Another lesson early in the week for you, this time, 7 tea party photo tips! I'm excited that this post is a part of my adventures with toddlers series on Me Ra Koh's blog. When you have little ones, getting out of the house is a BIG adventure. While I love to capture those adventures, I don't want to forget about all of the little adventures we had around the house too. So on a rainy afternoon while stuck inside, I decided that a tea party would be the perfect adventure for Milo and Sawyer!
Typically their tea set is downstairs by their play kitchen. However, there isn’t the best lighting by the play kitchen, nor is there a table for them to set up at.
Be Intentional with Your Set Up.
I cleared off their table upstairs that is usually used for crafts and reading. I made sure the table was by a nice window to provide me with ample natural light for our little tea party. Once I was set up, I got my camera settings ready and then called the kids over. By moving the tea set to another location, I not only have set myself up for photo success, I have helped spark their interest in a toy they’ve had for a while.
