The "looking natural" pose

"Look natural!" is the single most heard phrase before tensing up. We all want our family photos to look as natural and easy-going as possible. So today let's take a look at a collection of tips and ideas, that will help you loosen up and enjoy this precious process:

Creating natural connections in family photography

1. Let go of all expectations

Letting go will take some pressure off and help you relax and enjoy this occasion. Remember - the perfect family portrait may be different than the one you have in your mind! Relax & have fun.

2. Why so serious?

Remember to be silly, play, laugh, and let go. Make your family photo session a fun event, something to look forward to.

3. Focus on yourself

It’s a common mistake to focus on getting everyone else to look perfect. Focus on looking your best yourself and leave everyone else to me.

4. Keep it moving!

Moving between shots is actually the best way to create authentic and candid images. Even supermodels move between their shots!

5. Remember to breathe

It's obvious, but oh so easily forgotten. Deep breaths will help you calm your nerves and slow your heart rate!
