People always say that the days with your baby or toddler go by too quickly. You blink and they're all grown up! That's why it's so important to capture memories of those special moments while you can. And what's the best way to do that? By taking amazing photos! With a little bit of know-how, you can take photos that will make your friends and family jealous. So read on for some tips on how to take amazing photos of your little one.

How to take great photos of your baby or toddler

I asked our brand rep team their best tips for capturing amazing photos and here's what they said:

1) Indirect Natural Light

Outdoors in the shade, or indoors near window are the best places to capture the perfect photo.  Believe it or not, cloudy days are great for outdoor photos because you can take advantage of the natural light, without casting hard shadows.

2) Opt for a plain background

 

A cluttered background will distract from your amazing family. Instead, opt from plain carpet, a blank wall, or go outside and let nature create the perfect backdrop for your.  Don't have an open space to shoot? Flip your phone into portrait mode and blur out that background instead.

3) Keep your style simple

Let your smiling faces be the star of the show.  Dress in neutrals or pick one piece that pops and make that the focal point

4) Take advantage of the golden hour

For outside photos, keep an eye on when the sun sets in your area.  Take photos one hour before the sun goes down, and watch your photos glow.
