scrapbooking gift for grandparents

Looking for the perfect gift for grandma and grandpa? Why not give them a gift that they’ll remember and treasure for years. Set up a special photo shoot for Grandma and Grandma with their favorite grandkids!

Before you start shopping around, calling local photographers, you should make a few important decisions about this very special shoot:

  • Decide how many people you want at the shoot. You can go with just your children, or invite the extended family and have all the cousins in the shoot for a really memorable day.
  • Pick out matching outfits! For a uniform and classy look, have everyone dress in black and white, or something simple that everyone will have in their closets.
  • Do you want to bring props along or maybe a family pet? These can be sweet touches to the photos.

For a really special touch, create a special scrapbook to hold all the photos from the shoot. The whole family will enjoy a great day of photos together, and have the photos to share years later.

Photo Shoots for Couples

Valentine’s Day is on its way, and you might want to show that special someone how much you care by presenting them with a photo album.  Getting a picture taken with your special someone is a great way to celebrate how much you love one another.  There are a few things to consider as you plan the perfect couple’s photo shoot.  Think about settings, apparel, lighting, and other variables.

Get great photos together!

Get great photos together!

A good photo can be a keepsake that you, as a couple, will cherish forever.  Whether it’s an engagement picture or a retirement picture, we all know that a great photo is something you’ll treasure.  That’s why it’s important to get it right.

You can start by looking through catalogs at a local photography studio to get some ideas.  You can talk with other couples and find out what their favorite photo opportunities are.  Talk to your partner—make a list of ideas and types of pictures you want.  Do you want affectionate shots?  Playful photos?  Close-ups?  Silhouettes?  Take the time to plan it out!

Think about what you’re wearing, too.  Choose clothing that is flattering and makes you feel comfortable.  Stick with solid colors, and keep jewelry simple so as not to distract from the photo.

When you’re looking for a background for your photo, think about places that hold positive memories for you as a couple.  Outdoor shots are always fun!  (Be careful, it’s cold out!)  Try your favorite restaurant, a playground, or a kitchen.  The options are endless.

Have fun!

Thinking of giving your sweetie a portrait of his or her pet this Valentine’s Day? Then be sure to use these quick and easy photo tips to ensure that you get the right shot to celebrate the occasion with:

1.)Start out by getting down to eye level with your pet. This should make the pet more comfortable, plus, it’ll give you a better photo.

2.)Next, consider using natural light since it’ll create a better look and feel in the picture. Try positioning your loved one’s pet near a window (covered by a sheer) with sunlight streaming in. Just be careful you don’t overexpose or get too much glare. The focus should stay on the pet.

3.)Clean up your photo by making sure the pet is well-groomed and by tidying up the spot where you want to take your photo. Remove any clutter and ensure that both the space and the pet are looking their best.

4.)Whether tilting their heads or perking up their ears, bringing out emotion in pets helps to make a photo spectacular. Watch for moments when they may give some expression. Make sounds or try talking to them to get a reaction.
