Keeping up with photographing your child

>> Tuesday, January 15, 2013

When you have one or more small children at home, it is fairly easy to get caught up in the day to day grind and fail to take pictures of your children.  Some parents are great at keeping up with photographing their children, but for others it is a struggle to remember.  If you have difficulty remembering to grab your camera and click away, here are some helpful tips:

- Use your mobile phone.  A picture is a picture, even if it's grainy.  Having some pictures that may not be the optimum quality are better than having none.

- Set aside a specific day per week where you plan on taking pictures.  This can be during an outing or just a plain Wednesday at your home.  If you make it part of your routine, you'll do a better job at keeping up.

- Keep your camera in an accessible place.  If your camera is on a different floor or up in a closet somewhere, you probably won't use it as much.  Keeping your camera in a safe place in the main area of your home where your child plays ups the possibility of you grabbing it for a cute shot!

- If all else fails, go with the pros.  Purchasing a photography session or package from a professional photographer keeps track of your child's development and is a scheduled appointment that you'll take more time to go to.  Whether you sign up for a plan where you have pictures taken every few months, or even once a year, it is still landing the responsibility on someone else, you just have to show up!

How do you do with taking your child's pictures?  Are day to day pictures and video something you remember to do?
