How to Capture the Magic of Your Kids' Childhood with Your Phone

Updated: Jun 17, 2023



As a professional portrait photographer, I know how important it is to capture the magic of your child's childhood. After all, these are the years that will fly by in the blink of an eye. That's why I want to share my top tips for taking amazing photos of your kids with your phone.


I have two children, and when my first child was born, there were no cameras on phones. I was already studying photography, so I had a big expensive camera. But it was so awkward to take to the park or on trips. I was always worried about it getting lost or damaged.


Today, I do take lots of photos using my phone. I love that I can always have it with me, and that I don't have to worry about it getting damaged. But I still love to take professional photos of my kids, too. I think it's important to have both candid and posed photos of your children.


If you want to take great photos of your kids with your phone, here are a few tips:

  1. Use natural light.

Natural light is always the best for taking photos. It's soft and flattering, and it will help your photos look more professional.

  1. Get close.

Don't be afraid to get close to your kids when you're taking photos. This will help you capture their expressions and emotions in a more intimate way.

  1. Use good composition.

Pay attention to the composition of your photos. Make sure that your kids are in the center of the frame and that there's nothing distracting in the background.

  1. Edit your photos.

Once you've taken your photos, don't forget to edit them. There are many great photo editing apps available, and they can help you to improve your photos in a number of ways.

  1. Print your photos.

The best way to preserve your photos is to print them. This way, you can enjoy them for years to come.



Here are some common mistakes to avoid when taking photos of your kids with your phone:

  • Taking too many photos. It's easy to get carried away and take hundreds of photos of your kids. But remember, less is more. Focus on taking a few really great photos instead of a lot of mediocre ones.

  • Not getting close enough. As I mentioned earlier, it's important to get close to your kids when you're taking photos. This will help you capture their expressions and emotions in a more intimate way.

  • Not using natural light. Natural light is always the best for taking photos. If you can, try to take your photos outdoors in the daytime.

  • Not paying attention to composition. Composition is the way that you arrange the elements in your photo. Make sure that your kids are in the center of the frame and that there's nothing distracting in the background.

  • Not editing your photos. Once you've taken your photos, don't forget to edit them. There are many great photo editing apps available, and they can help you to improve your photos in a number of ways.

  • Not printing your photos. The best way to preserve your photos is to print them. This way, you can enjoy them for years to come.


So there you have it! My tips for capturing the magic of your child's childhood using your phone. I hope you found them helpful. And don't forget, even though phones are great for capturing the candid images of life, nothing beats a professional portrait of your family hanging on the wall for all to see.
