Tips for Taking Silhouette Photo

When taking the photo for your custom silhouette, make sure the subject is as fully in the frame as possible with his/her full head and neck visible. Background is not a big deal. The silhouette will turn out best if your subject is looking directly ahead in full profile with his/her head fully turned to the side, with a closed mouth (unless you want an open mouth in the final product). Take the photo at the same level as the subject and shoot the photo straight on without angling the camera up or down.
We always try our best to make your photo work and will let you know if your photo isn't up to snuff. We know that little ones move around a lot and aren't great at standing still. When in doubt, send your photo and we'll let you know if it'll work!
