Tips on kids photography: Snap happy!

What's tougher than taking photos of a kid?

Taking photos of two kids at the same time! It is almost mission impossible especially when doing it alone.

You'd never be sure of how it will turn out to be, and here's some advice:

1) Go with the flow. As much as you try to give instructions on where to stand, how to pose, it will rarely turn out the way you want it. Forget about top models. 

2) Bring snacks, lots of it. If they can be in theme and included in the photos, that's even better. Otherwise bring mini size snacks so that they won't be distracting in the photos. Don't try to take the snack away for a 'clean shot', it won't happen. You will end up with teary eyes and angry fits.

3) Say something funny like, 'Look at her mouth, she has got ice cream all over!' instead of 'Look into her eyes....' to achieve the pose you are striving for. Kids love exaggeration and funny actions/ remarks from you.

4) A brightly lit area would be great for photos, think outdoors, greenery or plain walls. Look closely in the vicinity as you may not need to travel far to get the right backdrop. Light, natural light always do wonders.

Of course, these are the photos that make it to the blog. Do not lose heart if you do not get any perfect photos. Often I love the photos not making the cut, as they share real emotions and sweet moments between the kids.

Minimalist fashion for kids

Black has always been the dominant color in my wardrobe. Working in the beauty industry for ten years, where the dress code is mostly black. Black is also the comfort color to go to on days I feel fat, and a safe color for an outing with the kids where spills and stains are inevitable.

New In Stores: Jaime King for Sapling Child

Who wouldn't want to give the best to their babies? From the day we hold our baby in our arms, we want to protect them and provide for them. Every precious moment is recorded on our phone cameras and it is a joy dressing them up.

Sapling Child teams up with Jaime King to launch this collection of organic cotton fashion line for babies and children.

This collection is inspired by Jaime King's childhood wonder - from the sprawling skies of Nebraska where she grew up to the seascape of California where she now lives and forms her son's James Knight's childhood.  

This Shine Bright t-shirt is available for 6-12M and 1Y, this grey t-shirt is the must have t-shirt this season and can be paired with endless options! 

Give the best present to your loved ones with the Galaxy Bear print bodysuits. Available from 0-3M to 1Y, in the softest organic cotton material. 

Love the halter bubble suit in this season's prints - soft, sweet Galaxy Bear in Pink, bright bold Peony Garden and refreshing feminine Lotus Flower. 

By choosing organic cotton, you are choosing one of the safest and most natural clothing options for your little one. Producing without chemicals throughout the entire production process, this helps prevent harmful chemicals from finding their way into your baby's bloodstream. The pure fibers allow your baby's skin to breathe naturally, and does not irritate sensitive skin or cause allergies.

The collection is available now at and Suntec City Tower 3 #02-712.
