Document Your Kids this Summer with our Summer Photo Challenge!

With Summer officially starting soon (yay!!!) I thought it would be fun to celebrate with a little Instagram photo challenge to help you document your kids this summer!

I've created 36 photo prompts, all with a summery vibe, and all with the goal of helping you take better photos of your kids (and maybe try out one or two new ways of photographing them too!) and document the season.

All YOU need to do is go out, capture them, then share them!

I’m a big believer in both shooting regularly to improve your photography AND of capturing our time with our kids, so this challenge should be a great way of doing both. Plus, it’s a great way for everyone to share their photos and get to know one another through the hashtag!

I’m in! When does it start?

We'll officially kick the challenge off on the official first day of summer, which is Friday June 21st.

The challenge will finish on Friday 26th July, so 36 days!

How do I take part?

If you'd like to take part, here's what to do!

Step One: Head on over to Instagram and follow @livesnaplove

If you wish, you can also join our Facebook group, the Live Snap Love Lounge! You don’t have to, but it would be nice to see you in there too :)

Step Two: Download the checklist below, print it out and get ready to start!

Step Three: Photograph an item on the list, and share your photos on Instagram with the hashtag #LiveSnapLoveSummer and @livesnaplove

That’s it! Remember to go to the hashtag #LiveSnapLoveSummer and like and comment on other photographer’s images too - let’s encourage each other!

I’ll also be sharing some of my fave photos from the challenge on MY Instagram feed, so check on @livesnaplove to see if you’ve been featured!

Can I share this with others?

I’d LOVE it if you could share! The more people who take part the merrier this will be.

Just share the list below with them and tell them what to do, or send them to this blog post!

One last important thing….

And finally, and this is IMPORTANT - remember that this challenge is open to everyone, of all abilities, , so don't feel that you're too much of a beginner to take part, or your photos aren't "good enough" to share. I WANT TO SEE YOUR PHOTOS!!!

Hopefully this mini-challenge will be a great way for everyone to capture their summer days with their kids, get out to practice with their camera, get creative, and most importantly, have fun!
