Parents: it's easy to take lackluster formal pictures of your child who is headed off to prom or ball.
Here are some tips & tricks to help up your game!
Sure you can take the shot straight on.
But have you tried squatting down low and shooting up? This angle A) makes everybody look taller, and B) can highlight some fun shoe choices.
Don't be afraid to take pictures in full direct sun. This gives your shots a bit of pop that you won't get in the shade.
It's ok to look away
People don't always have to be smiling and looking at the camera!
Personality is everything
Yes, the outfits are important for spring formals. But emotion and personality are what will make you LOVE your pictures.
Finally, get this one.
Your daughter doesn't need a date. Just borrow any random person's hand who happens to be in a suit and lean over in front of them to take the shot.
This will end up being one of her favorite pictures from the night. I swear.
