Spring has sprung, which means it’s time to come out of hibernation and gather the family for all of the season’s many milestones. Whether you’re celebrating Easter, Mother’s Day, or your newest graduate, you’ll want to make sure you capture all of those special moments — and you don’t even need a fancy camera to do it.
Even if you’re just snapping candids with your cell, you can get great shots that you can later use for festive holiday greeting cards, wall photos, or exciting announcements.
Here are a few photography tips to make sure you get the best photos of your next family event:
- Consider a tripod: Yes, there are tripods for your iPhone, and yes, they’re actually pretty affordable. Setting up a small, flexible table-top tripod on the picnic table or another commonly-used surface makes it easy to capture a steady photo at a natural angle. Here are some more smartphone gadgets to consider.
- Play with poses: Getting your loved ones to demonstrate genuine emotion makes for truly rewarding photos. Prompt your partygoers with an inside joke, or ask one of them to tell another one a secret. Capturing an honest-to-goodness giggle is just about as good as it gets! Continue reading

Finding Walden is one of our beloved Pearistas. She just had her son’s fifth birthday party and used Pear Tree Greetings to set the tone for the party. Her party is full of kids birthday party ideas so be sure to visit her blog for the full party.
Joshua just turned five, you guys. Five feels so huge! It really feels like just yesterday I was planning his Super Mario Super Birthday Party but no, nope. I was recently tasked with planning a FIFTH birthday party.
Pear Tree Greetings has some perfect Superhero Birthday Invitations in their kids’ birthday invitations line right now, and I knew that they would help me give Joshua a superhero birthday party with a twist. Invites! Ordered! BAM!
I also threw some Superhero Thank You cards into the cart so that we can practice teaching gratitude and penmanship. (Being thankful and sensory practice! BOOM!)
And then I fell into full on party planning psychosis on Pinterest and we started the busiest month ever. EVER.
While I was browsing the Pear Tree site, I saw that they’ve recently launched a line of kids’ party decor and scoped it out. I found kids party decorations that matched the superhero invites and a coordinating set with a slightly different style. I bought them both and threw in some searching for heros favor tags for good measure.
Real cards created by real people like you!
The graduation announcements are pouring in and this one stood out for its bright red color and fun, candid photos. (Plus, the matching yard sign is hard to miss!) We asked Tristan’s proud mom to share a little bit about her son.
