Who doesn't like to capture happy moments? The phrase, "take a picture, it lasts longer" came from somewhere, after all, but it's true. When you're enjoying yourself, you want it to last forever. Maybe that's why we take a picture, write about it, or paint it. It really does last longer. And it's often the memories that were recorded in photos that tend to stand out the most, there may be a scent or a song that brings back a memory, but more often than not, it's an image. Maybe that's why Mom and Grandma were so pushy about having family pictures taken. I have to admit, those planned photos were not my favorite. But now that I have growing children of my own, who will soon be leaving, I understand how these people become my happy moment that I want to keep close. So I have become the pushy mom and will one day be the pushy grandma yelling to gather everyone for family pictures. Whether it's a family photo, you may or may not be excited about, or you discover an artsy wall downtown, or a breathtaking waterfall off the beaten path, here are 5 ways to look your best as you capture that happy moment.
