If you and and your baby or children are in a wonderful place, stop what you are doing, stand or sit still and simply focus on sensory inpressions. Guide your kids to be aware of the sounds around them, the light colours, movement and smells. Ask them to describe what they can see, hear, touch or even taste. Ask them to describe what they can see, hear, touch or even taste, they may teas you for being intense but they will find it rewarding all the same.
Choose a wishing tree. If there’s a particular tree your child likes, make it their wishing tree. They can touch it to make a wish. Or, it the tree is in your own garden, they can write wishes and stick them to it, or tie a ribbon around its trunk or branches as a symbol of a wish.
Make an autumn display of as many differently shaped and coloured leaves as your children can find. Arrange them in a vase or stick them on to paper or card to create a beautiful nature collage.
Make sure that you take photos of those moments as one of your life time treasures.
Obviously, you can book me, so I can photograph your baby, children and family to be remembered forever.
Go to Taronga Zoo! You don’t need to take the kids to Africa. Children are obsessive and love to pulse an enthusiasm. Whether it is birds, bugs, flowers, cars, trucks, or trains, take them out to Taronga Zoo to see what you can spot. Don’t forget to take your camera, binnacles, notebook and pencil.
Go dippy. Pond dipping is fun for all ages, but little ones need close supervision to avoid going for a dip themselves. You will require a fishing net and a plastic container, preferably shallow and flat bottoned. Put a little pond water in the bottom of the container, drag the net through the shallows at the edge of the pond, them tip its contents out into container and see what you can find. During the summer months, most ponds will yield many different bugs.
Visit a local pond in the springtime to try to find tadpoles. If you strike lucky, revisit the pond from time to time to watch them develop into froglets, then frogs. Children of all ages enjoy frog-spotting in the wild.
You can always hire me as your photographer so I can photograph you and your children when they are playing with beautiful animals in Sydney.
