Get The Most From Your Family
Tips from Ana Schechter – Lifestyle Photographer
- How do I get a Cardworthy Photo that reflects our family's personality?
- How do I get my young child to cooperate?
- How do I get my husband to let loose?
Step 1: Just be you
People always say the same thing to me. 'We don't like getting our pictures taken and we're not very good at it.' Just be you. Provoke real moments. That's it.
Step 2: Be on spoiler alert
Generally a pouty kid just wants to be the center of attention. So sometimes it's helpful to let them take a break. And what do you know? As they look on from the sidelines all of a sudden look who’s back in the frame.
Step 3: Just keep clicking
I find the best part of my job is telling a story of a family. And that's what you do with your holiday card. Take way more photos than you could possibly think you'll ever need. Just click, click, click. You're going to have so many to choose from and you’ll have gotten what you need.
