WHAT DO WE WEAR?
Before your session you will want to start by preparing outfits. You can get some outfit ideas on my pinterest board. What you wear makes a difference in how you’ll be photographed. If you wear casual clothing, you’ll feel more comfortable playing around. If you wear fancier clothing, your photo session will naturally be more formal. Keep this in mind when choosing what to wear for your photo session. I am always happy to make custom suggestions, or to look at your outfits and provide feedback and suggestions.
PHOTO SESSION DAY – WHAT TO EXPECT
I know this day can be a financial investment, but it’s more than that. Family photos like this are ones you’ll treasure for years. You’ll want to make sure everyone is prepared and ready to make the most of our time together. This means a few things. First, make sure to schedule your session during a time when the kids won’t be too tired or too hungry. In other words, come well-rested and fed! Depending on your location of choice, there will be good and bad times to photograph. I will make suggestions on when we’ll get the best outcome.
During your session, we’ll take the first few minutes to do family formals. This will help us work through any shyness that the kids may be experiencing. After this we’ll play some games to get those smiles and real emotion going, and we’ll end with some one on ones of the kids, as well as some of the parent(s). Don’t worry about your kids behaving perfectly during our session, or giving perfect smiles. As nice as those moments are, embrace their unique and genuine personalities for who/what they are. The less pressured they feel, the much more natural your photos will turn out.
AFTER PHOTO SESSION DAY – WHAT TO EXPECT
After your photo session you will be anxious to see your photos, and I’ll be anxious to share them with you! It generally takes 2-3 weeks to prepare your images. Once they are ready I will set up an online gallery that will allow you to look through your photos and make your selections.
