Trick or Treat!

Tips for getting great costume shots of your little ones:

1. Try to take some pictures early enough to use daylight. Sunlight is definitely looks better than indoor lights or the pop up flash on the camera.

2. Get a shot of your princess, buzz lightyear, or pumpkin :) doing something (like walking down the street in the example below) instead of just sitting still for a picture. It's more fun and the picture will look more lifelike.

3. I like to take costume pics out on the street in front of my house.  The road provides a natural, blank backdrop against the costume and the sides of the street naturally frame your kids in the picture. The street also happens to be appropriate since they will, after all, be walking down the street as they skip from house to house.

4. Doorstep pictures are also nice with halloween decor and pumpkins.

Happy Halloween!!
