See eye to eye

See eye to eye

If your child has a fringe, trim it regularly to stop it flopping over their eyes.  A chiled who is constantly flicking back hair or looking at the world through a veil of fringe is far less likely to communicate properly and make eye contact.

Stop nail biting by painting your children’s nails with a foul tasting deterrent fluid available from pharmacies. This method also cures thumb suckers.

Dont’t tick them off. If your child develops a nervous tick, force yourself not to keep mentioning to them. Rather, take steps to minimise any stresses in their life. Get up earlier in the morning to avoid mad dash to school, stop nagging about things that don’t really matter, check that they are happy with their care arrangements and, above all, make time to be calm with your child. If, despite al your efforts, the tick persists  consult your doctor.

Display your family photos on the wall for your children to see, so you will have better family connection and it’s always nice to see how your beautiful kids grows.
Make sure you have at least one family portrait session with your photographer like myself. I am confident that it will be worth investment after all.

Break the mould

Break the mould

If you are feeling stuck in a rut, try being more adventurous with the choices that are already available to you. Even small changes can be refreshing. Try different foods, or drinks, read a new genre of novel  or bush walking or take some photos with your phone, or visit the places that you have never been to before. (Don’t forget to take your camera to snap!)

Be selective. Commit yourself to whatever you feel is really worthwhile, but beware of saying yes to every request that is made to you. You can not take other people kid’s to school and help in the school library and go on the school outing and undertake fund-raising and ferry a bunch of kids or babies home for tea and you then be fresh for your own children. Only undertake what you can achieve comfortably.

Relax with a drink. If you like to chill out with a drink in the evening, save it until after your children gone to bed. Early evening is a busy time with kids, and alcohol can make make it less easy to cope with conflicting.

Get the professional photographer to take some family photos at least once a year as your children grows so quickly. You don’t want to miss opportunity!

Share your enthusiasm

Share your enthusiasm

Involve your children in whatever you adore, be it making jewellery, visiting battlefields, walking for charity, baking birdwatching, dancing or DIY. Within reason, kids can get involved in most adult pastimes, and they can really benefit from taking in detailed information at an early age.

Trace connection between your child and a historical figure. A surprising number of children can claim to be related to someone they might learn about in school, so it’s well worth delving into your family story. If you can’t find any direct connections, seek out more oblique ones, a great-grandfather who once met Churchill or Roosevelt, a distant cousin who was friends with Sultan of Zanzibar, a great-great-great grandmother who was sympathetic to the suffragette movement.

Allow your children to see and touch the things that are magical to you and your family: a lock of hair from a grandmother, an old fashioned fairy book, a tiny gold charm or old photos of your family. Tell storeys to bring these objects to life in their imagination.

I personally believe that creative mind comes from their early age.  Let them imagine, create, draw,  picture themselves to find out what they will be good at in the future.

Make Potions

Save some little plastic bottles and help your kids to gather the ingredients for potions:
pleasant ones (mixture of bathroom toiletries) weird ones (strange food combinations) and downright yucky ones(earth, paint, milk, washing-up water..anything) Stick around while they make them to check that they don’t) wreck your home in the process get their hands on anything dangerous and actually drink them. It’s a lot of fun for kids to make up positions and invent the magical effects they cause.

Make believe. Take your kids to a palace and all of your pretend that you are royal, go to a museum and strike the poses of the statues, lie with your hands over your chest and imagine yourselves to be ancient Egyptian mummies, drama and art and out of yourself.

Improve scenrios. Kids love simple acting exercises. A couple of children might try having a conversation in which each wants to have the last word, each is trying to impress the other or each in frightened of the other. Suggest subjects and situations that are of particular interest to your children and let them invent their own improvisations.

We enjoy photograph children when they are playing at the park, a lot of our photos on our website are done at the park in Sydney. We love photographing kids as natural as possible!

Love the noise

Love the noise

Encourage your children in their early attempts to play an instrument. Avoid wincing and covering your ears. If you are positive, you should be rewarded with rapid improvement and sooner or later, some tolerable music.

Make practice easy by creating a music corner where the instruments is readily available (preferably out of its case), with a clutter free area for scores and equipment a music stand and in needed. A comfortable seat, adjustable to the correct heights. A short practice daily, as a regular time is considered by most music teachers to be the best routine.

Leave the masses of time to get to a concert or show in which your child is performing, don’t make a big deal of the event. Children quickly pick up parental tension and anxiety. Pre-performance nerves.

Remember to check that any instruments you hire or borrow are adequately nerves.

Be a beginners together. Why not start a class or course at the same time as your kids so you can lear alongside them?

Teenagers in particular can benefit from having their parents on a level playing field, and it can be tremendously bonding to discover a new shared interest.

Give them your camera to see how your kids snap photos, too! They might be good at taking photos in the future!

Move On

Move On

Young children develop very fast. A toy that was fascinating a month ago may be of little interest now, so keep abreast of your child’s curiosity and developing intellect by presenting them with fresh challenges and activities.

You needn’t spend a fortune toy liberties, charity shops and imaginative activities won’t  break the bank.

For your older children, give advice not your opinion.

Answer their questions about sex straightforwardly and candidly, without offering more information than you think they need to know at their age and stage.

Be liberal enough that your children don’t need to lie to you. Allow them to share with you the inevitable milestones of growing up: trying a little alcohol first kiss, a youthful adventure. It’s safer to be in the know than out of touch.

Don’t jump to conclusions. If you disapprove of something your child does, try not to aggrandise it with your outrage. One drink does not make an alcoholic, nor one cigarette a smoker. Better to have a mature discussion about health than a slanging match about your fears for the future.

Make sure you keep the record how they grow up by photos. They grow up very fast.
Having beautiful photos for your children are investment. Please book Katsu for your photo session.

Avert Tantrums

Avert Tantrums with distractions “Look at those lovely flowers” ” I think that I saw Poppy the cat outside the window” ” Can you spot a red car?” ” What would you like for your birthday?” ” it does not always work but its worth a go.

Bin flip flops. They look cute on young kids but are very difficult for children to run and tackle stairs in. Properly fitted sandals, with backs are infinitely preferable and far safer.

Insist upon plates. Young children can be fantastically messy eaters. From an early age, train them not to wander about while eating. To eat over a plate or surface and to be mindful of how much mess they are making.

Dress the part. Left to their own devices, most younger children would ice-skate in swimming costume and play tennis in winter coats without noticing. Dressing appropriately is not high on a kids list of priorities so lay down the law.

If you don’t know what your kids to wear on the day of photo shoot, please let us know as we have a professional stylist, so he can style you the way you want just like some magazine photo shoot.
Your kids will feel very special on the day.

Use metaphors

Use metaphors and similes

The capacity to make connections between things is the basis of imagination, so share with your kids any associations that occur to you:  Those parachutes look like jellyfish in the sky. The water coming out of the tap looks plaited just like your hair is now. Look at your shadow – your are a giant statue!

Work out the meaning of what your kids say. Young children’s speech can be very disjointed. Often kids burble on about seemingly unconnected things and it;s all too easy not to hear.
If you do listen really hard, you will be surprised by now much sense can be constructed from the kaleidoscope of infant speech.

Quash pester power. If all else fails, steer clear of pester hot spots. Choose the supermarket that doesn’t sell toys over the one that does, take a different route to avoid the sweet shop of leave your partner to babysit while you shop alone in the evenings. What the eye does not see, the infant does not hanker for.

For young children photo shoot, I always recommend to be done in locations such as the parks or beaches rather than studio, so the infant feel more comfortable in the environment.

Newborn Baby Tips – Outdoors

Newborn Baby Tips – Outdoors

Keep a packed changing bag at the front door so that you can go out with the baby at short notice.
Bags that are like big sacks aren’t ideal as you have to rummage about in them every time you change your baby. Rather, choose bags with compartments – ideally with see-through pockets, like make-up artists’ bags – so that what you need it readily to hand.

Have a pop-up cot for travels and visits. A pop-up cot is small, like a carrycot. Made of flimsy nylon on a white frame, it twists flat, then literally pops into thee dimensions when taken out of its bag.
If you take it with you when you are out and about, you can settle your baby down almost anywhere for s comfortable, flat on the back sleep.

Have baby “stops”. In each of the rooms you use most frequently, have a soft, safe place where you can lie or sit your baby down out of harm’s way.

Make a soft around a wobbly baby who’s just learning to sit up. Pack pillows, quilts and the like snugly around their bottoms so that any tumbles will be cushioned. Stick around to avert any danger out of harm’s way.

Hope this article was helpful.
