Top 5 Tips To Photograph Mother And Child
Keep experimenting with angles:
Make sure you are photographing kids under a relaxed natural habitat. Finding flattering angles is a bit tough. For mums, who are dealing with post-baby effects, try shifting your weight to your back foot to attain a better angle. Double chins can be avoided by tightening their mouth. Remember to hold the baby by the hip rather than squishing them up! To avoid baby weight. We only emphasize body positivity! If the mother feels sensitive about it, you can involve the dad. Have the father hold the baby and the mother can snuggle from behind.
Have some fun:
Play out with the children with the games they have fun playing. Lifting babies up and lightly tickling always work the best. Cuddles are the best and the most intimate moments to capture. Challenge the kids to kiss the mother’s nose to capture the shot. Photographing kids is not easy. But it can always be fun. Especially when the child is old enough to participate.
Focus On Little Moments:
A mother holding the little fingers of her child displays a beautiful feeling of caring, comfort, and warmth. Take a walk down a park while photographing kids to focus on their chemistry with their mother. Capturing those quiet moments is important because years later, these tiny moments would be cherished like treasures. Gentle-kind moments like caressing the child’s face, or calming them down are beautiful scenery.
Assist to beat shyness:
If the mum is camera shy, focus on details. Like their teeth behind the smiles, and hands holding the baby. When the baby is growing up, such details will have a larger emotional impact on them. If the kid is shy, spend some time with him/her before shooting. Ask them for suggestions. It will help to overcome shyness.
Pay Heed On The Display :
