Once you have a movie night in your backyard, you are not going to watch movies any other way! This is a fun and safe way to spend time with friends and family all summer long.

Summer is officially here at The Robins Nest and that means we are outside more than we are inside.

Movie theaters may not be an option to see a new movie right now, but you can still watch it on the big screen by throwing an epic movie night in your backyard.

There are a few essentials that you need, such as a movie screen. If you have a white wall like the side of your garage that is all you need. If not you can purchase a white shower liner from Dollar Tree or you can purchase an outdoor projection screen here.

You need a projector to show your movie and this mini projector is the perfect size.

If you want great sound for your movie, you will need these rock speakers. They are meant for the outdoors and they hook up via Bluetooth which means easy setup.

Lounge chairs and hammocks are ideal, but your little ones are going to want be front and center. Make sure you have an outdoor blanket for them to lay on during the show.

It’s not movie night without snacks! Candy and sweets are a must but how you make your popcorn is up to you. If you are the microwave type this bundle is perfect. If you are more of an outdoor over the fire type be sure to grab some Jiffy Pop or this outdoor popcorn popper set.

These variety pack of snacks are a great deal! Just put them in a caddy from Dollar Tree and pass it around!

When the sun goes down the bugs come out. Smell fresh and repel those mosquitoes with the effective insect repellent spray.

Fun pajamas are a must for your movie night. Your little ones may want to dressed like the theme of the movie or they may want something with an outdoors theme. Check out these cute pj’s that are camping themed and snack themed just to get an idea.

This summer is going to look different so we need to continue being creative at home. Whether you are looking for a family night, time with friends, or a date for two this outdoor movie night will sure be a hit!

10 Must Have Photography  Accessories For Every Mom

10 Must Have Photography Accessories For Every Mom

Choosing the right camera and accessories for your beginner photography journey can be very overwhelming. I was one of those moms who took pictures with just an iPhone, but wanted to take it to another level.

After lots of research and joining supportive Facebook groups for beginner photographers, I finally found my dream camera. It doesn’t stop there though, you will need accessories to help you make your photography journey a success. Whether this is for your hobby or you are starting a business these affordable yet very effective photography accessories will help you become successful.

I own a Canon Rebel T7 2000D. Some of the accessories that I am going to share are specifically for my model camera but please know that you can still get it for your model as well whether it is a Canon or Nikon.

  • Camera Bag
This waterproof bag by S-ZONE is the perfect size and fits everything you need including an extra lens. I love that it does not shout ‘camera bag’ and overall looks like a fashionable cross-body instead.
  • Tripod
If you want to join in the photos with your little ones and no one is around to take you picture, this is a great option. This tripod folds up easily and is lightweight for you to travel with if needed.
  • Mini Photo Studio Box
This little accessory is so affordable there is no reason for you not to have it! The lighting is fantastic and has an opening on top you get an accurate bird eye view photo if you choose.
  • Scarf Camera Strap
At just $7 bucks this fashionable scarf strap is stylish and comfortable. Its lightweight and soft fabric will let you wear your camera around your neck all day long.
  • Wireless Remote
A wireless remote gives you the freedom to get the action shot you would not be able to obtain while holding a camera. It’s hard for your little ones to stay still so this is very helpful plus another reason to get you in the picture as well!
  • Ring Light
Lighting is very important when it comes to photography. This traveling light ring is perfect for indoors that do not have the best natural light.
  • Backdrop
This basic backdrop is great for any occasion and is a great alternative if you do not have a light background to take pictures. Add accessories such as plants, garland balloons etc for occasion!
  • 50 mm f/1.8 STM Lens
If you are going to get an extra lens, this is the one. This lens is great for portraits with clear close ups and the background blurred with the auto focus feature.
  • Mamarazzi Tee
If you’re going to shoot, you might as well do it in style. you have everything you need now to be fully prepared for pictures with your little ones so why not do it in style?
  • ‘Mom’s Gonna Snap’ Coffee Mug
You know you can’t take great photos of your kiddos without a giant mug of coffee! Drink up mama and enjoy!

You never stop learning about photography, there is always something new to learn but having the basics helps you in the right direction. The more you learn the more confidence you have with your camera and the more confidence you have better photographs are taken.
