Family - Group Photo Tips

It's that time of year for family gatherings and holiday greetings. Coming soon to your mailbox - photo cards from friends near and far.

Companies like Shutterfly and Tiny Prints make it super easy to create these photo cards and can serve as a fun keepsake for years down the road.

I've saved our family's Christmas photo card since I first started sending them out, from 1999. Back then, you had to order multiple copies of your 4x6 photo and slip them into a card sleeve.

Some handy tips for taking your family photo:

Get everyone (including parents, even grandparents) in the photo!
I know many parents simply include photos of the kids. I really want to see you, too!

Get close together, hug each other.

These photos are wonderful...I have the old 4x6 photos too. I was able to take a few pictures for Christmas cards this year....your tips made so much sense. Merry Christmas or should I say, Advent to you.

Shirley - I am so behind with making my rounds on blogs - and was thinking of you and your training for marathons today as I caught up with an old friend who has become passionate about running. Love the 'selfie' of the family and hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season. Happy New Year!
