We know family photos can be hard to take. Follow these easy tips for taking the perfect photo for your holiday photo cards.
Choose the right lighting: The soft,
warm natural glow in the morning or late afternoon is ideal for flattering faces and capturing the mood. Avoid bright sun, and areas of dark shadow or stark white light.
Have some fun! The best family photos aren't stiff or overly posed. They should reflect your unique style and personality. Get the kids smiling—by saying something silly and spontaneous that they'll love.
Get coordinated: Whether you prefer to be formal or casual, it's a good idea to coordinate your family's outfits in related color palettes. (Everyone can express their own style, but together, you want it to be clear that you're a family.)
