100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas {Day 3: Taking Photos Outside}

I LOVE being a mom, and my two sweet kids are a blessing to me every day! When my second was born, it took us a while to get used to the new dynamic, and my scrapbooking was pretty much put on hold (as were a lot of other things). Anyway, it’s really fun for me as I’m getting caught up, because I’m scrapbooking photos from this year as well as photos from the same time of year in previous years. It is AMAZING how much the kids change in just one year! Makes me really want to cherish every moment with them even more :).

I realize that Mother’s Day photos are more springy than summery – but the scrapbooking tips I want to share with you today are about taking photos outside – perfect for summertime :)!

Tips for Taking Photos Outside:

  • The best light is actually not in bright sunshine, as you might expect! The bright light tends to create harsh shadows and makes you squint too much. For softer light, try sitting in the shade, like I did with my kids for our Mother’s Day photo.
  • Taking photos on a cloudy/overcast day also works – just try to sit near something bright and colorful to counter the dull colors, like in our photo in a huge blue chair (above).
  • If you plan on sitting on the ground, bring along a blanket or quilt – it’s handy for keeping clean and comfortable – plus it adds extra sweetness :). I found mine at a yard sale :)!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Oh boy, I can finally share what I made for my mom and mother-in-law!
