Tip #4: Don’t Forget Yourself

April 05, 2010

Here’s the fourth in our 10-part series of articles from Sabra Krock, on how to best capture images of your child.

In our house, I’m the family documentarian, which means that I am not often in the frame. While I enjoy (OK, I won’t say prefer) being behind the camera, I know that I will regret not having some images with me in them.

I bought a point-and-shoot camera so my husband and other family members can confidently shoot pictures too. I’ve also mastered the art of self-timers and taking photos in mirrors. Obviously, getting a professional to take some family photos is an even better option, but you can’t do that all the time.

However you shoot pictures, don’t forget to make regular cameo appearances in your family album, experiment and have fun. I am the master of the self-timer. This is a photo of Max and me hanging out the in afternoon, only a couple months after he was born.
