    Family portrait photography mistake 09: Mis-matched couples

    Family Portrait Ideas for Holidays and Events

    As much as you may dislike your sister’s choice of partner, she’s unlikely to be happy if you separate them in every shot.

    Ideally put the grandparents near the centre of the frame with everyone around them.

    If your brother turns up with a new girlfriend of two weeks standing then by all means take a few photos with her in the group, but don’t assume that they’re going to be life-partners and make sure you get a few shots without her in the frame.

    He’ll thank you if they split up three weeks later.
