Today I’m sharing three little tips on prepare your kids for a family photoshoot.
pack a snack
Before your session, pack a bag with snacks, water and any small objects (like toys or lollipops) that might help us get their attention when it’s time for them to look at the camera. Also, when choosing a toy pick the one you don’t mind being in some shots.
talk to your child
Prepare them for what’s to come before the session starts. Explain how much the photos mean to you so they know to be on their best behavior.
plan a reward
A lot of families discuss and pick something fun in advance as a treat after the session if they’re good listeners, like an ice cream cone, for example.
Give them (and yourself!) grace! They’re little, and I know that some days don’t always go as planned.
I’ve seen it all and will make sure to get you great photos, regardless of their moods. Treat family photoshoot like a fun family activity. If mom and dad are having fun, kids will follow, and we all will have a blast during our short time together!
My goal is to make this as fun and stress-free as it possibly can be for you and your family!
P.S. Here are some examples of my recent family sessions to encourage you!
