Struggling to capture those “insta-worthy” photos you see with moms and kids all smiling and laughing and cute and yet every thing you try turns out to be a blurry flubbering mess?! BEEN THERE.
It took me lots of trial and error to figure out the formula that works for me, but I think me and my crew have perfected our art of the self timer and I have been so happy to have captured so many precious moments with MAMA IN THE FRAME too. If you’re anything like me, 90% of your camera roll is filled with pictures of your kids, but you are no where to be found. I set out to change that last year and have learned the tools for both shooting with iphone or real camera! When my kids look back on all these memories, I want them to know that I was there. Not just behind the camera but there with them, in these little moments, frozen and captured in the frame forever.
( to defeat the huns! Mulan puns anyone? )
So how do I do it? I’ll break it down below! I’m going to give you two methods – the “every mom” version where I detail how to capture with just your phone and everyday objects. Followed by the “mom-tog” version. Which is exactly how /what I use now to take my photos with the kids.
Everything I previously mentioned is pretty good to keep in mind here too, but with some upgraded tools you can get some pretty spectacular photos!
I have two posts about apps and all my photo gear that I have linked directly everything. You can find them here!
