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. Taking photos with young children can be difficult when you don’t have an extra hands. Taking instagram worthy photos with you and your kids is possible though!
It took me lots of trial and error to figure out the formula for taking instagram photos with my kids 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 I take instagram ready images with my kids? 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 instagram photos with your kids!
I have two posts about apps and all my photo gear that I have linked directly everything. You can find them here!
