5 Childhood Moments Worth Capturing

There are certain moments in our children’s everyday that we might overlook when it comes to photographing them. It’s easy to pull out the camera for the big events or special milestones, but what about those precious daily moments?

Here are five sweet and simple moments in your child’s day that deserve a little extra attention with your camera just this once. We take you from sunrise to sunset for a look at your child’s full day in five touching photos.

You know that sleepy eyed look? The adorable bed-head? The way they smile when you greet them in the morning? Capture that precious moment by bringing your camera with you when you get your little one out of bed in the morning. Older children may be less than thrilled, which may still make for a really cute photo. “Mom! Ugh!”

2. Enjoying breakfast

The most important meal of the day is often approached in a hurry as we fly around the house to get out the door on time. Take a moment to pause, enjoy, and capture your kids devouring their favorite breakfast. Better yet, keep them in their pjs with their messy morning hair for the picture!

3. Deep in thought with an activity

Building a tower of blocks, coloring with concentration, paging through a book, reaching for a rattle or gnawing on a teething toy – these activities are enriching to our children. They learn so much through play and when they’re engrossed in their activity they’re really learning new skills! Capture them in the flow of playtime – the best part of childhood.

4. Fresh out of the bath

Capture the sweet moment of the bedtime routine when the kids are fresh and clean and bundled up in towels. Messy wet hair and happy faces, wrinkly toes, and naked booties running down the hallway are all great details to photograph for the memory book!

5. A Tender moment

These sweet loving moments that we have every day with our kids are not always captured because we are too busy being in the moment! While that is a good thing, get out your camera and capture some sweet moments just this once. You’ll look back on them with joy and cherish them forever.

Before you begin, here’s a tip! Instead of trying to get them all in a day, try making it a week long project and focus on one each day. Keep the shots candid. No posing! Capture those real moments as they happen.
