I love learning how different mother fashionistas take outfit photos of themselves while their children are around, don’t you? There are some new mamas out there that I follow that either include their babies in the shots as a mother and daughter/son type of photo shoot, or there are the mamas that have their babies and kids off to the side entertaining themselves or napping while the tripod and clicker are set up and at it or the hubby is taking the shots. Still there are some bloggers that don’t reveal their secret but you know they are a mommy but take gorgeous outfit shots.
While I believe my best photo shoots are alone with my hubby (when we go on dates) this is not very often so in order to get outfit photo shots for my blog the kids are often times around and so today I am going to reveal to you how my hubby manages to take photos of me while we have our kids near by.
Here is a list of what we do if photos are taken outside and in the public areas/home:
– shoot photos outside our house during nap time
-shoot photos outside of department stores while kids are contained in a grocery cart
– kids are running around near by (these end up the worst shots as the kids are not contained so the photos are normally rushed and blurred with no real focus)
– my husband and I will leave our kids in the van with the windows or doors open and we are but 2 to 3 feet away from the van but watching them while we shoot.
– have family members watch the children for a few minutes if we happen to have friends near by.
-hubby watches kids while family members we are visiting take photos, etc.
For todays particular post, the twins are contained in a grocery cart and Nevaeh and Alexander are running around. You can obviously see them in these photos haha! keeping it real!
See what did I tell ya! Photobomb moment!
