Photo Friday: Take it outside

Guest Post from Ann

Yeah, I've talked about lighting for outdoor photos here and here. This time I'm going to talk about a few other things related to taking photos of kids outside.

1. A solid-colored blanket for your kiddo to sit on is a good idea because nature is made of ants and dirt and brambles and such. (Busy blankets might start to be a distraction.)

2. Sunscreen is a must-have, especially if your babe is rockin' the bald look.

3. Pulling out bubbles at the end of a photo shoot can often add a few precious minutes to your shooting time. Plus, bubbles are awesome.

4. If you have time, take it. That gives your kid time to forget about the camera and relax and hopefully have some fun.

5. Take photos of your kid playing. There's something magical about the way they get lost in the moment. Then put your camera down and join in.
