Family photo ideas and tips

It’s almost a new year and it’s a great time to get some new family photos. Stop by Kid to Kid to pick up some adorable outfits to coordinate your photo shoot. Here are some great tips and some cute photo ideas!

Family photo tips:

  • Plan ahead! Be sure to plan where you will take photos and be prepared with any changes of clothes or snacks before heading out. This will ensure less tantrums and happier photos
  • Color coordinate. A coordinated wardrobe looks great and brings family photos together. Try to coordinate outfits based on a color of style.
  • Find a photographer you’re comfortable with. Whether it’s a family friend or a professional, be sure you’re comfortable with the person holding the camera.
  • Get outside! In-studio shots are great, but it’s sometimes easier to relax when taking photos outside. Be prepared for changes in weather and dress appropriately.
  • Don’t stress. Don’t worry about getting a perfect photo. Relax and have fun and a great photo will happen!

Cute photo ideas

Don’t be afraid of the weather!

 Try different angles.

Have a prop like feathers or leaves.

Get silly!

What we’re thankful for …

Blog3GiveThanks

With Thanksgiving just one week away, we at Kid to Kid are feeling so grateful! Here’s a list of 8 things we’re especially thankful for right now:

1. Moms – because everybody needs at least one person who’ll love them and cheer for them no matter what.

2. Freedom – so we can be ourselves.

3. Can openers – because honestly, have you ever tried to open a can without one? Amiright?

4. Education – so we can learn, grow, and accomplish our dreams.

5. Chocolate – #NeedISayMore

6. Good friends – The kind that make your cheeks ache from smiling too much.

7. Beaches – especially warm beaches. In November.

8. Our shoppers and sellers! – because Kid to Kid couldn’t exist without YOU. We love to bring gently used kids’ things to families at low prices, and we REALLY love paying cash for kids’ clothes and toys. How could we do our two favorite things without our shoppers and our sellers?

Now we want to know, what are YOU grateful for? Tell us in the comments below.
