Timeless Photos

You don’t have to be a professional to capture beautiful photographs that you will cherish for a lifetime. This article called “Do-it-yourself Photo Shoots”, from Creating Keepsakes, illustrates 5 simple steps to improving your skills.

In Dad's Arms

I took the above photo when my son was just one week old.  For my own little do-it-yourself photo shoot I hung a piece of black fabric near a window to take advantage of the indirect natural light it offered. I planned ahead and set up the shot so that when my baby fell asleep I was ready to start snapping away. I decided to zoom in very close to the baby. Even though it meant cropping most of my hubby out of the shot, it was OK, because  I already had some regular photos of my husband and son together. I made sure to turn off the flash, so that there would be no harsh shadows. I took many photos, and luckily I ended up with one I really like!
