Be with your people. See what they see. Hear what they hear. Connect with each other.
A couple resources with more info on how to plan your photo-taking in advance:
Rachel Nielson, who hosts the 3 in 30: Takeaways for Moms podcast, recently did an episode on documenting your family without tormenting them. Really great advice from a professional photographer in there.
If you want some resources on how to take better photos so you don’t have to spend so much time trying to get the right shot, I highly recommend Snap Happy Mom’s photo tutorial booklets. She shares how to take better shots, even in less-than-ideal lighting conditions (think all those dark nights with candles or Christmas lights), so you can spend less time fiddling with your phone and more time being with your people.
And if you need a reminder of how often we stare at our phones when we think we’re actually connecting with our people, these comic are…harsh. Maybe a little over-the-top, but they’re not wrong either.
Enough phone stuff already, amiright?
