Happy Day 27 of our Month of Photo Fun. Did you have fun with yesterday's assignment? Did you capture some of what makes your loved ones special? Today's tip can help you continue in that assignment. Remember to include the details.
When photographing our loved ones, it's easy to zero in on their faces, to get caught up in shooting them how we see them everyday. But it's important to remember to get the details.
An exciting reunion or family event brings us lots of happy faces, but don't forget to shoot the details put into making it such a beautiful event.
Sure their faces look hilariously adorable in their costumes, but don't forget to shoot the details of it- the glittery make up, the fancy shoes, or the furry mane.
When she has her hair done special for her birthday, shoot those little details right away. We all know those perfect curls and pretty clips won't even make it through dinner!
And if your child puts on her first pair of glasses, or is adjusting to her first days of braces, photograph them. Whether it's a happy occasion for them or not, these are the details of their lives, and our minds will not remember them perfectly. How wonderful to have these images to help us remember. In the case of Brady and her new glasses below, I'm so glad I shot the details right away, as we were onto a second, and then third pair in about 2 months!
And of course, there's never a better time to capture all the details of your precious ones than when they are so fresh and new. It's so easy to be captivated by their precious little faces, but remember to get those tiny little toes too.
It's all in the details right? So don't forget them. They can add to scrapbook pages, memory books, or simply help us relive the days years from now.
What details in your family's life might you want to capture today?
