Ten Photography Tips for Photographing Kids

"Look this way, Miss Priss."
I can still hear daddy calling those words out to me as he'd click his camera.
My dad was always taking photos of us when I was growing up.
Birthdays...
ripping into presents at Christmas...
my sister and I playing in a summer rain with our pink and blue umbrellas...
sitting in our mother's lap on the blue floral couch they used to own...
riding a bike for the first time...
hunting eggs at Easter...
running beneath the Georgia pines...
visiting grandparents...
giggles between sisters...
smiles and joy!

He captured it all! Mama would take some pictures too. Although she left most of the family picture-taking up to my dad, she had once been a writer and photographer for a newspaper.

I guess it was inevitable that I'd grow to love taking photos too...
That I'd relish opportunities to take and share photos that tell the story of my little family and our lives.

Do you also enjoy capturing those precious memories on camera?
I've shared a few tips of trade I've picked up along the way on the Knoxville Moms Blog...

Two Easy Ways to Sew Pillows


I love to keep our home beautifully decorated, but since we are a family on five on one income, our budget calls for creative ways to accomplish this. Toss pillows are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to add interest and color to an area and to freshen up a room's decor. Sewing your own toss pillows is even better because you can choose the style, fabric, and size that you want. It's also less expensive than buying pillows from the store especially when you get creative with the materials like I did for this first pair of pillows...
