5 Tips for Photographing Kids

Simplify the Background

Shooting with a vacant & simple background is great. A photo with clear background could guide the viewers to focus their attention on the kids. If your phone has built-in portrait mode; use it to get the blurred backgrounds, simplify a busy scene, and emphasize kids’ facial features, movements, and expressions.

If the surroundings are too messy, photograph standing kids from a low angle or have them sit on the ground and shoot from a high angle so you could get rid of the messy background.

Shoot the Looking Up Photo

I love photos with kids looking up. These photos warm my heart and bring tons of happiness to me. Stand, cuddle your kids and have them look up at you. Or simply have them sit on the floor or a chair so you’ll be looking down on them.

This is a good angle for taking a photograph and I like to call it the “daddy & mammy’s angle”. Your kids won’t stay little forever, therefore, the best option is to take as many photos as you can for keepsakes.

Photograph Close-Ups of Hands

Photographing close-ups are good. The kid’s hands, ears, and feet are valuable to capture. One way to photograph a close-up of a kid’s hand is against another person’s hand or an object that shows the actual size of your kid’s hand. We can know how small the kids’ hands are by comparison with the things around them when we look at these photos a few years later.

Imagine that after the kid grew up as an adult, you look at these photos together and you will say “I used to hold this small hand to the playground…” The photos record specific moments in time in an accurate way. It helps jot our memories when the time or event becomes fuzzy in our minds.

Capture Natural Interaction

When I was a child, I get bored easily if I need to do a group photo or a family photo. But after being a mom, every time my kids embrace their grandpa and grandma, capturing that intimate moment is so sweet and beautiful to me.

Photograph What You Feel

Sometimes we try to photograph what we think others might like so we have kids smile and tell them how to sit or stand. And sometimes we might even feel bad since we don’t take “good” photos. However, what makes photos precious is the images stir our emotions, feelings and touch our hearts after years.  So it would also be great if we just photograph what we feel. 

Artiv Photo Tiles

It means being true to yourself when you are together with kids. You could also photograph the moment when you feel they are annoying. Photograph what you find interesting or lovely. This will create relaxed pictures and beautiful memories you’re going to want to cherish for years.

What is Artiv Photo Tiles?


There are so many “photo tiles” out there on the market, how do you know which one is the best one to buy from? With so many companies, such as Freex Photo Tiles and Mtiles, are you sure you are getting the best value for your money?

Why choose Artiv Photo Tiles?

After multiple trial and error processes, we have finally figured out an affordable and high-quality product that we are proud to introduce into the market. Many photo tiles on the market are made with cheap styrofoam tiles that have exposed and unfinished foam on the sides.

Besides, for us to keep our photo tiles affordable for our users and future customers, it took us many years to finally come out with a perfect solution and product that has both smooth and solid sides.

Artiv Photo Tiles is not the first one to come out with photo tiles and will not be the last.

As you can see here Artiv Photo Tiles has over 5000+ reviews with an average of 4.8 stars. We are one of the few companies that continue to improve our products and services.

We did not improve our product for no reason, we did extended research and found out a lot of people who had bought photo tiles were unsatisfied with the unfinished and exposed foam sides. Therefore, we made the change.

However, to provide a better product to eliminate the problem with the sides, we had to suffer a cost increase within our production. But we did not pass down the cost increase to the users. We did not increase the price of our new and improved product. we have absorbed the cost as a company.

Artiv Photo Tiles is the only company that provides both smooth and solid photo tiles

As a result, we are proud to say that we are the only company that provides this unique product of re-stickable photo tiles with finished sides that are both smooth and solid. Moreover, our price stayed the same, just check out our website for more information: https://artivphototiles.com
