Me Ra Koh, author of the book “Your Family in Pictures” and a professional photographer who has had her work featured on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” gives us her handy tips that will help set you up for success. Finally, you’ll be able to get photographs that are just as good as the memories that made them. Flip through the gallery to get the scoop from Mom.me.

Capture Emotions

Whether the emotions are "overjoyed, angry or at peace, black-and-white tones help spotlight the emotion," Koh says.

KEY TIPS: When deciding to convert or shoot something in black and white, check to see if the color contrast is strong. "High contrast between highlights and shadows creates drama," says Koh, while the lack of color helps the photograph "transcend time."
