Kids Photography Boot Camp
How photograhy can boost your Child's Mental Health
We’re living through anxious times at the moment, and as a result, it’s more important than ever for our kids to have creative outlets that allow them to escape for a little bit.
There’s no right or wrong way to take a photo, so there’s no pressure on them to “get it right”. Instead, they can just focus on taking photos that make them happy.
Time spent taking photos can have a positive effect on your child’s well-being, boosting self-esteem, confidence, memory, and decision making... It also acts as a form of grounding which helps focus their mind in the "here and now" which in turn helps with overwhelming feelings of anxiety, giving them a tool to help themselves feel more calm and confident....
The creative process also provides opportunities to celebrate a their uniqueness, which is an important element of developing a strong sense of self. Photography forces us to live in the moment, and to pay attention to what’s happening around us, which is a form of mindfulness, and great for busting stress and anxiety.
It’s A Great Excuse To Get Outside, It Stimulates Creativity, Builds Self Esteem, They’ll be mastering a brand new skill, which can boost their overall confidence and mental well-being, so it’s a win win!
