A great way to update your family portraits

Family portraits are no doubt one of your most treasured family possessions, yet we delay getting them done for all sorts of reasons. Here is a great reason to do them now. A Fundraiser.photo family portrait event raises money for your cause, and provides a great opportunity to acquire a future heirloom at well below studio prices.

For only $195 you get a family portrait session with three beautiful matted portraits, with extra copies for gifts and digital copies. The $295 package includes a premium framed portrait for the wall and higher res digital copies as well. Check out the package offerings:

What to wear

A little effort with wardrobe can make a huge difference to the success of your family portraits. The main message is to make sure the clothing does not distract.

How to prepare young children for family portraits

Young children can be unpredictable at times. This can be quite stressful for parents who want a beautiful family portrait.  The best advice I can give for parents who may be worried about the kids not cooperating is to not worry about that. We expect kids to be unpredictable, its ok if they are a little crazy. When you talk about the family portrait session with them, tell them it will be fun, don’t talk to them at all about their behaviour at the session. Well, every child is different, I find this often helps with the cheeky ones.
