How To Take Better Photos Of Your Kids | 20 Day Photography Bootcamp For Moms (or Dads) | Day 15
What is it?
Welcome to RKP’s ’20 Day Photography Bootcamp for Moms’! What this is, is a 20 day blog series dedicated to teaching and challenging parents to take better photos of their kids! You will learn some basic lighting skills, natural posing for various ages, some ideas for lifestyle photos, as well as some other basic photography tips that will help bring your pictures up a notch! The best part? ANYONE can participate! Even if all you have is a cellphone! (Some lighting lessons will be tricky with a cell phone since you can’t adjust settings.) Each day I will share a tip or lesson with a photo challenge. You can then share your results in the Facebook group ‘RKPs 20 Day Photography Bootcamp for Moms (or Dads)’, on instagram with the hashtag #rkpbootcamp, or keep them to yourselfs! You can follow along day by day or take it at your own pace. You can skip days as well. There’s no rules, it’s your life. Haha.
*Note: I won’t be covering editing but theres lots of free options out there if you want to play around with that on your own. 🙂 If you really want to go all out, I’m a big fan of Lightroom!
If you DO have a DSLR (aka “fancy”) camera, I highly recommend checking out my mini guide, Control Your Camera!

Day 15 | Shoot Ideas | Activity/Playtime
*Days 10 through 15 won’t have much of a ‘lesson’. This week is about applying what you’ve learned so far in fun ways! I’ll be giving you a new ‘theme’ or idea each day for a fun photo shoot of your kid(s) right in your home!*
Todays challenge is to photograph your child DOING something they love. Maybe that’s playing with lego, cars, or dolls. Or maybe they love to color. Or maybe they get a hilarious look on their face when they watch their favorite TV show or movie. What does your little one love to do?
Charlie definitely likes to color lately! (I’m really bad at posting just one photo some days! Haha. Sometimes you need a few shots to show the whole story! And yes, these are from a shoot from a previous post, but no point doing a second coloring shoot within the same month! :p )
