2 Mistakes We All Make When Taking Photos
Updated: Jan 20
How to save your time and energy, plus an exciting announcement!
Have you ever pulled up your camera roll to post a photo and been slammed with twenty photos that look exactly the same?
Or maybe there’s just a blurry photo of your grumpy kid, taken before you gave up all together?
Um… not me 😬
Who am I kidding? I’ve been there. I go there frequently. But I promise, it doesn't have to be like this!
The first mistake is lacking intention. Instead, we snap like crazy and hope for the best. This is a colossal waste of time. We’re so busy taking photos that we aren’t present to enjoy the moment we want to capture.
As a recovering over-snapper, I started making the second mistake-lacking authenticity. Does this situation sound familiar?
“Let’s take a quick photo! Girls just come together, give me a big smile, no a real smile, Jessie stay still, GEOOOOORGIA look here bubba, oh come on Kaylee please just quickly and then we can move on… ugh fine. Forget about it.”
Yeah, not my proudest moment. I was trying to be quick, but I had a clear idea of what I wanted and would get disappointed and frustrated when it wasn’t happening. This is a draining situation for everyone involved, and the photos are rarely any good.
So, how do we capture a photo without ruining the moment? The sweet spot is somewhere in the middle. A little time, a little energy. Being intentional and authentic. Sounds great, right?
I’ve got you covered!
I’m hosting a workshop for Mums just like you, who want to start taking better photos without wasting your limited time and energy. After this workshop, you’ll be able to capture your memories and enjoy the moment! No fancy camera needed!
We’ll be covering:

P.S. You don’t need a fancy camera, just your phone!
P.P.S. I know how hard it can be to find a babysitter, so children are totally welcome (we’ll have extra hands to help with kids!)
