When it comes to family photos, I want you to have it all
When you book a family session with me you can expect to start the session off with your traditional family portrait poses. I use this as a time to shake off all those awkward vibes. From there, we move on to some "prompts". I'll prompt you to walk toward me while holding hands, then start bumping into each other's hips. This is where the genuine smiles and laughs come in. We'll do tickle fights, London Bridges, a game of chase and so much more! I think it is so important to have both types of photos in your gallery. Photo sessions with me are meant to be a fun experience. All of this gives you not just posed family portraits, but fun memories that are forever frozen in time through candid, lifestyle type photos.
I'm afraid my kids won't cooperate, what should I do?
Don't stress, Mom, I've got this! Try to relax and not worry about the kiddos during the session. We're going to do posed photos first, with the promise to the kids that we'll be doing some fun games next. Prior to your session, talk up the photo session experience. Let them know we're going to get some nice photos for your walls, but we're also going to make it fun by doing some silly activities. I promise, it will be fine and you'll walk away with some wonderful family photos.
What if it's raining on session day?
If it's raining or windy come session time, we'll reschedule. Same if anyone in the family is sick. It is not the end of the world if we need to reschedule. Your comfort and health is a priority to me!
How should we dress for our family session?
What makes you feel amazing? Wear that! If you wear something that is out of your comfort zone, that's going to show in your photos. If you need some guidance on outfits, color combos, and mixing and matching - just shoot me a message. I'm happy to help!
Do you have location suggestions?
I do! I actually have a Location Guide with sample photos that I will send to you once you have confirmed your booking. It is SO handy to get to see locations how they look through my camera. But don't forget about places like your own home and yard and locations that are meaningful to you.
