Photography is all about capturing the things, places and people you love. While most parents are snap-happy when it comes to their littles, they often aren’t aware of all the possibilities. There is no shortage of inspiration out there for creatively capturing the beauty in your babes. Below, we’ve teamed up with Mingo Kids to share 9 great photo ideas for shots of your kids. No need to be a pro, or even have a fancy DSLR, just a smartphone will do! We hope you find them as helpful as we do!

1) “From where your kid stands”
A photo of their little feet, because you definitely don’t want to forget them
2) A capture of your little in the big city
… or wherever home might be
3) Change directions
And get a snap of the kids while they’re in ‘the play zone’ and not paying attention
4) Get creative with your framing and capture elements
This makes for a stunning visual, especially if there is a good mix of textures
5) Get ‘em while they’re silly
6) Get ‘em on a slow morning
7) Capture their little hands to show scale
They just grow-up so fast!
8) A pic of their outfit of the moment
You may not get to keep all of their adorable clothes, but here’s an idea to commemorate
9) Bird’s eye view
And remember the key to any good photo: use natural light as much as possible!
Now you have all the fixins for a magazine-style photo book, like this one.
