My top 3 tips for taking pictures of my children

Have you heard of Zulily? Really?…..Where have you been?

Only kidding,
I came across the site via a recommendation from a friend and I have loved the site since much to the disgust of my purse and bank balance.

The site offers daily deals of up to 90% off designer items and leading brands for Mums, kids, babies and for your home too.  The flash sales last around 3 days and are varied and different every day – you never know what you may find and far too often something catches my eye – I’ve recently brought Regatta all in one fleece suits for both kids and Harry’s pirate bunting and Pirate bookends were both purchased through this site.

Why am I telling you this?
Because they are hosting two competitions at the moment – one for everyone to enter and one for Bloggers.

Everyone can enter the Instagram biggest grin competition by following the instructions here (link removed as the competition closed).  The prize is £100 Zulily vouchers, storage boxes from Feather and Black and a Juicy Couture clutch bag.

The Bloggers competition details can be found here.
You need to share your top 3 tips for taking photo’s of your children.

Here are my tips for my entry for a chance to win £100 vouchers:

  1. Take natural unposed shots.  If I tell Emmy I’m taking her picture she will either hide or pull the silliest cheesy grin ever spoiling the shot, so I hide the camera and snap away unannounced
  2. Take a few of the same pictures, this way if you have 5 or 6 of the same shot the chances are 1 or 2 of them will be unblurred and in focus.
  3. Play around with different lighting effects – most smart phones have this option or Instagram is good for instantly changing the look of you photo.

Here is my favourite photo taken by myself this week:
