Look At Mommy

Having a product like the Look At Mommy LED is certainly one of those tricks, but another great piece of advice is to set your kid up with a fun activity and get photos that way.

According to professional photographer and mom of two Heather Forbes, you could certainly try to get a photograph of your child sitting still with their hands in their lap, but that’s nearly impossible. Instead, the best route to take is to keep them busy and engaged and then snap away!

“If you take your child outside or have her play a game on the floor or blow some bubbles, and then you go ahead and snap 100 photos, you’re going to have a money shot in there somewhere—once your child forgets you’re taking photos. The biggest mistake is giving up too quickly,” she told Baby Center.

So, with this advice and a silly-looking LED light that’s sure to get your kids’ attention, you’ll be taking professional-level photos in no time!

Of course, the clip-on LED light isn’t an entirely new invention. You can purchase other models for under $10 on Amazon. (The Look at Mommy version just so happens to have a colorful character on top that could come in handy for getting little ones to, well look at mommy!)
