Take better photos of your kids’ handmade clothes!

Ever since I started blogging, I have become more interested in photography. I want to be able to take great pictures of my kids and the things I make for them. Alida of Alida Makes just came out with an e-book called Style That Kid! that is all about doing just that.

When Alida offered me a chance to review her e-book, I knew I could trust what she had to say — because her photography is ah-MAY-zing! After a quick read of her book (yes!! you can read the entire book while sipping your morning coffee!), I put Alida’s suggestions to work.

The two sets of photos were taken in the same location (my backyard) and with the same adorable baby, but at different times of the day.

Because I don’t know a lot about photography, I can easily get bogged down with technical terms that I don’t always understand or don’t know how to apply to my real life picture taking. That wasn’t the case at all here – I felt like I could take what I read and use it right away to improve my photos.

Not only are Alida’s tips helpful for any blogger or etsy shop owner who wants to improve their photography, I know that the tricks I learned in the e-book will make a difference as I take every day pictures of my kids too.
