Preparing for a Family Photo Shoot

#ad If you want to capture great pictures of you and your family you must hire a well-seasoned and trained photographer that will take incredible pictures and bring them to life.


Companies like Lasting Expressions can give you a host of photos to keep, so that you can make memories and treasure every one of them.

A Grand Event

Taking family pictures may not be your favorite thing to do with your gang, especially if you have children involved that are little and have a small attention span.  If you have wish for professional pictures and need an update, it is time to bite the bullet and create a magnificent photo opportunity.  Choose a company that specializes in helping children to set up for fun family pictures. This will make the process run smoother and will hopefully help your children to be smiley and pleasant during the shoot.  Specialized photographers are well-equipped with the proper devices and tools to help them turn a crying baby into a giggly, sweet bundle of joy.  Choose a time of day when everyone seems to be in the best mood, has eaten a snack, and has used the restroom. This will eliminate any breaks or lost time during your session.

What to Wear

Discuss with the photographer what the best colors and styles are to dress the whole family in.  You can choose to go casual or dressy, but also determine how everyone can color coordinate in the best way possible. Before you look at your developed pictures, have in mind the price range you want to stay in and how many pictures you want to receive.  There may be some bargain prices or deals on packages if you purchase a large group at once, so always inquire about the prices and you never know when you can walk away with a steal.  You will be very happy and delighted to finally have a new set of family photographs.  These are memories that you can treasure and cherish for the rest of your life.

Please Say Cheese

Companies like Lasting Expressions can give you great tips when trying to get your family dressed and arranged for your photo session.  Listen to the photography experts and you can walk away with a perfect set of gorgeous family pictures.

#MMBloggerSpotlight Giveaway!

*This is a Fashionista Events Opportunity.

Hello lovelies!  I'd like to introduce you to my friend Gretchen of Clarice's Book Nook & The Perspective Of A Suburban Housewife.  She has sweetly agreed to be my model for the Knot Your Mother's Dress I received from Monroe & Main.



I'm head over heels for this dress and I have to say, Gretchen looks completely gorgeous in it!  The Knot Your Mother's Dress comes in a variety of vibrant colors, making it the go-to dress for Spring.

We styled this gorgeous dress two different ways, as seen below.  Notice how the empire waist creates a flattering outline and the length is appropriate for many types of wear.  The material of this dress is soft and light, allowing it to be dressed up or down, accented with layers or without.  It's rare for a dress to be considered both sophisticated AND fun, but this dress definitely fits the bill!


I've made a few extra examples below to further demonstrate the versatility of the Knot Your Mother's Dress.  Which is your favorite?


I am beyond excited to let you know that you, my dear readers, have not one, but TWENTY FIVE chances to win this dress in any color you like!  After you enter my giveaway below, use the linky to hop around to the other 24 blogs in the event.  Each blog has their own giveaway for this lovely Monroe and Main "Knot your Mother's" dress!  Good luck everyone!

*I was given the dress mentioned above in exchange for an honest review.  
No money exchanged hands and all opinions are my own.

Advantages of an Online Photography Class



Taking pictures is an activity that pretty much everyone participates in. Taking pictures of special events & tender moments make it possible for you & your loved ones to enjoy a memory for the rest of your lives. A picture captures a moment that will never happen again and if you take a picture of it then you can preserve that moment in time. Because taking pictures is so important, there are many places on the Internet that you can go to participate in an online photography course.

With an online class, you are able to stay in the comfort of your own home to go through the course. You can dress up in fancy clothes or you can keep your pajamas on for the duration of the day. You will also be able to complete the coursework when it is convenient for you and fits in with your schedule. You can do some work first thing in the morning or you can wait until after get home from work to complete some of the assignments.

Although the learning process is different than what you would be doing in a traditional classroom, you will still have all of the tools and information necessary to learn all that you can from the class. Make sure that you have a camera to work with before you ever start the class. You will need a good internet connection & the best camera that you can afford. The rest of the tools are on the Internet or included with the class for you to work with.

You can also move through the class as fast or as slow as you want. You can go back to previous lessons if you are feeling unsure about something and stay there until you feel comfortable moving on. If you come across a lesson with information that you are already knowledgeable in, then you can zoom through it & not waste any more time. With an online photography course, you can move at your own pace and complete it on your own timetable. You won’t have to feel the pressure or the feeling of being rushed that you might experience in a traditional classroom setting.
