I finally booked a family portrait session
With the great Jack Rodriguez.
He’s taken pictures of my sisters family for the past couple years
And he is amazing.
(it helps that they’re all so darned cute!)
So I finally quit procrastinating and booked a date.
Of course, as soon as I did that I started to worry that my pictures wouldn’t come out so great. I started googling ways to pose.
It’s amazing the tricks that are out there.
Don’t look straight at the camera.
Turn to the side a bit, shoulder facing the camera.
Watch for double chin.
Don’t leave your arms against your body, it flattens them out and makes them look bigger.
Seriously, I’ve been doing this stuff for the past 30 years, why is it now that I’m just googling it?!!
Then there’s the location. I want to capture the kids personalities as they are now.
Where could this magical place be?
How about the clothing?!
We don’t want to be too matchy matchy,
but we also don’t want to look like a circus with 100 different colors and styles going on.
or like these folks...You have to plan so much to look “natural”!
I mean I don’t want to come out looking like this...
Suspicious Minds Seriously, you have to check out this website.
I couldn't stop laughing.
Oh wait, I hope I don't turn up on here one day...hide the headshots!!
