The context: It was a busy Saturday morning, and my second daughter Calli Lou was about to go on her first big girl date with Daddy! The house was in chaos, I had a whinging baby attached to my hip and my 4 year old was singing Frozen so loudly I'm sure they could hear it in the Arctic. But I REALLY wanted to capture this precious moment. So I took 5 minutes out.
Here are five tips if you want to get fantastic family photos (in a rush):
1) SET THE SCENE BUT KEEP IT SIMPLE
2) GET THE LIGHT RIGHT
3) LET THEM PLAY
4) GET MOVING
5) GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
And I know it's corny, but have fun as you do it. The photos ALWAYS turn out better if you enjoy yourself. xxx Anna
