Family Photography Tips


Our publisher, Christine Pilkington, was on Global TV today talking about how to get the best photographs of your family. If you missed it, here’s an overview.

Hire a pro

Yes, your phone camera has a timer, but it’s well worth getting a professional involved at least once a year. Professional photographers spend all day getting the best shots of people – they will capture you and yours in the best light possible. And you will actually be in the shot, there’s a lot to be said for that!


What to ask a professional photographer

It may seem intimidating if you’ve never worked with a photographer before, but here’s a list of the things you should ask before you agree to a shoot:

  • How much will it cost? What will you get in the end? (DVD of all the images, canvas prints, framed prints, etc)
  • Will the photographer come to you?
  • How soon will you see the results of your photoshoot and how? How soon will prints be available?
