Photographer Stephanie West shares how to get your family ready for those holiday photos.

What to wear:
-Dress mom first
-Coordinate the family’s outfit to the mom
-Pick clothes you feel confident in
-Textures can make a difference!
-Try not to wear the same color top as one another. Wear complimenting colors.

How to make sure you get great candid photos:
-Be yourself
-Be playful
-Don’t try to control your kids. Just relax and let them be themselves. Let the photographer be in control of getting your kids to cooperate.
-If the parents are always happy and smiling then the photographer can focus on getting the kids to smile and laugh without having to worry the parents.
-Come relaxed and ready to have fun!
