The Design Aglow Posing Guide For Family Portrait Photography In Stores TODAY

It's official: The Design Aglow Posing Guide for Family Portrait Photography, published by Random House, is in bookstores now. And it's already #2 on Amazon's Children's Photography Best Sellers List! (A special thank you to all those who have already pre-ordered the book...keep an eye on your mailboxes, as it should be arriving very soon!) The book's subtitle--100 Modern Ideas for Photographing Newborns, Babies, Children, and Families--illustrates its goal: to feature a pose a spread, along with insightful (but totally achievable!) guidance from 19 photographers that are the best in our biz. Here's what we love about the #ThePosingGuide (in addition to the fact that it already has a hashtag): crack it open to a page, any page really, and you'll find practical, concrete advice. Whether you've been shooting professionally for 8 months or 8 years, you're sure to discover a kernel of wisdom, to experience a “hey, I need to try that” moment from the smart ideas collected inside. It's a encyclopedia of inspiration that you can dip in and out of. Or you can read the whole thing cover to cover. That works too. Want more great posing guidance? Join us for live Facebook chats with Posing Guide contributors, all this week! Get more details here.

In hindsight, flying into Paris would've been much easier, especially after a long flight and jet lag. But easy doesn't make great memories! The train was actually quite convenient and a great way to relax after a long flight. You can buy snacks (and WINE) for your 2 hour trip without even leaving the station.
