Tis the season for christmas cards and family photos

Trendy Tuesday

It’s that time of the year when you are out searching for the right outfit, location and theme for those lovely family photos!! But getting a bit bored with the usual portrait shots? After doing some pinterest perusing I rounded up some the classic family photo trends so you can see what REALLY captures your families personality in a photo. I also thought up some quick tips for you…

Five zesty tips…

1. Choose your photographer- make sure you have seen their work before and you feel like they grasp your style.

2. Choose your location- pick a place your family actually goes, it will feel more natural and comfortable. Like just another family outing {but with a professional photographer}

3. Choose your color scheme- Pick colors that compliment YOU and each other nicely, no need to match exactly but simply be in a similar color family. Keep your location in mind as well.

4. Choose your poses and props- once again, you want to feel comfortable and not “posed” so have fun with it! Grab a book you actually read or a favorite blanket you actually snuggle.
