25 Best Everyday Moments to Capture of Your Child + Free Checklist

I didn’t really begin taking photos regularly until my oldest son was born at the end of 2005. It was then that I delved into photography and started snapping pictures…A LOT. During that time, I was still in the realm of just pointing the camera and shooting, but even so, I treasure those earlier photos just the same as I do any of the more recent ones.

As the years went on, I got better and better at composing a photo but still hadn’t entered the world of shooting manual. That journey didn’t start until my youngest son was born in December of 2012. But documenting my children’s every single day started at the very beginning of my motherhood journey.

I’ve always been partial to documentary photography, even before I really understood that that was a thing, something much different, in my eyes than snapshots and candids. Documenting their lives in such a way that projected emotion and heart was always the story I was trying to tell through my images.

After learning manual photography in early 2013, that world became something so much different than I ever dreamed and capturing the mundane of our days became my photography story.

Telling our story and documenting our lives has been my passion ever since and so I thought I would create this guide as to my top 25 everyday moments that you can capture of your child as well.

These 25 things make up a part of our mundane. The parts that we travel through each and every day without question. These moments, in my eyes, are even more important to document than so much of the rest. This is our real life story, and it’s worth capturing.
