Inspire me Friday’s- Playing at the park

I figured since Nicole shared a great tutorial on photographing your kids, that I would do a photo share of my daughter at the park from this past week. I love taking pictures outdoors, more so than indoors :) This share is a little pic heavy. I loved how Nicole shared her advice on how she photographs kids. You can read the tutorial here. I know when I go on photo shoots, I always prep the parents by telling them that kids will be kids and to PLEASE not stress. Let them have fun. This is how we capture those priceless memories anyways :) I will always bring along a fun finger puppet for small kids and keep it on my finger if I want to get them to look over at the camera. Bubbles always work like a charm! They also look great in pictures. Try to sing and play with them. It relaxes them. When I am photographing my daughter, I love to capture her while she is playing. She is always being so silly. Tomorrow I will post up my Photo Share Linky and everyone can link up their images this week! Please try to share new images that you took of your children :)

My 50 mm is by far my favorite lens, so you will see me using it a lot. I kept my ISO at 100 most of the time due to the great lighting :) I shot 2.0 with most of these images and tried to keep a really fast shutter speed since she was running around playing and kids are fast!
