I do not usually shoot people/portriats so this was a bit new to me. Since most of my pics are for the web or get printed 8x10 it easy to crop. I did a family shoot and they are wanting sizes from wallets to 16x20. I guess I'm a little lost when it comes to cropping and keeping aspect ratio. How do I do these pics so they could be printed in multiple sizes? Do I not crop at all and let them decide the print size, or do i crop all them at multiple sizes.
Thanks

I'd say frame loose, so you have enough empty space to crop down. You can always crop out empty space and keep the 3:2 ratio, but that gives you the flexibility for 8x10, 11x14, etc. or make them crop if they're getting their own prints. Or if they're ordering prints through you, you can crop.

This - leave some space to accommodate cropping.
