We are just days away from cozy and colorful autumn, which means that the holiday season will be upon us pretty soon. And I bet that a lot of you (including myself) are interested in how to take a great family ‘selfie’. These kinds of photos eternalize a special moment in your family’s lives, regardless of whether you put them on the wall, turn them into a calendar for the next year, or send them to far away family members just to show them what’s going on in your lives.
I chose a few articles about some tips and tricks ordinary people can do to get a nice family portrait. They all contain some useful advice on how to make photographing your own family a little easier and have the final results be more satisfactory. From ideal location ideas, camera equipment, and cute poses, each article takes a unique spin on the world of photography:

Once you have all those wonderful and creative photos of your family members, you can use them to embellish empty spaces on your walls. You can do this all year round obviously; but it is always fun to add photo related home decor pieces to the house during the holiday seasons (Autumn- Halloween/Thanksgiving & Winter- Christmas/New Year’s). They are especially fun to look at during a festive party. You can also add your family portraits to holiday greeting cards at photo companies like Shutterfly. If you want to carry the images around with you, there are custom iPhone cases. These iPhone 6 cases are really cute. It’s nice to think that you can always carry your family around with you, even when they seem far away.
