Tips from our  family of 6

Holiday Family Photo Shoot

I look forward to our family photo sessions but sometimes it can be hard to prepare – especially around the holidays when things are extra busy. Here are a few tips that work well for our family of 6 ~

Having snacks, lollipops or a toy that brings a smile are helpful to have on hand ~

Create a checklist of the type of photos that you want and share it with your photographer beforehand. 

For us, this includes remembering to get one of just me and my husband. 

And individual pictures of each of our 4 kids

And one of just YOU.  

Secret pro tip: ask your photographer if she does head swaps so you are guaranteed to get one of everyone looking at the camera (this is very helpful for large groups or if you have  small children!)
