PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR CHILDREN – TIPS

Tips for taking your photograph:

If indoors, make sure the room is bright enough and there are no dark shadows under their eyes from overhead lights. Stand with your back to a big window if possible and have your child facing the window. Remove all clutter from the background.

If outside make sure the light is even on their face and there are no bright patches of light on them. Make sure your background is clear from clutter.

If you have an iPhone try using Portrait Mode.

Think about clothing choices, colours that will work well with the photograph. Try and avoid heavy patterns, big logos and cartoon tops as these will detract away from your child’s face in the final photo.

Send the best quality photo you can, don’t crop the image if you can avoid it.
