Getting my little ones (aged 1 and 3 ) to stay still for photos is big challenge.
I always find the best way to get good shots is to take them (with toys/ice-creams/bribes) into the nice/interesting light and leave them to it.
Alice's room gets the sun in the afternoons and I thought we'd try something a little different this week.
It's actually a great tip I picked up from a photographer based in the US called Kimberly Milano who I studied with recently.
She often gets her young children to draw on the windows with washable colouring pens.
As you can imagine, Alice was definitely keen on this idea! Even cleaning the window afterwards got the thumbs up as a fun activity!
So these pictures are from our 'colouring the windows with pens' activity (Crayola Washables are a safe bet).
These were shot with my digital SLR and a 35mm fixed lens. This is a great activity to try photographing even with your camera phone.
