Welcome to my blog. On this page you will find articles I personally write about the photography industry and my work. You will also see blogs showing the photos from many of my photo sessions.
You don’t need to have good reasons to take photos. But sometimes it can be fun to find some good reasons to take them. In this article, I’ll explore several different ideas that will lend themselves to shooting photo. In other words – reasons to take photos!
My sister is a big fan of family history. She enjoys looking up past generations and looking at old photos of family members. One idea is to replicate those photos yourself. Look at those old family photos and try to take lookalikes with your current family.
Photos are passed from generation to generation, so why not create photos that future family members can treasure. For example, take a photo with your daughter, mother and grandma to show the generations of women in your family. You can mix this up in a variety of ways.
If you are pregnant, you will find many fun ways to show your progress and document it with photos. Years from now you will be able to show these photos to your child.
Many parents take photos of their children on the first day of school. Think of fun ways to keep taking photos of your children until they graduate from high school. Make a scrap book showing your child in the various stages of life.
Make finding out the gender of your baby a fun surprise by turning it into a fun photo that you can share. Use props like pink or blue balloons or a cute colored frame to hold around your belly.
If your pet is a member of your family, consider getting professional pet portraits. A pet photographer will be able to capture images of your pet that are much better than the snapshots you take with your phone. There are so many great ways to take some photos, whether it is at a park or in your own home.
