The New Year has arrived and we wanted to share with you 10 easy steps you can take to make sure this is the best (and most organized!) year for all your photo needs:
There are many great moments throughout the year. Knowing when to have your photo sessions can make your life a whole lot easier than to wait until the last minute. Some important photo sessions to keep in mind could be January business headshots, May Mother’s Day photos, June Father’s Day photos, Fall photos for Christmas cards, back to school photos, December “Home for the Holiday” photos, and so much more! (more…)
For many people, home decorating isn’t just a fun hobby; it is what makes a house feel like a home, and allows you to creatively implement your own unique style. Every home is different, and each is decorated in its own way, but there are always certain homes that stand out as memorable. These homes are the ones that hold the precious memories of family photos.
Your family photos can lend a personal touch to your home decor, and create a warm, friendly environment for your guests. Not only do family photos remind you of happy days, events, and momentous occasions, but they are also great conversation starters, and can add a sense of comfort to your home.
Have you ever received your child’s school photos and either you or they (or both of you) were unhappy with the proofs? Maybe they felt uncomfortable with the way they had to sit, the photographer did not make them feel at ease, or in general, they were just having a bad day on school picture day. Whatever the case may be, there is an alternative to those pictures that you can consider that will make both you and your child happy!
Each child, and family, is unique. Let’s face it, school photographers do not have the time to really capture your child’s true personality and character by simply having them pose in a pre-arranged position. This can often cause kids to feel tense, and not let loose to show their true smile and personality.
If your family is a homeschooling family, you may not have the opportunity for school portraits. It is still important for you to capture your kids’ growing up years, and as a professional photographer, Miko Photography can help.
Do you want your photos to stand out and look different than they have in the past? When you book individual or family photos with Miko Photography, we will make sure you get a beautiful portrait of each child that you can proudly hang on your wall or give to family and friends. Contact us today, and we can discuss a special print package for each child!
