Point things out

Point things out

Skies, stars, trees, flowers, animals, buildings, people, views, colours, textures, effects,
sounds, sensations… Anything that moves or intrigues you.

Build a cairn in young garden or in a secret place in the park.
Gather together a small collection of white pebbles collect them when you notice them – and on each wonderful or momentous day (a day to mark with a white stone), add one stone to the cairm.

Stomp. Gather together lots of household objects that make a pleasing, percussive noise and jam with your children, making rhythms on whatever comes to hand, stamping your feet and dancing to the different beats you create.

Invent your own traditions. Develop your own traditions. Develop some unique rituals with your kids. You might let them eat some chocolate from their stockings before breakfast on Christmas mornings, have an annual midnight feast or pitch a tent in the garden from which to watch the stars on a summer’s birthday. Whatever they are, indulge in traditions that are magical for your children and that they will remember for the rest of lives.

Show your children your old photos, so they will understand what you looked like before.
It’s also great idea to do your family photos while they are still young as they grow up so fast.

Point out differences

Point out differences

Point out differences between things, such as different sorts of dogs, types of shops, varying landscapes or contrasting flowers. so that your young children start to observe and become interested in the diversity of the world around them.

Explore the senses, Make connections between different sexual experiences: sight, sound, taste, smell and touch. What colour do you think this music is? What sound banana make? What do you reckon blue smell of? Where older children might think you mad, younger ones are far more likely to accept such associations and try to offer answers.

Make associations between people and colours, sounds, shapes, fruits, drinks, landscapes anything. Sometime be the interviewer What sort of animal are you? What sort of shape are you? and at other times the interviewee. Older children will enjoy finding associations for all their friends. and then quizzing those friends to see if the associations tally.

When we photograph children, we always ask silly questions and make them answer and laugh.
That is how we capture those natural moments, so the children feel more comfortable in front of the camera, also. Please book me early if you are planing to have photo session with me.
