Family Photography Tips
Everyone Can Use

Family of 9

Family photography tips include everything from snapping off 20 baby pictures to posing relatives at your family reunion.

Even though family photos are generally the most valuable memories we have, we often delete more images than we keep (in spite of software that can now salvage pictures that used to be considered ruined).

If you want to delete less and proudly display more photos, you're in the right place!

The popularity of digital cameras continues to explode; however, easy and understandable tips for how to take better photographs continues to be elusive.

Knowing how to pose subjects, use backgrounds, and compose shots makes the difference between a Family Classic and an Also-ran (a.k.a. "deleted" image).

Simply owning a digital camera won't result in great photographs any more than buying a basketball guarantees playing the game like Michael Jordan.

Purchasing a digital camera is the easy part; using it well takes information and practice. We provide easy-to-learn family photography tips to help you create dazzling baby portraits, landscape photographs, and holiday pictures.

So, get ready to gobble up photography tips faster than a Sumo wrestler at an all-you-can-eat buffet. And if you remember only one thing from this site, let it be this...

If the world of digital photography overwhelms you, that's alright. It overwhelms everybody... in the beginning! So…

Would you like to have access to a professional photographer (that's me, by the way) who will sort through everything required for you to produce outstanding photos AND do it in a way that is easy to understand?

Think of those rare family moments like a family vacation, reunion, or silver anniversary party.

These events produce once-in-a-lifetime moments that can be turned into everything from an "over-the-mantel" masterpiece to holiday photo cards.

That's why we developed a system to prevent blinking from ruining pictures that can't be repeated! (It also works on less critical pictures too.)

But what are the best poses and family photography tips to get the best results? After all, there's no point of having 300 photographs with Aunt Mary's head cut off, all the cousins standing in shadows, or the new baby looking so blurry that you can't even tell what it is.

As a professional photographer specializing in family photography, I understand the frustrations, anxiety, and stress caused by wanting to take perfect pictures at a significant family event.

If you don't own a digital camera, we'll show you how to choose the best one for YOU. You'll also learn how to save money buying all kinds of photographic equipment.

If you already have a digital camera but don't know anything about photography techniques, we'll show you how to turn a "That's nice" picture into a W-O-W Photograph.

Know the best photography techniques when using a flash? Or, would you like a stunning family portrait in front of a waterfall? We'll even cover how to process/store your digital photos.

Learn family photography tips that 99% of the population doesn't know.
