Family Photography Tips

Last year the Zurcher family {my family} took formal photos for the first time in about eight years. It's been a year since then, but we all look pretty much the same. During the shoot, I remember thinking, "Oh, boy, I can't wait to see how these turn out..." There may have been a little sarcasm in there. Looking at them again after a year I think they're great. Not bad for first-timers {pretty much}.

Looking to shoot family photos? Here are some tips from shutterfly:

*Don’t stress about dress--look like yourselves.
*Go for variety--standing is boring; try posing a different way.
*Lighten up--forego the flash; use natuaral light as much as possible.
*Tighten the frame--close up!
*Shooting spree--take advantage of digital! Take lots of pictures--candid & posed.
Hope these help you on your next photo shoot. They helped us!
