family picIt takes a surprising amount of effort to create a family photograph that you will be proud to have hanging on your wall, but there are some helpful tips to make sure that you end up with the kind of snap that you truly desire.

One good tip is to choose the best time to take a photograph. This needs to be when your kids are usually at their most good natured and happy. If you have small children, they are likely to be tired and perhaps not in the right mood to pose for photographs at five or six o’clock in the afternoon/evening. On the other hand, if you have teenagers, it might not be the best idea to rouse them out of bed at 8 am to take a photo. Choose a time that is convenient for everyone.

Although many people think they should get all dressed up for a family photo, it might actually be a better idea to stay casual. Families that are relaxed and comfortable are going to result in a much more relaxed and warmer photograph.

Family photos are worth the inevitable hassles and headaches.  Be patient, keep a sense of humor and enjoy the natural quirkiness of your family!
