Tips on how to take great family photos

Here are some great tips I came across to help you and your Au Pair take great family photos.

SugarSteve, a dad to a 2-year-old writes: We visit my parents’ lake house every autumn. Each year we take a family picture in the same spot on the dock in front of the house. It’s fun to re-create the picture every year and a great way to keep track of how our daughter has grown.

TipperPond, parent of a 6-year-old, writes: “Most people shoot the same types of pictures from the same distance. You’ll get better pictures if you move in close on your kids’ faces or turn your camera so it’s not perfectly straight. Also pay attention to the horizon line: Lots of people place it right in the middle of the picture. To create more interesting photos, crouch down and shoot your kids from below, or stand above them and point the camera down.”


I hope you try some of these and share the pics with me!
