"Tips For A Picture-Perfect Holiday Photo"  

  • Outfits - It's okay to coordinate them to make sure they go together, but please no matching.
  • Involve the kids - Ask your kids be a part of the planning. If they don't like the idea, you're not going to get a good picture.
  • Setting - You want it to be fun but also fits the situation. Goes hand-in-hand with the outfits.
  • Don't judge - Let the photographer do their job. Don't be a dictator. Just relax and enjoy the moment.
  • No "Cheese" - Don't say cheese before taking the photo. It will give you a weird looking face in the picture.
  • Take lots of pictures - Once you're done, you can't make more. So, take many photos. It will give you more options.

I hope this helps you take a great portrait this holiday season.
