(Inside: Moms love when our photos look professional. Here are some quick and easy tips on how to make your family photos look fantastic.)
I love hiring a professional to take my family photos. It’s spectacular to see what an expert does with our family photos.
But, I can’t always afford it.
We’re in the phase of life where our kids are growing and changing so fast. I like to try and fit in a mini-family photo session every season. How we make this happen is we pair up with our neighbors. The mom takes pictures of my family, then I take pictures of hers.
Then to make our family photos look professional, I run them through filters on my computer and phone.
We were going for a golden hue look in these photos, a welcoming of summer after a long Minnesota winter.
I love how they turned out. This family is stunning.
If you’re like me and you like photography, find a friend to switch photo sessions with. We usually do this when it’s convenient, like before church or a holiday gathering. I’ve stopped stressing about trying to get the best photos ever, I just shoot for 15 minutes and know I’ll get some pictures taht I like.
And, that’s good enough for me.
Family photos that look professional enough. Done. I’m a happy mom.
