Step 1: You Need the Proper Equipment
• A decent camera. If your camera is just a step up from making cave drawings, you should probably invest in some equipment.
• Some basic skills that enable you to use that decent camera. If you don’t know your way around a camera, take the time to learn. You will be glad you did. There are some great online photography courses that are both affordable and convenient. You will never get these years back; so don’t put off improving your photography skills until you “have more time”. By the time you “have more time,” your kids will be grown. Are you really going to care as much about getting great photos of your balding, middle age children?
• Cute kids. It’s possible to take great photographs of not-so-cute kids, but it is much more challenging. Oh, well… Work with what you’ve got. It’s probably not worth going out and getting new kids, and you’re probably pretty fond of yours.
