- Take several photos of your kids in costume, trick-or-treating, or at their school party. Capture the entire season in pictures.
- Make sure you take vertical and horizontal angles, so you can really customize the design of the pages in your photo book.
- Include close-ups of everyone’s faces as well as full-length images.
- Take candid shots as well as posed pictures. These are often the best ones. Watch for moments you want to capture, like a shared giggle with their sibling, the expression kids make as they are decorating a craft project or the look of determination in scooping out seeds from a pumpkin.
- Include photos of your pets, particularly if you get them a costume too!
- Take photos of the family together. Ask someone to get the shot for you or use your selfie-skills, but always include yourself in the memories.
