Mamarazzi: Top Tips for Getting Super Kid Shots
Of course, every mamarazzo wants to know how to capture winning photos of her children. She wants to pick the perfect spots for shots, use lovely lighting, and make her camera’s bells and whistles sing. But the true show stopper for most moms is the ability to capture her child’s true personality in photos. A few insider tips can do the trick!

Don’t act your age.
The best way to guarantee giggles from your children is to think like a kid yourself. Figure out what makes them laugh ... and then start the show! This may mean breaking a few rules in honor of photo time. For instance, let your monkey jump on the bed or plan a ridiculously bubbly bath time.

But whatever you do, aim to capture the magic of childhood. Grab close ups of your son’s grass-stained knees. Or keep your distance and zoom out to show your daughter at play in her room. Use your imagination--right along with your child--to grab some great captures.

Catch smiling siblings.
Sibling shots are the pièce de résistance for nearly every mama--and papa, for that matter! But they can also be the most difficult images to get. How can you capture the charisma (or chaos!) of siblings without taking a trip to the looney bin?

Here’s an idea: Gather your crew and engage them in a fun-for-all activity, like blowing bubbles, playing in the sprinkler, or building a blanket fort. Step back and capture the candids that ensue.

Or hop into the Director’s chair for some shots. Mix up the words to a standard song to get a few grins. Suggest a jumping contest or try a tickle fest for fun. Balance something on your head and then let it fall to the floor. Engage your inner actress and make a big deal over the funny fails.

Encourage siblings to get close (closer ... no, ever closer!) to each other as you snap your shots. Chances are, if they’re having fun, they won’t mind the close quarters ... and yep, it even works with toddlers and tweens!

Give ‘em some star treatment.
A seemingly simple tip that can go a long way to improve your mamarazzo moments is to handle your “star” with care. Be fun, honest, and kind to your child when you’re behind the camera.

Make picture time fun ... and enjoy the experience ... rather than just getting the shot. Play games, tell jokes, or act silly along with your child. And if your children are old enough, let them be part of the photography process. Encourage your daughter to choose her own funky photo outfits. Or have your son pick his favorite places for picture-taking. If you make it fun, chances are that you’ll all enjoy camera time together.

Remember to be kind to your child, especially when taking photos. You’ll want your child to feel cherished rather than chastised when the shutter is snapping. So keep your cool, mama. And no matter how much your kids push your buttons when you’re trying to (wo)man the camera, keep it fun and upbeat. And when you’re tapped out, close the curtain!

With these tips, you’re sure to capture the winning shots you want. And even better, you might just earn a repeat performance the next time you bring out your camera!
