Summertime sparks an intuitive collection of photos propelled by children and the everyday joys of water, toys and endless amounts of energy. It’s not hard to find a little inspiration right outside your door. Snapping photos of  summer playtime can ignite even the tiniest bit of nostalgia within minutes – and last a lifetime. The perfect key elements to great summertime photos are literally just a click away. The summer world is ready to go – just add children!

Waterworks at the pool

Great pool poses are instant classics.  From up close face shots, splashing, jumping, swimming and playing, children are aqua-batic tricksters waiting for a photo op.

Beaches are for bums (and children)

Pool time may be the highlight of a child’s day, but they are second rate when it comes the beach. Salty water, fish, shells and sandcastles can fill a child’s summertime dreams at night. Mention those sandy shores to any tike and watch those eyes light up!

Any toy will do, thankyouverymuch!

The great thing about children is that they do not need a large body of water to occupy their summertime days and keep your camera busy making memories.  Bubbles, water hoses (and water toys), sidewalk chalk and lemonade stands provide ample ingredients for photo magic (and fun!) during the blissful summer days.
