How To: Take Great Photos of Pets and Kids

take great photos of kids and pets

If you’re like most people, you probably enjoy taking photos of the cutest parts of your life – your pets and kids. But sometimes, it’s a challenge to get really great pictures of these busy, moving objects. In fact, at times it can be really frustrating!

But thankfully, there are a few tips that can make it much easier to capture really great photos of pets and kids, and we’re sharing a couple with you today.

First, make it fun! No child or pet is going to be cooperative if picture-taking is a stressful, frustrating process. Be prepared with toys or rewards for the kids and treats for the pets. Picture-taking is definitely more fun if there’s a reward afterwards!

Another really important thing I’ve learned from personal experience is to take a lot of photos! The more photos you take, the better the odds of getting one that is really fabulous. Simply taking one or 2 most likely won’t give you the results you’re looking for, so keep snapping away and you’re more likely to capture that perfect moment!
