Prepping for your Family Session

Capturing the magic of family moments is an art, especially when little ones are involved!

Here are some tips to ensure a smooth and enjoyable photography session with your young crew:

1. **Bring Snacks & Comfort Items:** Keep those smiles going by having their favorite snacks and comfort items handy. It's a great way to keep everyone happy and content.

2. **Choose Comfortable Outfits:** Opt for outfits that are not only adorable but also comfortable. This will help the little ones move freely and enjoy the session.

3. **Timing is Key:** Schedule your session during a time when your children are typically well-rested and fed. Happy and relaxed kiddos make for the best photos!

4. **Be Patient & Playful:** Kids will be kids! Embrace the candid moments and let them be themselves. A playful and patient atmosphere often leads to the most genuine smiles.

5. **Bring Props or Toys:** Consider bringing along a favorite toy or a prop to keep the little ones engaged. It adds a personal touch and makes for adorable photos.

6. **Explore the Location Together:** Before the session, explore the location with your kids. Familiarity can make them feel more comfortable and excited during the shoot.

7. **Coordinate, Don’t Match:** Instead of matching outfits, opt for coordinated colors. This adds visual interest without everyone looking identical. I'll send you an email with wardrobe ideas in advance!

8. **Communicate Expectations:** If there are specific poses or moments you want to capture, communicate them with your photographer beforehand. It helps in planning and ensures everyone is on the same page.

Remember, the goal is to capture the unique essence of your family. Embrace the chaos, enjoy the laughter, and cherish the moments that make your family wonderfully yours!
