“Run run! Get ready!!” My kids screamed as the timer on the camera counted down from 10.
“HURRY!” My oldest daughter screams. My son giggles alongside her as they strike up a silly face.
My EOS M50 begins a rapid beeping sound and flashes a yellow light before snapping this picture:
We try again. More screaming and laughing ensuing.
Rinse and repeat until we all eventually cooperate and get these gems.
At arm’s-length I was able to snap some pretty sweet selfies in auto-mode.
The goal wasn’t to get the most perfectly posed flawless pictures, but snapshots we can look back at and cherish.
Next I did something I want to push myself to do annually… And I highly recommend doing this at least once. You know those questionnaires our kids fill out around Mother’s Day? I love reading the silly things my kids answer about me. But you know what’s even better? Hearing them!
I set my EOS M50 camera up on my mini tripod and rattled off a series of Mother’s Dat interview questions. Lee Lee even got in on a few.
So this May make it a goal to get in the picture, and record some video moments with your little ones too. I promise you’ll thank me later. And if you want to use the same questions we used you can download our free Mother’s Day Questions printable here.
Happy Mother’s May!
