5. Get down on their level.
Most shots of kids are taken looking down from an adult’s perspective. Moving closer to the ground not only make your photos more interesting, but also gives you the chance to film your kids at their eye level.
6. Shoot from above.
While shooting at your kids’ eye level is usually best, you can get a lot of cute shots from above. It’s also smart to take a few of these shots because changing your camera angle during a shoot helps to keep kids moving and engaged.
15. Dress kids in clothes they’re comfortable in.
If your kid never wears a suit, a photo shoot is not the best time for him to start wearing one unless you want him tugging at his collar the whole time. Of course, if dressing up is your kid’s thing, then go for it: a kid in a suit is adorable.
19. Consider investing in a digital SLR.
A digital SLR may be pricey, but the quality of photos you’ll get with it is much better. DSLRs also have no shutter lag (like point and shoot cameras do), so you’ll be able to capture the moment without motion blur.
