# 2: Light it up
Lighting is key to photographs. If it's dark, use a tripod (ahem, again the one above is great). A second option? Turn on some lights. If you're still looking for a little bit of assistance below are a two great options we use (for personal and business situations).
#3: Capture emotion
Making cookies with the kids? Giving mom a special gift that you know will bring her to tears? Be ready to capture it. We're not saying stay connected to your camera 24/7 to capture everything, but anticipating those special moments of laughs or tears make for the best images.
#4 Change your perspective
Get eye level with you little ones. Shoot over the should of your kids. Lurk around the tree or photograph through a window. Peek through the crack of their bedroom door. Do what every you need to for a new perspective.
