Real Life Family Photography is a guide to capturing love and joy through the ages and stages of your children's lives.
The book is aimed at everyday people who want to be able to take fantastic images of their kids growing up, so should be accessible to everyone.
Author Amy Drucker specialises in documentary portraits and creative lifestyle photos, so she is the ideal guide for this book.
The book begins with the basics of photography including the fundamental difference between snapshots and photographs, the rules and fundamental photographic concepts.
After the initial chapter on the basics, the book moves through different stages in a kid's life, right from the baby stage through teenagers and group family photos.
Almost a journey through the life of any child, the book guides you through the different stages, interests and loves a child will have and how you can take advantage of even the most mundane situation to take great images. Even things like feeding time and tantrums can yield great opportunities for photos, and reconising this is key to capturing great candid photos of your loved ones that would otherwise be missed.
Overall, this book is an easy to follow guide that will be useful to anyone that wants to create better images of their kids on the fly. With just a little knowledge, you can transform your images, and this book will show you how.
