The Parents’ Guide to Photographing Holidays, Family Portraits, and Everyday Life


What parent doesn’t want to capture the perfectly imperfect joy of family life through photos? From holidays and vacations to portraits and shared moments, celebrated photographer (and mom) Me Ra Koh not only helps moms and dads take better photos, but inspires them to discover photography as a way to connect with, cherish, and celebrate their family. With forty beautiful “photo recipes” anyone can follow—with any camera—preserving your family’s story has never been easier!

A fun book! This is the third book in Me Ra Koh’s series. I haven’t read the first two of her books but I enjoyed the photo “recipes” in this one. 

The book had many good ideas for photos and good examples for inspiration but I didn’t think it had many photography “how to” tips. 

I liked that the book did have a lot of photos, both the author’s photos as well as the work of other women photographers. The photos were helpful examples of the particular subject. 

No fancy equipment required with this book; the simple ideas and examples presented can be used with whatever equipment you already have. This is a good photography resource for the typical, average, everyday, photo taking mom. A recommend book for anyone wanting to improve their photography skills.

kitty, here’s photographic evidence that you are NOT invisible 


“A bean bag is a perfect place to sulk. You can sink way down deep, and sulk for hours… You only have to stick your head up once in a while… to see if anybody cares.”

― Charles M. Schulz, The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 15: 1979-1980
