WELCOME TO the allison burton photography blog. I'm A timeless, vibrant photographer who loves movement.
We like our drinks stiff, not our photos.
Serving Kansas and Missouri.
I’m a mother of two beautiful children, and as you would expect, they have grown up with a camera pointed at them their entire lives. Even before I became a professional photographer I LOVED capturing images of anything I could. As a parent, we want to remember every detail of our children’s lives because we know that they just don’t stay little. We are all aware that the first birthday, the first Christmas, baptisms, first Easter, first Mother’s and Father’s Day, first day of school…ALL of these are important! We want that photo of our precious in their gorgeous new outfit, hair quaffed just right, smiling perfectly, with the light just right as they look at the camera. Before I continue, how many of you just laughed out loud because although those are our expectations, rarely is this easy??
As I was saying, we want pictures to remember every major milestone in our child’s lives and no one has the ability to have a professional photographer follow their child around 24/7. Here is where this article steps in! I see too many moms (or whomever the mom hands her camera to) attempting to take pictures and they’ve set themselves up for failure before they even hear the shutter sound.
Here are some tips to help you make sure that you have the best chance of capturing your adorable children smiling wonderfully just as you dream of doing!
Whew…I know that was a ton of information, but I hope all of these tips help you successfully capture family memories in the future. Photographing moments with your children is priceless, and I want every mom, dad, grandparent, aunt, uncle, foster parent, God parent, step parent, and best friend to know how to set themselves up for success.
Oh…one last tip…PRINT your pictures!!! Who can see that perfect moment if it isn’t displayed in your home???
