Photo Day Tips

I always look forward to shooting each session I do — kids being themselves and doing what they do just about guarantees amazing photos. However, there are a few things you can do to help ensure a great family photo shoot and make the memories we capture that much more special:
 
  • Choose bright, colorful outfits, but at the same time, try to avoid busy patterns that will take the focus away from where it belongs: on your kids!
  • Feel free to bring a change of outfits - it's never a bad idea to have several different looks during the same session.
  • For outdoor shoots in the park or at the beach, a towel or blanket and picnic (or at least some snacks) can be a great way for kids to get comfortable and refuel between takes.
  • Make sure the kids are well rested and full of energy. Cranky kids will probably be less apt to cooperate (and really, who can blame them? I don't follow instructions so well when I'm tired either!).
 
Following these tips will help make sure you end up with cherished memories and print-worthy keepsakes that your family can enjoy or generations.
