How to Take a Great Family Portrait.
1.  Pack a Prep Kit: for those last minute touch ups and emergencies. Be sure to include: hairbrush/comb, bobby pins, hairspray, blotting wipes and powder to rid excess oil and to avoid being shiny, concealer for blemishes, lint roller to pick up any extra dust or hair, fabric tape for any snags or tears, wrinkle release spray for a fresh look, stain remover pen for any spills and a detergent pen.

2.  Keep Everyone Busy and Happy: snacks to keep your family happy (but nothing that stains), pocket games for the kids to play while you wait, floss picks to remove any leftover food from teeth, a mirror to check out your final look and headache medicine just in case. Have a nice meal together when you're done, or a fun outing where the kids can run out all their energy afterwards.

3. What To Wear: be matchy, but not too matchy. Establish a color palette and style tone and allow your family members to pick out what clothing item will complement the theme. This will allow all family members to feel like they had a say in this year’s family picture and can showcase their own personality. Stick to solid colors and stay away from bold patterns. Too bright of colors or loud prints can take the attention away from your family’s smiling faces. Wear dark and solid colors to look slimmer.

4. Schedule Hair Appointments a Week In Advance: You want everyone to look their best, so make sure that everyone gets their hair cut, highlighted and styled a few days to a week in advance. Check out the JCPenney salon the Sunday before you go for free kid's haircuts, and to schedule an appointment.

5. Don’t Forget Your Family Pet: Select JCP portrait studios accommodate pets! Call your local studio to see if you can bring in your furry family member and any special instructions and grab a matching bow or a bandana for your furry friend to join your family’s pose.
