Before and After School Snapshot

Whether it’s the first-day-of-school snapshot, the mid-year or last day, parents often pose their child in front of their home, backpack and smiles on! We wanted to share with you a few quick tips to help make the best of those memories!

1. Pull your child away from the wall! Lining up against the wall for a snapshot isn’t always the best composition. Instead, try having your child step forward, away from the wall quite a bit. This helps put the focus more on the child, and the wall is not so much a part of the photo any more.
2. Shoot in the shade. Many people think to get a well-lit snapshot, their photos should be taken with the subject in the sunlight. But the sunlight can be very harsh, create deep shadows and make your subject squint too much. Instead, find a great patch of shade and have your subject stand there.

You’ll be amazed at how much better your snapshots are if you following these two little tips!
