What to Expect From Your Little Ones During Our Photo Session.
It is so easy to stress out about how you think your child "should" act during our photo session. Let me tell you no two children are the same and I of all people understand that they can be unpredictable with a wide range of emotions. I am prepared for it all.
I generally plan for the first 15 to 30 minutes for us to get comfortable with each other and photographing them while still holding their attention. If I get more then that I am happy. I will instruct you to be with your child and I will document your interaction with some gentle posing. Then I like to let them run wild and be active so that I can capture them as they are now.
It is so important to prep your children for the session. Let them know a friend is going to be taking photos. Make it a special occasion, and try not to bribe them, but offer them a fun family activity for afterward.
TIPS FOR YOUR SESSION:
- Bring a dry snack and some water
- Put your little one down for a nap or quiet time before the session.
- Prepare them for a friend to photograph them.
- Relax and have fun!!
One of the best parts of having children is being able to act like a big kid ourselves, share our own experiences with our little ones and create new ones with them.
In the end, it is most important to relax and enjoy our session.
