Review: Your Family in Pictures

Your Family in Pictures: The Parents' Guide to Photographing Holidays, Family Portraits, and Everyday Life


About the book:

For parents (especially moms) with little to no photography experience who want to capture better portraits and photos of their families using any camera.

What parent doesn’t want to capture the perfectly imperfect joy of family life through photos? From holidays and vacations to portraits and shared moments, celebrated photographer (and mom) Me Ra Koh not only helps moms and dads take better photos, but inspires them to discover photography as a way to connect with, cherish, and celebrate their family. With forty beautiful “photo recipes” anyone can follow—with any camera—preserving your family’s story has never been easier!

My Review:

I was super excited to see this book on the list of book to review this time around and I definitely jumped at the chance to review it. I am always looking for advice on how to photographer my kiddo and this book definitely helps in that area. I am no photographer so anything who can help out an average joe with a camera is always a plus to me since I do not always have the time or quite frankly the cash to pay a professional and who am I kidding some days I just need to take photos of my amazing little person! I have no experience with her first two books but if this is the only one you pick up you're not missing out on much from what I can tell because I didn't even know there were others! This book def gives great instructions on what and how to do it and reminders to take pics of everyday life because it does go so quickly! I would definitely recommend this book to others.

**I recieved this book from the publisher free for my honest opinions.**

Review: Let There Be Light

Let There Be Light

This is a board book for children and yes it is beautifully illustrated and of course the story is wonderful it just wasn't a book my son actually enjoyed. Even though the illustrations are beautiful they weren't necessarily geared towards children. It will not be a book that we get a lot of use out and more than likely will not keep in our collection because by the time he appreciates the illustrations he'll have outgrown the board book stage. I am sure there are families out there that truly love and enjoy this book but it just wasn't a fit for our home.
