Zulily Tips on How to Photograph at Home!

  This year, Zulily also wants to help YOU take the best first-day-back photos by offering some photography tips and tricks from their studio team of in-house photographers.

Kindergarten to 4th Grade

·         Give your memories some context. Try posing them in a familiar setting with elements that define that time in your child's life. Use the photo as a way to tell a story to their future selves.

·         Squish the Bug! Sometimes it's hard for kids to understand why standing in one place for a photo is important.  In our studio, we draw a little bug on a piece of masking tape and place that tape precisely where we want the child to stand. When the time comes, we don't demand the kid stands still, we just play a game! "Can you jump on the bug?"  "Can you squish him?" Every time the model starts to wander off we say "jump back to the bug," "Quick! Squish him before he gets away!"
  
·         Simon Says. Games are the best way to keep your kids involved and present during your photoshoot. Rather than ordering them to stand up straight and smile, play a game of Simon Says! Mix in fun commands with your desired poses so as not to give away your new trick… “Simon says put your hands in your pocket!”


Tips for Photographing Tweens

·         Get them moving. Whether it’s a hair flip, throwing a football or flipping through a notebook, movement can capture the perfect candid (and what is more Instagram worthy than that?)

·         Give them something to do. A task. An Act. Three steps. Often times, standing still and smiling can get really old, really quick. For a more entertaining, enjoyable photoshoot introduce some sort of task and the photos will come effortlessly.

·         Big laughs, close crops. More than capturing a moment, we want our pictures to capture the essence of our subject’s personality. Laughter is a beautiful way to bring out those genuine features and we recommend getting up close so you don’t miss a thing!

 These are some great ideas! 
Thanks, Zulily for the tips, and for the opportunity to enter to win a great contest!

Good luck to all who ENTER!
