Letting your kids express themselves - guest blogger {Disney from Ruffles and Stuff}

8:48 AM Katie Evans 4 Comments

 I'm so happy to introduce our special guest today. Her name is Disney and she is the author of an awesome diy, lifestyle, craft blog called, Ruffles and Stuff. Her sweet and optimistic personality will immediately draw you in and then her inspiring ideas will keep you there. I was hooked from the very beginning. I've always loved her true to life photography of her sweet family. She is able to capture their life as it is.

We all hate taking pictures of our kids, don't we?

From the moment they are born the shutter is snapping: "Oh! Did you see how he moved his hand?", "Look! She's smeared her food all over, grab the camera!" and so it continues, from first steps to first dates and every single little moment in between.

Being a blogger's daughter, my little Paige is probably one of the most over-photographed children on the planet. Sometimes I think the only reason I blog at all is to capture that little face and share it with the world! (Which, frankly, is not always her cup of tea--that's when I bring out the dairy-free chocolate chips!) If I'm not shooting with my dslr, I've got my little iphone out, snapping shots of everything that happens.

At Katie's kind request, I've picked out a few of my favorite shots of Paige from the last year or so. And you know what I noticed about them? Not a single one is posed under my direction. I love to let Paige express herself in the photos I take, and you know what? They turn out a lot cuter that way. :o)















Thank you so much Katie for letting me share my photos with you all today! And rememeber: you're taking pictures of your kids-not of little models or wax sculptures! Cherish those kooky shots and crazy moments, you'll love looking back on them!

Have a wonderful day!
love,
Disney
