Photography Projects for You and Your Children

I, along with my industry are terrified of the coming months. This potential lockdown could (and probably will) bring the photography industry to it's knees.

I can't offer much in these times- I can't help homeschool your children, I can't help to nurse anyone back to health so I'm going to stick to what I know.

So here is a little escape from THE VIRUS that provides you with extra time with your littles and some beautiful memories... The only way I know how :). Treat it like a scavenger hunt and at the end turn it into a photobook perhaps? You don't need an expensive camera for this- you probably already have one in your pocket.

I'm going to spend a little time putting together a photography scavenger hunt for to be done by parents or children (AND children? Make it a combined effort!). We all need a distraction and it can't be stressed enough how much we are all beginning to loath Ryder and his stupid gang of pups.

1) A Closeup of details. Feet, eyelashes, a swirl of hair... the list is endless of little details that you will forget.

2) Playtime- pretend play, play with someone else- whatever your child loves to do most.

3) Naptime- those sweet, silent moments. Capture them quick and don't wake them up!

4) Natural Light- easy. Turn off your lights and put them in front of a window. Natural light is so beautiful (which is why I exclusively shoot with it), the way it wraps around the subject and (on a cloudy day) softens the scene.

5) Documentary- capture your home as it is with your children. Don't tidy up, don't try too hard, just capture it all and document this period of parenthood.

6) Favourite Outfit. Before it no longer fits!

7) A Silhouette- I'm actually not much a fan of real silhouettes, for me it creates too much of a 2D effect so I tend to do more of a backlit image than a true silhouette. The trick to this is to have your subject in front of a bright light, e.g. a window.

8) Eyes. The windows to our souls- definitely one of my favourites (and my customers).

9) Cuddles (tip: get them just before naptime)

10) Self Portrait. If you do only one of these then make it this one. Set the time and scoop them up!
