Photo Instructions

Please submit your photo(s) via email by directly replying to your order confirmation email.   If you do not see the email please check your spam or promotions folders, otherwise send a new email to Elizabeth@RIsunshine.com and be sure to include your full name.

Please only submit the number of photos you have paid for so we know which photo you would like to use.

Now get out your camera or smartphone and head outside! 

(If you are submitting a pre-existing family photo please ensure it meets the guidelines below.)

Pay attention to detail when preparing:

  • Plan your wardrobe and wear coordinating colors if you'd like! White, black, blues, greys, purples and greens look lovely on anyone, any time of year, and flatter any complexion.
  • Take a little extra time to get everyone ready and groomed. Especially try to tame any hair flyaways.
  • Use a tripod and camera timer so you can be in the shoot too!
  • Smile! 
  • Don't forget to include the tulips you may have just picked-up!

Find a shady spot in your area where you will be covered in shade. Shade is preferable but not a deal breaker! The background doesn't matter. Poof! It will be gone! If the weather is overcast you can take the photos in an open area. Take multiple photos so you can pick the best ones! 

iPhone Users: To focus tap the screen on your subject's face and then use the slider bar to help get the correct exposure. Remember brighter is better! And do not use portrait mode please.

For bench backgrounds please form a tight group and point the camera at eye level. Make sure you are facing the camera and include your feet in the shot! 

For non-bench backgrounds you can include your whole body standing, feet or no feet! That's up to you! Just don't stand in long grass.

Examples of at home photos:

 
 
 
 
  
 e-Delivery time will depend on demand.  Currently we estimate a 3 day turnaround from background photo selection.
 

These photos are meant to be fun virtual representations of you in the tulip fields! Your lighting choice and camera angel are the key aspects to focus on to make this the most realistic it can be. We will use our Photoshop experience to deliver our best work! Of course if you are not 100% satisfied we will try our hardest to make it right or issue a refund.
