Zulily are looking for bloggers who want to share their best tips for taking photos of our little ones, in addition to their monthly photograph competition on Intagram where you post a picture of your child with their biggest grin tagging the following

  • #zulilyUKJanuaryCutiesCompetition
  • @zulilyUK
  • and either: #zulilynewbie (if you’re new to zulily) or #zulilian (if you’ve already joined zulily)

You also need to be following zulilyUK on Instagram too! Zulily are also inviting bloggers along to not only share their three top tips but also a favourite photograph that has been taken by themselves.

My top tips:

  • Try to take shots with good natural lighting. Some of my best photos have been taken in the park and sometimes using a tree’s branches or an apparatus can be used to frame your child bringing the focus of the picture onto them.
  • Remove any objects around what you are on focusing on for example, pieces of paper on the table behind your child or too many toys scattered on the floor, anything that could be a distraction in the photo or for your children. Keep your child at eye level and central.
  • Be quick especially with toddlers, It’s not often that my youngest stays still long enough to capture the moment so i always keep a camera or phone within reach. A lot of my photos are taken on my Iphone which can be edited really well in your albums or through an app like Instagram.

I have many photos that I could say are my favourite so it was hard to pick out just one but after hours of looking through my albums i think i may have found it! It is of Joseph and was taken in the park on a climbing frame.


I like all the lines around Joseph that the planks of wood are causing, they all seam to focus and lead to my son.

If your a blogger and want to take part in Zulilys Photo competition why not compose a post yourself, the winner will be selected by their lead photographer and you could win £100 in Zulily vouchers and two runners up will also win £25 vouchers
