What does your family do for fun?
There are lots of things we need to do as a family, lots of obligations and things that we have committed to doing. Many of those things we love (swimming, football, etc) and many we’d rather do without (laundry, dishes, homework) and there are many other things that we do as a family just for fun. These are many of the things that I want the kids to remember when they are grown and have families of their own. I want them to remember that we did things together.
That we enjoy life together.
In these photos above there are things skiing and boating and going to movies (we do that as a family a lot and the kids also do a lot of that with their grandfather). I also included things like drawing and sidewalk chalk and I couldn’t forget our trips to Ikea. It may seem silly to snap a photo as you’re sitting in a movie theater waiting for it to start, but if you’re doing something as a family for fun – grab a photo!
Some opportunities to capture the ways that your family has fun with your camera:
There are lots of things that you could be taking photos of as your family just enjoys having time “off”. Try and think of creative ways to showcase these activities and remember to get shots of the overall activity as well as detail shots and don’t forget to shoot from different angles and perspectives…and most importantly – have fun!!
