How to Assure Great Group Photographs Minus The Pain


 WATERHOUSE PHOTOGRAPHY recently wrote about creating your composite family or group photograph when not everyone was available at the same time – or even was. Your images are taken at different times of smaller groups. Right there and then you select your favorite image. That assures everyone is looking great and you love how you look on the photo.   We all know how it goes with photos of 15 or so people. When the photographer – after one hour of trying and lots of groaning from the kids – finally gets that image where everyone is at least generally looking at the camera with eyes open, you hate how you look.  But by then everyone else is so tired you dare not ask to have the image taken again and just go with it. The composite approach assures great group photographs where everyone looks stunning and is happy

An Added Advantage – Individual Groups

The additional advantage is that as the photographs where taken of individual groups – you can also have smaller individual group photographs printed. You take advantage of paying for only one session, going through one posing process but doubling the bang for the buck with your closer group

Book Your Group Session Now

So, as a reminder – book that group photo session with WATERHOUSE PHOTOGRAPHY and have all the joys of a memorable photograph and experience with you personally looking stunning.

A Variation On This Theme

The other day a lovely customer of ours came into WATERHOUSE PHOTOGRAPHY with a request to photograph herself and her brother for a framed photograph for their mother’s birthday. The conversation went something like this:

Her:          Hi! I would like to get my brother and myself photographed

Us:            OK

Her:           We need to be on the same photograph

Us:            OK

Her:           But my brother is in Florida

Us:            OK

Her:           My brother is not coming up to Michigan for the shoot

Us:            OK!

Her:           And I would like both of us on the beach in the photograph

Us:            What a fantastic idea. Let’s do it!

Ready – Steady – Go!

WATERHOUSE PHOTOGRAPHY contacted the brother immediately – voice mail and text message.  A time was set up in a photo studio in Florida for his shoot.  We then proceeded with some lovely portraits of our client who selected her favorite.  We contacted the photographer at the studio in Florida and forwarded the selected image as orientation for his shoot.  We then received the photograph of the brother back and created a really fabulous gift for mom of her two children – who live miles apart – on the beach.

 Think about it. Is this not a great opportunity for all of us to create a wonderful gift for our loved ones. Contact WATERHOUSE PHOTOGRAPHY and let us get the ball rolling

2011 Tree Lighting in Downtown Auburn Hills Michigan with Waterhouse Photography

December 2nd, 2011 and another perfect photo night for Waterhouse Photography in downtown Auburn Hills Michigan – the home of Waterhouse Photography’s full service studio! Clear skies, holiday lights, magnificent tree,  Mr. and Mrs. Claus and hundreds of Auburnites  – all wrapped in a wonder festive atmosphere warmed by an open fire. Once again, a well-organized annual event thanks to the city. Mr. and Mrs. Claus  arrived  on time  thanks to the Auburn Hills fire brigade. Our 6th term mayor James McDonald  opened the event, culminating with a round of  applause as he announced the timing of the ground breaking ceremony for the newly planned downtown multi-storey building. Songs were sung, hands were warmed and cheeks were flushed. It was a fabulous event for Waterhouse Photography to capture – dragged shutter, fish eye lens and flash photography. Followed by complementary photographs with Santa by Waterhouse Photography in a warmly decorated historical building. The Waterhouse Photography photo session was a resounding success. 100 photos were planned but 250 were handed out!
