5 Holiday Photo Ideas For Sensory Seeking Children
As you know I am a proud mom of a sensory seeker, my 3 year old Korey has significant sensory seeking tendencies and capturing photos for the holiday’s is never easy. Trying to find ways to get him to sit still is a chore in itself, here are 5 tips to try and get your sensory seeker to take the best holiday photo.
1. Include photos of them with just their sibling.
Often my son does so much better at sitting still when he is with his little brother. He knows to be gentle and loves to make him laugh. These photos will capture the love your children have for each other and be a wonderful edition to your holiday cards.
2. Give your child something to play with or interact with.
Keeping them busy with their hands will allow you to focus on their face and capture expressions of joy. These candid moments will allow you to see a softer side of your child who may have trouble taking every day pictures.
3. Photos with the family pet.
What better way than to bring out laughter and smiles from your child than having a family pet in their photos? This may be tricky to get a still shot if you don’t have a fast shooting camera and taking them on your own. If that’s the case have your child play for a while with the pet until they start to calm more and the pictures will be easier to take.
4. Let them express themselves.
When you have a sensory seeker you know they have a distinct personality. Try to capture photos where that shines through. No photo is better than one where your family and friends can sense that wonderful personality that they love so much.
5. Give them a different environment.
If your child does better in environments that are not home, then you should consider taking them outside or to a favorite play place. Different environments can sometimes bring out the best in your child and make them feel open to taking pictures.
I hope these holiday photo ideas for sensory seeking children help you this holiday season.
