What should I wear?
A primary concern for most people, follow these Do’s and Don’ts for successful wardrobe planning!
DO Wear something that you feel most like yourself in
DO Think in terms of colours that coordinate well and compliment one another - but this doesn’t have to be too ‘matchy-matchy’
DO Wear slightly more makeup than you might normally
DON’T Wear competing colors and patterns - paisley, polkadots, and plaid in one image can be a little overwhelming on the eyes!
DON’T Have seasonal confusion! If someone is in a summer dress and the other in a jacket and boots your images won’t feel cohesive
Help! My kids are young/ wild/ free spirits!
And you’re worried they won’t co-operate? Not to panic! Kids wills be kids, and in our experiences giving them a few minutes to get the wiggles out works wonders for the rest of the session. We’ve photographed enough families with children of all ages and abilities to handle the situation. If the adults stay calm, cool, and positive then chances are even the most uncooperative kiddos will eventually be interested in all the exciting picture taking that’s going on. This is also a good time to mention any sensitivities we should be aware of - with any member of the family - ahead of your session.
I’m super awkward and un-photogenic - what can I do?
Nonsense! Trust us when we say that everyone feels far more awkward in front of the camera then they actually are, but we understand your apprehension. Take a deep breath, try to relax, and trust that we’ll move you through poses that are most flattering. And ps, everyone is photogenic!
When are Family Sessions scheduled?
Primarily natural light portrait photographers, we love scheduling in the early morning and late afternoon. With young kids, we recommend morning sessions or working around nap schedules. The best time for happy kiddos will always trump the best time for perfect light!
