Professional Family Photos
Let’s hear it for moms! The moms who kiss boo boos and read stories, who stay up late to make special costumes, who attend every parent teacher meeting, who go to all the field trips, the bake sales, orthodontist appointments and music concerts. Yes, moms do it all. But what a lot of them don’t do is get in front of the lens. So, when this mom contacted me about professional family photos I was so happy!
The first step to getting professional family photos done, and I think the most important, is the pre consultation. There are a lot of great reasons to have a pre consultation:
- We get to know each other so our first meeting doesn’t involve greeting you from behind my camera.
- I can find out all the special qualities of your children, like hobbies, personality traits, favorite princess or super hero, favorite foods, etc. This helps children to be comfortable around me so we can get images that are really representative of them.
- We get to work together for the styling of your session: wardrobe, location, and overall feeling for your unique family photos
- Together, we choose products you’ll love. I can structure our session based on the products you choose, whether it is to fill a album or one large family pose, so choosing a favorite before hand really helps.
For this session Audrey knew she wanted her professional family photos to showcase the love she has for each of her children and display each of their unique personalities. From the pre consultation, I knew that her children liked to read, as well as take baths. A few trips to the hardware store and I had all the props I needed: a book, a chair, and a bathtub.
This session turned out amazing. I’d love for you to leave a comment and let me know what you think. And if you’d like to call me to start working on your own professional family photos contact me! Use this contact form and we can schedule your pre consultation!
