Outdoor kids photography Ideas

There is something therapeutic about a camera and nature. You can sit there for hours trying to capture the right picture, taking hundreds of shots. Then like magic, you find that perfect, simple setting and the pictures just start to role. 

Sometimes it can seem impossible to take a decent focused picture of my little munchkins. It ease up this challenge, my kids do better in a more natural setting. We took our time on this photo shot because I really wanted the natural wonder and expression to shin through, rather than a forced smile and pose. A simple setting with less distraction works best. Let them get the wiggles out beforehand so they are more focused.

1. A fun tree to bring out the adventure in their eyes.

2. Sitting beside a flowing stream while skipping rocks. 

3. An enchanting path of greener

Display Wedding Memories with a Shadow Box

I was looking for ways to display some of my things from my wedding. I wanted to use our invitation, program and some dried flowers from my bouquet. I found this deep shadow box at a home goods store for 15 bucks! Here's what I was able to design....

I used my pins from the bouquet to stabilize the stationary. I hot glued the dried flowers after careful dissembling of the bouquet and rearranging them. Key word here is


! These are delicate dried flowers that can snap easily!

Whats great about this idea is that you can use anything from any special event. If you want to use a bridal handkerchief, jewelery, special notes and photographs, the options are limitless! What are some of your ideas for keeping and displaying those memorable events?
