Photo a day – May 8

Capture the environment too.

My tip for today is:

Sometimes I like to get in close, but other times it’s so great to capture the whole environment that the kiddo is in. It completes the memory, tells the story more fully. To remember what our kids’ rooms looked like is a sweet memory as well. Capture your kiddo in their element. My older boy has always been a reader. Usually, he reads every night before bed, but during this “shelter in place” season, there’s been a lot of extra reading going on even during the day.
