One of my hopes for 2015 is to get better at using my camera. At the moment, I fiddle a bit then just hope for the best. My kids aren’t the best at posing so there isn’t much time for me to change settings. My aim over the next few weeks is to get myself outside on my own and play around till I work out what I’m doing.
Fingers crossed by the end of the year you’ll see a big improvement in my photography skills.
If anyone has any tips for me, they’d be most appreciated.
Beautiful captures. Your camera work looks great to me, but then again, I’m not an expert either. I love the one of your little girl that’s a close up with her fluffy white hat on. These are great photos. Look forward to seeing more as the year goes on 🙂
Awesome photos of your littles ones. I love this project and so glad they are keeping it going. Its great to see after a whole year last year how much our kids grow and change even throughout the weeks. Great captures here. #livingarrows
They are all SO CUTE Emma! Honesty the more photos you take the better you get, it’s mostly a practice thing 🙂
If you fancy it we could come over your way one weekend, Tanya keeps telling me about ‘the ponds’ and that we should all go – photo walk maybe? x
You Baby Me Mummy
Such gorgeous children and lovely photo’s #LivingArrows x
These are gorgeous pictures! You definitely have a good eye, the one with your daughter lying in the shadows is great. Do you have an SLR camera? One thing you can do to really polish your photos is shoot in RAW format (rather than jpeg) which gives you great freedom to alter the images after you have shot them (changing exposure, warmth, saturation etc.) Feel free to look me up if that needs explaining!
Thank you, I’ll try that!
Beautiful photos. I especially like the 3rd one x
I think these are all beautiful photos Em, especially the one of H! xx
You’re doing a great job at photographing the children these pics are brilliant! X
sarah @ let them be small
these are great pics – the third is my fave. Good luck learning to use the camera to a more advance level x
Beautiful pictures! I try to do this every year and last year i done Siblings. This year will be Living arrows too!
All pics are great but I espeacialy love the 3rd one down! Her little face is so cute!

Lovely photos, your children are beautiful! My tip would be to create a Pinterest board and pin photos that you really like, see what you’re drawn to and incorporate that in your own photos x

You have taken some lovely pictures! I too would love a better camera, as I tend to rely on my phone – it’s just always there with me! Sim x
I think they’re beautiful photos – they all have such happy smiles! I’m not sure I’m in any position to start giving photography tips but one thing I’m going to be doing this year is keeping a better track of my camera settings to see what I’m using the most and then I’ll know what I wish I’d tweaked and how I want to leave my camera set up so that when I reach for it to grab a shot I’ve got half a chance of getting it – time will tell if it works!
I think you’ve got some lovely photos there – and the one of her looking straight into the camera is adorable.
I think you are doing a pretty good job already Emma. Just keep on doing what you are doing, and take lots and lots and lots of pictures, you will notice an improvement in no time! Unless you are like me and far too critical over your own shots anyway! 😀
I think you are doing a great job – they are gorgeous shots of beautiful children.
I agree, they are all beautiful photos. Like you. I want to get off auto more and use the camera more but I think if the light is right, you can take some gorgeous shots on auto #livingarrows
