What are the Top 5 Reasons Parents Buy Them?

Inspired by late night TV lists, here are some handy ideas about photography props and Party Store fun to spice up your photos. You know you need some extra help when:

  1. 9 out of 10 shots of your children are a blur of long distance shots - they never slow down EVER and you never seem to catch up for a good photo.

  2. You have a very large picture collection of kid's ears - because there's always something to the left or right that's WAY more interesting than you and your camera (Unless you ARE looking for profile shots!)

  3. The camera you just pulled out has struck terror in his or her expressions!

  4. Your most precious picture-perfect moments are slanted, off-center and often out of focus - from juggling keys, whistles and other attention-getters while trying to simultaneously hold on to the camera and snap the pic.

  5. Still other precious moments end up looking like the top half of America's Most Wanted - GANGSTA FROWNS.

Time To Put Taking Photos on "Auto-pilot"

All kidding aside, you realize that there are a few challenges to overcome before you can consistently get the kind of top-quality images of your kids or family members you want without the trip to a studio and hoping you've caught your subjects in a good mood even if you do go.

And that's where the right photography game will come in.

Photography Props
Props have been designed for a variety of purposes since the advent of the camera. Some, such as simple costumes and backgrounds, mirrors and play items, all add ambiance to the photo.

Look around your house for a child's favorite hat or scarf. Stop in at your local all-purpose store (like Target, Wal-Mart, or the Ma and Pa down the road) or raid your closet for fun glasses, mustaches and hats. Playing dress up is a timeless way to make it fun to smile for the camera.
