I blog about my two boys Dustyn who is 6 and Carsyn who is 3. Carsyn has MIHV Holoprosencephaly and Cerebral Palsy. I take a ton of photos of them and everything around me.

Do you have any good tips for teaching children about photography?

I gave Dustyn one of my old cameras, and he loves taking photos with it. I kind of let him do his own thing. He seems to enjoy it more.

Where is your favorite place to take photographs?

I love taking photos at a local park. There are so many different looks you can get there. Plus the kids can take a break and play when needed.

What's a creative tip for taking good photographs of children?

I love to have a lens buddy that squeaks on my camera because it usaully gets them to look at the camera. I also change my approach depending on the child. If they are chatty I will chat with them about what they like to do. If they are quiet I just back up and take photos from afar.
