I'm going to go with no for the majority of you. Well, with a few easy steps all that can be simplified. I found this tips from one of my vendors, but I have tweaked them a bit based on some of what I try to do since I do tend to have a lot of images from my phone and my cameras.

What to wear, what to wear? I feel like I'm constantly standing in my closet staring blankly and completely overwhelmed with the idea of selecting one outfit. Now take that thought and multiply it by five.

We all love to display our gorgeous family portraits. Since I photograph my family a lot, I am no different. So I decided to put together these tips to help you put together your own gallery wall.
How many pictures do you have of your family squinting or with harsh shadows on their face? I know I have more than I can count. While you need light in order for your camera to capture images, high noon with the sun blazing can actually be too much.
What's the number one thing I hear as a portrait photographer? Just make me look good! LOL. Okay, okay, I get it. In fact, I think I've said that one before, as well. We all want to look good in our portraits, especially when you go to a professional to get them done.
