"At certain moments on a trip, on a holiday, or during those first weeks of parenthood, for example have you ever wished you were a National Geographic photographer? In this unique guide, staff photographer Joel Sartore takes the mystery out of making extraordinary pictures of kids with a hilarious tour through his own family albums. Sartore s photographs delight and inspire, from the first moments a newborn enters the house to Halloween parades, from visits with family and friends to fireworks on the Fourth of July. Easy-to-follow tips and instructions make the creative process simple, helping parents approach photography in a whole new way. Digital photographers will appreciate tips on editing techniques, album innovations, archiving methods, and printing. Sartore s charisma and humor make learning a pure delight. Unlike competitive titles, Photographing Your Family is lavishly illustrated to show the many ways to make pictures, how Sartore captured these images specifically, and the philosophies a world-class photographer brings to his work at home with emphasis on the contributions that relatives, friends, and pets can make to the story that is family.

I read this book from cover to cover, which is something I didn't expect to do. It taught me so much about photo composition and how to use my digital camera. I have begun practicing his techniques and recommendations already.
