Want to get better and more creative snaps of your kids this year? We have just the photography cheat sheet and challenge for you!
Another year (another decade, if you wish), another fresh opportunity to challenge ourselves to take on more photography projects. Today’s photography cheat sheet/challenge is especially for parents looking for more creative ways and ideas for photographing their kids this year. There are more than enough prompts for you to try this year, so we’re sure it will keep you and the little ones busy!
Children are certainly a joy to photograph, but there are times when it may be a bit of a challenge. Parents can find themselves out of ideas to make photoshoots with their kids more unique, fun, and full of personality. It’s understandable why parents can sometimes feel pressured when it comes to photos of their kids — they’re only kids once! With the photo assignments below, suggested by children’s photographer Jamie Moore, we hope you’ll have some great ideas that get you planning for your shoots with the adorable little ones throughout the year.
The best part about Moore’s list of 75 photo assignments is that it covers all ages. Many of them can also be done with siblings, as creative ways to document important milestones, heartwarming captures of everyday life, and beautiful family photos during events and special occasions. That said, you can keep this list going year after year. Feel free to make variations to match the scene or occasion, and even the personality of the kids!
If you occasionally dabble in photographing children and family portraits, the photo assignment list should also come handy when you need some extra ideas for your shoot.
As a bonus, we also suggest checking out this family portrait photography cheat sheet for more tips on making the most out of your shoot.
