Few things in life can be as rewarding as photographing babies- after coaxing an expression of cherubic joy - caught with a click.
For the best baby shots, photograph during the daytime when there is plenty of natural daylight. Simple baby shots are usually the best; there is no need for cluttered or overly bright backgrounds.
To take memorable pictures try to capture the baby engaged in an activity, or with family and friends. As well as a good camera, a standard lens of around 50mm is a good tool for baby portraits. Babies offer a great opportunity for creating beautiful and treasured photographs, though they are by no means an easy subject! Over the past few years, a hot topic in parenting has been whether or not parents should focus on building their children’s self esteem. As a teacher and as a parent, I am a firm believer that part of my parenting responsibilities include helping our children build a strong self esteem. Did you know that kids who have positive feelings about themselves have an easier time dealing with conflict and the pressures of life. When children have positive self esteems they feel in control of their lives and know how to stand up for themselves.
Children with low self esteem don’t feel like they can handle challenges and feel frustration and anxiety when faced with life challenges.
Teach Our Children How to Handle Conflict and Failure – Life is full of conflict and we all have to deal with failure.
Provide Challenges For Our Children – We have to provide challenges for our children, that they can overcome. Set Our Children Up For Success – Help your child develop talents and acquire skills that they enjoy and excel in.
Don’t Set Our Children Up To Fail – Embarrassing our children to “teach” them will not help them feel better about themselves.
To build a positive, growth mindset, praise your child’s hard work (rather than intelligence). A mother of five, who enjoys sharing her love of all things creative in hopes of inspiring other women and families.

It is noticed in birds when they are expecting a baby they build nest and that is where the saying goes that you have to feather the nest when you are expecting or once you have had your baby, that is do your baby a room. You can find many bookshelves, kids tables and chairs at sale or at flea market and repaint in same color such that you have nursery like you dream of.

Here are some easy steps you can follow to take the perfect portrait of the apple of your eye. Dona€™t be afraid to keep the camera shooting rather than waiting for that perfect pose or moment because somewhere in 30 consecutive shots will be one winner.
This can include making funny faces, playing hide and seek from behind a piece of cloth, or making goofy clucking noises. A great way to get a photo that looks professional is to get some white, grey or beige cloth and lay it over two chairs. Siblings, especially if they are close in age can add extra interest to the photograph a€“ get them playing together, eating or interacting as friends. Turn the mode dial to AV (Aperture Priority) mode and select a large aperture for a soft and blurred background. They feel more confident in making their own decisions and are better able to maintain healthy relationships as they get older. Provide opportunities for them to participate in activities that encourage cooperation instead of competition. Imposing unrealistic expectations and challenges so they fail will not make them fell better about themselves either.
Be attentive, show affection and when there is need for discipline, always follow with an increase of love.
If we are always putting ourselves down, and saying negative things about our abilities, we will raise children who feel the same way.
As mother’s we are trying to juggle so many things while we listen and spent time with our kids. To some parents this can be a time to splurge while some like to do it keeping a budget in mind. Always go for hard floors such as wood, tiles and marbles in kid’s room as it is easier to clean and don’t harbor allergy which is very essential things to take care. If you wish to share any posts or photographs from this site on your blog or website, you may use one picture with a link to the original post.


Use window light if possible and avoid the harsh sun because it tends to casts shadows and is also unhealthy for the babya€™s skin. Therea€™s nothing worse than capturing a great moment that is slightly blurry because the shutter was too slow. Research is also showing that a healthy self esteem is the greatest defense against bullying. They take those beliefs into new situations and feel strong about their ability to do hard things. We need to be good role models and speak positively about who we are, what we look like, and the effort we are putting in to our own lives.
When children bring home problems from school, express concerns and ask questions, we need to be patient and listen.
And definitely have a rocking chair in room which has soft seats, arm cushion for inevitable late night feeding.

When shooting in monochrome consider contrast; black and white backgrounds will be the most striking, and contrast in the lighting will also give a dramatic effect.
A beanbag rather than a tripod is great for stabilizing your camera and getting down on the ground to a baby's level, and a silver or white reflector is ideal for bouncing light so that it is soft and flattering.
Not to mention that low self esteem leads to behavior problems, poor school performance, trouble with friendships and relationships with adults. They need to always know they can express themselves at home and they will be respected and cared for, regardless. Use pretty green color, warm pink, light blue, yellow and all colors and not give monochromatic blue or pink look. Even when our children don’t succeed, we should still praise them for the energy effort and skill they put forth. Starting young will make their lives more manageable and set them up to be strong and adjusted adults. Use the auto settings to make sure you get a sharp image, and let the camera choose flash if it is necessary. A chaperone or helper will make all the difference so that you can focus on capturing the best moments.
