A Little Photo Tip...

We just returned from our nephew's wedding in Idaho and of course, a ton of photos were taken. I took this one of three of my nieces. The first one was their pose, the second one, I requested that the tip their heads in slightly.

Whenever I take posed photos, I always say, "Heads together!" The result, at least to my eye, is always a more pleasant shot that makes the subjects look connected. My boys instantly tip their heads towards each other now when I pose them. But, being young boys, they usually start out with a head butt before they settle down and pose.

Next time you are taking family photos, have everyone tip their heads in slightly towards the middle of the group. It will make your photos look friendlier!

I can completely see the boys head butting. Too funny! Great example of photos.

I do this too! When I take pics of my kids with friends they always look at me funny, lol. It looks so much better though.
