MEET THE MODELS
Meet the gorgeous Little Peach Portrait models, here to help give you a few tips on taking the perfect shot.
Follow these tips, and it should be easy! Please make sure that you are happy with the photo sent, as the silhouette, with all its little details, is created directly from your photo.
If your little one struggles to sit still, then a good tip is to take their picture whilst they are watching TV - this can avoid blurring, a strange angle or them looking into camera!
As much as possible, make sure the head is looking straight forward and that the chin is slightly raised (If they are looking down to the floor, you might get a few extra chins!) Make sure you are at their shoulder height, so capturing the photo straight on, not from above or below.
Don’t worry about smoothing away stray hairs, as they are often unique and can add charm. But if hair is long, it can often look more flattering in a silhouette if it is tied up and off the neck and shoulders.
Consider what they are wearing. Hoodies can come across as hunchbacks when in silhouette. So either a thin top, small collar or bare skin if you prefer the shoulder to show.
Try and make sure that the background is as plain as possible ideally a wall, but don’t worry too much as long as the photo is clear it shouldn’t be a problem. Camera phone photos are perfectly fine, just as long as you send them in the highest resolution possible.
