Good preparation is key to looking good in your photos. This page provides useful tips to prepare for your family photo shoot.
We’re not sure what to do. We’ve never done a photo-shoot before.
Please go through my gallery of photos, so that you get an idea of what the pictures generally look like. Also read my suggestions on what to wear. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any doubts / questions in mind. Remember to trust your instincts and be comfortable. That will come across in your pictures. Please read through the other questions and answers on this page. Good preparation will ensure that you get good pictures of your family!
We’ve never visited the location before.
That’s perfectly alright. Please familiarize yourself with the map of the location by checking online. Also make a note of where the car parks and toilets are.
What will be happening on the day of the photo-shoot?
It will be a location photo shoot outdoors or in your own home. It will be a relaxed and informal session. There will not be much awkward posing, as candid pictures are more my style! I want you to be yourselves and enjoy your family time just as you would if you were at the park for a day out. Babies and toddlers can’t always be told how to pose. I will let them be themselves and I will take pictures by anticipating their moves and being ready for the moments. Bring food and drinks for the kids. If they have any small toys that are their favourite, it is a good idea to bring those too.
What time is best for the photo-shoot?
The best time that you can schedule the photo shoot is when your child is fed and well rested. Kids tire quickly compared to adults and it is necessary for us to prioritize their needs first.
What should we wear for the photo shoot?
I recommend wearing what you are comfortable with. Please read this article with detailed suggestions and tips on how you can plan your outfits for the photo session.
