The experience of studio photography for your newborn and family is wonderful and a great way to capture those special moments of life, but how do you capture the everyday moments at home?
Have you ever been playing with your newborn or toddler, and you stopped and thought, “Gosh, this would be a beautiful photo!” So, you run to get your camera to capture it, but your child was impatient holding a pose as you struggled with the camera settings trying to get the perfect shot? It might be easy to take a snapshot, but not always something that you’ll want to frame on the wall; it could be fuzzy, shadowy, and such. Documenting your family’s life and experiences with photos are just as important as scheduling professional sessions to capture the benchmarks.
To help you along the way here are some tips for “Do It Yourself” (DIY) newborn photography and family photography, to help to give more quality to the images you snap and to help capture those fleeting moments.
- Keep the Child Involved and Having Fun

Perhaps you have the creativity to think of picture-perfect settings for your photos, you just don’t have the skills to know all the settings on your camera that could help you take great shots. Any type of camera can take great photos, you just may have to change the focus or light settings. If you want to become more knowledgeable in the general techniques for photography, take a class from Rita at Bitsy Baby Photography, and learn essential knowledge to use your camera at home. In these workshops you will learn about 10 key elements to capturing impressive images, elements of exposure (ISO, shutter speed, aperture), basic camera modes, resources for printing and sharing, and an introduction to lens capabilities. The basic knowledge offered in this workshop will help you take all types of pictures!
