I must admit I was reluctant to review Capture the Moment because I am a photographer with many photography books on my self, however, I am so glad I chose it. This is a wonderful photography resource for parents, photographers (new and experienced) and anyone who wants to take better photos.
Author Sarah Wilkerson is the CEO of Clickin Moms, the photography industry’s largest social network of female photographers. This is not a mechanics photography book, it does not include tons of technical jargon. It is full of simple tips and examples that will help you take better photos or brush up on your photography skills. The book is divided into topics coving natural light, composition, storytelling, fine art, black and white and low light. Each page has a tip and photo example. At the end of each chapter are creativity exercises.
First of all the book is beautiful, it is a hardback full of great photos. You could leave it out on a table. I love the simplicity of the book with helpful photography tips and examples. I felt like many of the tips were wonderful takeaways and that you could practice them around your house. The exercises at the end of each chapter are also great for practicing. As a photographer myself I felt like this was a wonderful book to add to my collection and a great resource for getting back to the basics.

Like I mentioned above I think more than just moms can benefit from this book. Bloggers wanted to take better photos would gain from this book. Photographers both new and seasoned I think would enjoy this book.
