Last week, I was chatting with a friend who’d bought an expensive new DSLR Camera. She was eager to road-test it. She had planned a big day out with her children and husband, full of expectation of the wonderful memories she would capture. On downloading the images, she was sadly disappointed that the photos were not as beautiful and magical as she’d hoped – despite the fancy new camera! It’s not the first time I’ve heard this story. So many parents ask me how they can take better pictures of their children. So I thought I’d share some of my top tips for photographing your own kids.
