Finally, you’ll be able to get photographs that are just as good as the memories that made them. Flip through the gallery to get the scoop from Mom.me.

Add a Pop of Color

You've picked your location, gathered your subject or subjects, established a time limit so your kids don't get ornery … now think about an element that can easily enhance the image. Here, a simple red balloon contrasts dramatically against the wheat-colored background.

KEY TIPS: Don't have a balloon? A toy, stuffed animal or even a colorful shirt would work just as well.
