It’s that time of year when sugar is free flowing and costumes are ever-present for lively bright subjects. Most kids LOVE to vamp in their costumes. Normally shy children will often be at ease when dressed up as someone else. So go ahead and ask them to “growl like a monster” or twirl like a princess or whatever costume related pose they can do – to get an extra oomph to your pics. Happy Halloween!
Kids birthday parties are fun and challenging at the same time. The fun part – lots of kids running around make for great photo opportunities – the challenging, because there is so much activity it’s sometimes overwhelming to figure out where to shoot beyond the classic blowing out the candles and opening of the presents shots. Some tips. Try the bounce house. Remember to brace yourself in the corner (you will be moving – a lot!) hold your camera securely and shoot with the widest depth of field and fastest shutter speed that your camera will allow. Don’t be afraid to crank up the ISO as high as you can go and see your those adorable little monkey’s hair and feet fly.
