Join the Photo
Some parents get so caught up in capturing cute ages and stages of their kids' lives that they don't have pictures that include themselves. Your children will enjoy photos of you holding them and interacting with them. Family photos are a great way to show kids how much they are loved.
Photograph others with the child, too. Have a big sister feed the baby, ask Grandpa to dance with his granddaughter, or capture a father and son playing ball together. As often as possible, get the whole family together for a portrait or offer to take a few pictures of your spouse with the kids. Including other people doing things with your child will help capture the child's essence and personality, adds Korona.
