simple rules for pics

Hello there all you beautiful Momma’s! My name is Sandra Escareno and I am the owner of Ignite Artistry

I am a Lifestyle and Portrait photographer in northern Utah; but mostly I am a mom! I am in charge of 4 amazing and wild little humans who happen to be my favorite subjects to photograph!

So obviously, when Alexandra contacted me to write a guest post on photography tips for Moms, I was super stoked!

My original thoughts were to tell you how to work the settings on your camera to get the best photos possible…but then…I dropped my camera in Yellowstone half way through my amazing family vacation!

And I am BEYOND excited to be teaming up with Sleeping Baby for an awesome Zippy giveaway!!! One Lucky Person will win ONE Zippy of their choice!!! (Keep reading for the Giveaway!) Oh my..YES Please! You may be asking yourself, “What is a Zippy?” Well, let me tell you!

“The Zipadee-Zip wearable blanket is loved by sleep experts, doctors, pediatricians and parents everywhere because it provides a womb-like environment but still allows a baby to have full range of movement so that a baby can roll over and wiggle around safely and freely. Babies can even pick up and put in their pacifier or play with a toy while wearing one! It prevents the risk of hip dysplasia, keeps loose blankets out of the crib and is also safe to be worn while a baby is buckled into a car seat or stroller! It’s also perfect for keeping germs at bay on airplanes, in doctor’s offices and in grocery stores!”

First/Then charts are one of my favorite behavior aids! They are easy to use and easy for kids to understand! It can be SO hard for our tiny humans to grasp the concept of First/Then. “FIRST we are eating dinner, THEN you can play outside”.  When really, all they heard was, “play outside”. By using a “First/Then” chart you can help them understand by giving them a visual.

First/Then charts are also amazing to use as simple picture schedules. For many children, especially those with disabilities, having a visual picture schedule is CRUCIAL! By using a First/Then schedule your kids will be able to anticipate what is going to happen next. This in itself can eliminate many problem behaviors.

20things

When I got pregnant people would always ask me if I wanted a boy or a girl. Because it took us so long to get pregnant (read that story here) I never really cared if it was a boy or a girl. I just wanted a happy, healthy baby! And I was just BEYOND excited that I was actually able to have a baby! A baby of our very own! But the look on my husband’s face when we found out we were having a boy…seriously priceless. I have never seen him so happy! And now that I have a boy I would love to have 10! They are SO much fun! Here are a few things I have learned about having a boy….

Home Made Dragon Spray [And FREE printables!]

dragonspraycoverWhen I was little, I was scared of EVERYTHING.
No joke. Everything! You name it, I was scared of it. I remember nights when it started to get dark, my stomach would start to hurt. I hated sleeping because I was so scared. It could be the thought of an earthquake that scared me, the thought of a ghost, maybe a bad person coming into my home….whatever it was it all scared me! My mom ended up making some magic potion that saved my life. She called it “Dragon Spray”. Each night before bed she would spray it in mine and my sibling’s rooms. It helped me sleep in peace! There are times that I will smell something that smells like dragon spray and it will instantly make me think of that wonderful spray! Years later I now know that the spray was water and some stinky perfume all mixed together in a big bottle!
