The Solars talk about the kinds of photos they used to take of their kids – photos that included a big plastic number one of their first baby. They didn’t buy any more big plastic numbers. Instead, their style evolved over the years into a documentary style of photography.
Josh explains to me how taking time to add alternative text to their photos online has provided opportunities to their family. Josh admits that adding the text is annoying, but it also tells us how the time has paid off.
Jenny talks about what it is like sharing online both the good and the bad about their family’s life, especially during their family’s recent health struggles.
Josh’s Tips for Parents:
Get down on your kids’ level. It’s more fun and you’ll get better photos too. And, treat your phone’s camera just like a “real” camera.
Jenny’s Tip for Parents:
Do adventurous things with your family. It’s okay to do your own thing and don’t worry about what other people think.
