Here is my little peach Elvi demonstrating the best way to take photos to get a perfect portrait. (I had to pay him with a lolly to do this! )
A FEW MORE LITTLE POINTERS:
SITTING STILL: If your little one struggles to sit still, then take their picture whilst they are watching TV - this can avoid blurring, a strange angle or them looking into camera!
HAIR: 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.
CLOTHING: 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 silhouette to be a smooth outline.
BACKGROUND: 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.
