Tips For A Great Shoot!

Some tips ensure that your photo session is picture perfect!

  1. Relax….it’s easy to get stressed out before and during a photo session, trying to make sure your hair is perfect, your outfit is finely pressed and that your children are being perfect little angels. The less you stress, the better your photos will be. With little ones, they can feel your frustration when they aren’t doing what you want them to do. The best thing we can do to get amazing photos is let them be in their element and capture natural moments.

  2. Timing is important. If you’re not a morning person, don’t try to schedule a morning session. Think about nap times for children and try to plan around those as well.

  3. Styling…make it your own! Bring outfit changes for versatility, both casual and dressy. Solid colors are always great. With clothing, try to avoid busy patterns. Also, don’t forget about accessories! Necklaces, earrings, sunglasses, hats….these are a fun way to show off your personality and style!

  4. Personality…we want to capture personality. If your child has a favorite blanket, toy or teddy bear, bring it. This will make them more comfortable. With senior portraits, it’s always great to include your interests, hobbies or sports into the photos. Depending on location, pets are also great to include.

  5. With little ones and babies, it’s a good idea to bring snacks that aren’t messy and a pacifier if they use one. Also, if there are any toys that make them smile or laugh, or noise makers that catch their attention, bring those as well.
