No one loves taking pictures more than parents. But the combination of complicated digital cameras with fast-moving kids means no one is more flummoxed by taking pictures, either. This easy-to-use manual offers parents the tools they need to make beautiful, lasting, and evocative memories. Author, photographer, and mom of three Jen Altman shares her keen eye for the honest moment in this treasure trove of helpful instructions and inspirational photos. From choosing a camera and learning the fundamentals of photography to setting up great kid-friendly shots and overcoming the challenges inherent in photographing little ones, Altman's warm prose and lovely images sweep aside preconceived notions and show readers how to capture the unique spirit and personality of every child.
