Who doesn't love having great portraits of their family?

Some great tips from our JOP parents!

1. Use the same photographer every year. Your kids will become comfortable with them and it will show! You don't want your kids to have to get comfortable with someone new all over again.

2. Make sure your kids love their outfits! Buy them a new pair of shoes or something they will be excited to show off in their photos! A child not happy in their clothes will not be happy in their photos!

3. Be prepared to capture special off-guard moments happening where the action is not. There is always so much happening and picture perfect moments are all around!

4. When taking your fall portraits, don't be afraid to get creative with backgrounds and poses. Also, don't be afraid to get a little dirty and throw some leaves around! It's nice to let loose during a session, especially at the end!!

5. When taking portraits with others, be open-minded!
Good ideas come in all shapes and sizes from all family members!

6. Relax your shoulders and push them slightly back.
Your body language will relay a welcoming openness in the picture
. Take deep breaths throughout the whole session.
This not only calms you, but it calms the kids around you.

7. And most importantly... always let your enjoyment show through! Have fun! Don't be afraid to pick up the kiddos and toss them in there air. Give your spouse a sweet kiss on the cheek. Engage in one another, this always brings out the true love and emotions of the family. 
We are capturing the fine art of YOUR life, so show it off!
