I have TONS of pictures of my kids. I literally have hundreds (dare I say thousands?) of Charlie. But I have VERY few pictures of all three of my kids together. Which makes me sad when I have a fabulous deal on a canvas I want to order. (Which I do). So this week I dragged them all down to the beach near our house for a photo shoot.
It didn't really work. Mostly because Charlie was being a butt.
Then I came home, and asked my blog friends: How do you shoot "canvas worthy" photos?
Here are the responses I got:
Go candid? Or get a friend to shoot them....mine were often better behaved for people they didn't call mom!!
I don't have any tips for getting all three to cooperate - it's
HARD!! My tip is this: when you take the picture make sure to leave
plenty of negative space around the edges of your composition. If you
frame your shot too tight you won't have room for the wrap.

I can't even get two to look in the same direction and smile at
the same time, let alone three. I have found only one photographer who
can get great shots of my girls, so I rely on her.
that second is totally canvas worthy! :) I love not perfect
photos! Its such a true struggle of families while taking pictures! :)
It looks like the 2 oldest children were willing to have thier photo taken by you. I would bribe Charlie. Yup bribe him!
I ended up relying on Lightroom presets to make an otherwise basic photo a little more "canvas worthy". I think the editing makes it look a little more timeless. I mean it's not perfect, but it'll do. What do you think?
