Family Photo Tips
- You don’t need a special occasion or fancy equipment to take pictures of your family. Just get out there and do it!
- Look for other people taking pictures… and then do it better! You can often find a cooler angle or a better hidden spot to take pictures even in a popular location. Don’t be standard, be creative!
- If you’re just out to have fun, don’t worry about what your family is wearing. Save the coordinated outfits for the more formal shoots.
- Go for candid shots! Regardless of the age of your kids, you’ll probably get some really fantastic pictures when you don’t ask them to pose a certain way. Just snap away and you’ll get something you love!
