Capture the Moment

7 ways to take creative and meaningful family photos

Tell your family story in one click.

Give your kids the camera

Part of the story is how they choose to tell it.

Think like an Animal Planet videographer

  Don’t just take a cute close up. Capture them at play, in the middle of the tantrum, doing their homework. You know — wild animals in their natural environment.

Capture everyday objects

Teddy bears, binkies, their battered lunchbox and scuffed up shoes, the row of slippers next to the door… All these objects tell a story.

Take regular photos at the same place, every month or year

It could be your front door, or while holding  a cherished teddy bear. It gives that point of reference that really shows how your child grows.

Ask kids to tell the story of a photo

Every month, print your funniest photos and paste them on a scrapbook. Ask kids to describe what’s going on. Older kids can even put their captions down in their own handwriting.

Get in the photo

Your kids will want pictures of you and with you. Who cares if you haven’t put on concealer? That’s what filters are for.
