In last week’s Kid Style post, I mentioned how much trouble I’m having with taking photos in Manual mode. Either it’s just too sunny outside and I have trouble with shadows or partial shading, or there’s just not enough light, then I’m stuck with blur. And trying to get toddlers to pose for pictures, isn’t exactly an easy task.
This past Saturday, I could have captured some awesome pictures of the girls. You know the ones were they are standing in the perfect spot with the perfect pose and great facial expressions? Yeah, those! And then I realized I completely forgot to adjust my camera settings and was clicking away without ever once reviewing the pics in the viewfinder, only to find that my settings were all screwed up and the ‘kodak moments’ were either too underexposed or too blurry to salvage. Oh, I’m still kicking myself in the arse for that one! But I did manage to get a few decent ones to use in this post.

On Isabel- Top and Leggings: Tea Collection | Shoes: Cynthia Rowley, TJ Maxx
But regardless of the quality of the pics, aren’t their outfits adorable? I <3 the Tea Collection.
Anyone have any tips for photographing toddlers? I sure could use some!
