Winter Photo Mojo

Updated: May 8, 2018

Winter is a magical time of year. The earth is blanketed in snow. The temperatures are brisk. It's a great time to get outside and make some memories. So, dress warm, grab your camera, and take you children outdoors for a winter adventure.

You don't have to travel any farther than your back yard or local park to get great photos of you children enjoying winter activities. Most great photos happen when kids are allowed to be kids. The freedom to run, jump, sled, throw snowballs, build a snowman all of these activities lend themselves to great memories and great photos.

Here are a few basic tips for taking beautiful and creative winter photos:

1) Capture Action....

One way to create a strong and compelling photograph is to show movement. This shouldn't be too hard since kids are notorious for always being on the go. Take photos of them sledding or making snow angels. Let them throw a snowball or two at you (unless they are like my boys and have the tendency to hit my smack dab in the face at lightening fast speeds).
