Nothing could be worse than a child who's already uncomfortable in dress clothes than to have to wait until the scene is set. Allow everyone to dress comfortably, but eschew crazy prints and whites, which can make you look bigger than you are. Angling your body to the side while turning your face and shoulders to the camera can minimize double chins and extra weight, if you want to look thinner. Whether you use a professional or not, shoot outdoor pictures either in the early morning or late afternoon, and be sure the light is behind the photographer. Cracking jokes or telling silly stories can help "cut the cheese" in pictures, making smiles more natural and less posed. Be proud and show off your family beautifully this holiday!
