Many years from now, do you want to remember what your children had in their room when they were five? While it’s important to shoot their portraits, don’t forget to shoot other details of their growing up days. Their favorite toys, their drawings (scan them too), their art work, things they do, things they have, etc. are some subjects you can shoot.
I shot these one late night after work in my daughter’s room while she was sleeping. I wanted to photograph some of the details she had in her room that day. I used a macro lens as I wanted to go in close, shot the details and blurred the background to emphasize the subjects. But you can shoot these with almost any lens you have or any camera you have. The most important thing is to be able to keep the memories in the form of photographs. So, have fun and keep shooting.
