It’s Photo Tip Tuesday! I missed last week, but it’s still heavy on my mind that there is a desire for more photography posts out there–I’ve made a list of things to share coming up!!!  Today, I’m sharing my article, How to Photograph Family Gatherings, that is over at the New York Institute of Photography.

A lot of us are getting together for Thanksgiving or Christmas with friends and family, and will bring the camera. I’m sharing tips on how to go beyond the normal shots, and telling a story with photographs at get togethers. So come on over and read the full article!

    Loved the article! I too am the documentarian of our family (along with my dad)! I just love to go back through old photos and start at photo 1 and scroll through them all. It’s like I’m reliving that day all over again. I just love the power of a photo!!!

    So adorable! Thanks for the inspiration! I, too, have 3 brothers and am the only girl in my family. I love how you captured an easy-going moment between you and your brothers. Very light-hearted. Love it! I will have to try the same with my brothers the next time we are all together.
