Every night at the time of sunset, our three-year old daughter starts one of our favorite rituals : tell her an invented story in which she is the heroine or that depicts the adventures of his security blanket, beloved, Mr Monkey, which is known to be very, very naughty.
I told myself that it might be a good idea to give life to one of its stories creating a photo book from pictures of Mr Monkey is preparing to do something stupid. I had to time the photograph very carefully, because Mr Monkey is not often out of his field of vision ! I used a simple text to tell a story about what Mr Monkey when we are not at home : watch tv or play with all the toys of our daughter, for example. My tip to make it look more realistic : use pins to hold her legs in place.
To make this custom story, I used the Photo Book Happy Moments because it contains 24 very thick pages. You can also do it with our book for babies, My First Photo Album, the pages are cardboard, and which has been specifically designed for young people through its pages thick, which look very easily. If you have taken photos with your phone, it is really very simple to accomplish one of these photo albums from your phone. The whole set took me less than an hour in all.
A few tips for photographing stuffed animals
- Use pins, a ruler, and scotch tape to keep the toy in place while you’re shooting
- Take more pictures than necessary
- Try different angles to give more life to your photos
