every child is different, but it’s worth exhausting all options if you are having a hard time with pictures. You never know what might work. Oh, and one more thing. Looking at ads can help give you a picture idea! Here are a few inspiration pics from OshKosh.
