The season for family portraits has arrived! And that’s why I thought it would be a good time to revisit a couple articles I wrote earlier in the year relevant to these types of sessions.
The first article, Planning for a Successful Photo Session, covers the basics of your session. It talks about everything from what to wear, when to plan your photo session. where to hold it and what to bring. If your family portrait happens to include a few toddlers, the article, The Perfect Toddler Photograph will help you manage your expectations and also serve as a reminder that it’s almost always going better than you think! And lastly, be sure to read Including Pets in Your Family Photos if you’re bringing along any furry friends to photograph.
One last tip for your fall portrait session: arrive early. This will give your children and/pets a chance to get acclimated to the area and explore before posing for the camera!
