Indoor photo tip for gloomy days

Despite all the beautiful Christmas lights around us, this is the darkest time of the year, with quite limited natural light available for indoor photography. I wanted to share a tip for taking photos of your kids in your home (or anyone / anything really!), and it’s really easy! All you have to do is to find a big window or glass door, and take the photos there. Even if it’s raining, snowing or just being a generally gloomy day, there is usually always enough light in the day for you to take a beautiful photo. I’ve added a few examples to show you what kind of photos a window can give you - and if you move around the object you can get lots of different kids of looks as the light will fall differently!
