4 Popular Children’s Photo Shoot Theme Ideas

As a parent there are fewer finer things in life than watching your child grow up. Of course we love to see our children grow older. Secretly though, there is a part of us that would like them to stay little forever. Sadly we can’t freeze time. What we can do is make and cherish memories that we’ll remember forever. Capturing memories with photographs is a perfect way of reminding ourselves of how precious life can be. Especially where our kids are concerned. Because of this, more and more parents are hiring professional children’s photographers. If you’re thinking of having a children’s photo shoot, here are 4 popular children’s photo shoot theme ideas for you to choose from. Our favourite from the list is the vintage photoshoot.

Vintage Photoshoot

Over the years, vintage photoshoot themes have become very popular. Because of this, you may wish to think about having a vintage photoshoot theme for your children. Whether you go for a vintage country theme or an art deco theme from the 30s, your images will be stunning. Professional photographers often specialize in vintage themes so speak to your photographer before booking.

Their favourite toys

When we think of kids playing we often think of a young child sat playing with their favourite toys. If this reminds you of your child, you might wish to go for a toy theme. This is a very popular as it captures children playing naturally. It also leaves them happy so you can enjoy plenty of smiling photographs. Using your child’s favourite toys is a great way of adding a personal touch to your images.

Balloons

There’s just something about balloons that children can’t seem to get enough of. If used correctly, balloons will help you get some stunning children’s photographs. Professional photographers often have children grab onto a handful of bright and colourful balloons to get the shots they’re after. If you’re looking for a summer theme for example, combing balloons with blue skies and green grass is ideal. Balloons add bright colour to photographs and help keep children entertained. You can have as many balloons as you like. You should also remember to consider which colours you choose.

Teddy bears picnic

If you’re really looking for cute images, a teddy bears picnic theme is the way to go. Your photographer will have your child sat at a small table and chairs, surrounded by stuffed teddy bears. Each bear will have its own little cup and saucer. Some people like to take things one step further. Here they go with a vintage (photoshoot) teddy bears picnic theme. The results from these shoots speak for themselves.

Little Tomboy – Tips For Photographing Young Kids

Getting kids to smile and pose for the camera is very difficult. Children like playing, they like exploring, and it is hard to get them to sit still. If you want to get beautiful photographs of your little tomboy, it can be tough getting them to keep still and to pose for the camera. If you put a child in front of a camera, they will often smile in an unnatural and slightly comical way. They will also tend to run off in the opposite direction. Now you see what we mean about it being tough to photograph young children. If you do want to get amazing images of your little Tomboy however, we have some tips for you to try. Take a look below and see how many of these tips you can try out the next time you have your camera handy.

Stop saying cheese!

As human beings, our natural instinct seems to always be to say cheese as soon as a camera is pointing at us. If you’re the one taking the photographs, stop telling your children to say cheese before you snap the picture. As soon as children hear the word ‘CHEESE’ they instantly put on their fakest smile, which is not natural. Instead, try to photograph your child playing naturally. This will give you a more natural and authentic photograph that you can treasure forever.

Find the right outfit for them

Little Tomboy photo shoots are very popular at the moment because the outfits your child wears will look incredibly cute. If you are looking for a Tomboy theme for your baby girl, jeans, a nice shirt, and perhaps a flat cap will all work very well. You could even accessorize with glasses. If you want a more natural theme, choose colours and patterns that compliment your child’s features. You don’t need to dress them like they’re about to make their way down the catwalk, just dress them smartly.

Relax

Remember, photographing young children is difficult, but you should never get stressed or anxious. If you do this, your children will pick up on the bad vibes. This is the last thing you want because photographs are supposed to be happy and memorable. Let your children play and be themselves, and don’t get mad if they won’t pose or keep still. Just be patient, relax, and take things at their pace. If you don’t get the shots you want, don’t worry, you can always try again tomorrow.

Try different settings

To really capture your Little Tomboy in the best possible light, try photographing her in different settings. Let her play in the garden for a while, and let her explore. She may play on the slide for a while, or she may decide to play in the dirt. Don’t try sitting her in front of a fake backdrop, follow her around and take pictures in different surroundings. This is a great way of getting her in a natural setting, plus it means your pictures have more variety.

Handsome Little Man – Newborn Photography Tips

Do you want to get great shots of your handsome Little man? Great, you’ve come to the right place. Newborn photography is very hard. Because of this, not just anybody can pick up a camera and take great newborn photos. To be able to properly photograph newborns you need patience, an eye for photography, and knowledge. As a parent, you probably don’t have much free time. This can make it very hard to get stunning images of your handsome Little man. Just because it’s hard however, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. If you want to take great pictures of your tiny bundle of joy, here are some newborn photography tips for you to try.

Invest in a good camera

Even if your smart phone has a great camera built in, you should still go out and buy a proper camera. If you want to be able to take great photos, you need the right equipment. Smart phones are not built to be used just as cameras. This means you should go out and invest in a good camera if you want to take great photographs. You don’t need to spend a fortune, just do your research, set a budget, and find a camera that has good reviews. Smart phone cameras can be useful as a last resort, but in a perfect world you should take photographs using a good quality camera.

Find your angle

Taking photos of newborns is often a matter of trial and error. To get great pictures of your handsome Little man, you will need to find the perfect angle. Get creative and try new things. Try getting low down and shooting upwards. If that doesn’t work, try getting above them, or perhaps go for a close up shot? Often you will find that photographers recommend nursing shots. These shots are where a parent or sibling nurses the child as the pictures are taken. This is great because it is natural, it relaxes the child, and it helps keep them still.

Use macro lenses

One reason why people love newborns so much is because of their cute body parts. As a photographer, this is ideal because it gives you something to zoom in on and focus on. For example, you could isolate the nose and zoom in to get super cute pictures. Zooming in with a macro lens is great because it helps to enhance detail that normal lenses would have missed. They also help to add a bit of variety to your pictures.

Always have your camera close by

You never know when something amazing may happen with your baby, so always have your camera close by. Your handsome Little man could roll over for the first time. He could smile, stand up, and much more. If you have your camera with you at all times, you are far more likely to be able to capture this beautiful moment. If your baby does do something incredibly cute and you don’t have your camera with you, you will kick yourself with frustration.
