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, Joel Sartore takes the mystery out of photographing 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 the color and chaos of 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.


Unlike similar guides, 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. Digital photographers will appreciate tips on editing techniques, album innovations, archiving methods, and printing. Sartore's charisma and humor make learning a pure delight.
