All good portrait sessions take preparation. Here are a few quick tips for making sure your children’s and family portraits look great.
First of all make sure your kids get a good night’s sleep. Everyone looks and feels better when they are well rested and this shows through in the final images. Also trying to schedule the shoot for a less stressful day is recommended so everyone will be in a better mood and better images will result.
Patience is also a must for children’s portrait sessions. Don’t be discouraged if the kids aren’t cooperative at first during the session. Usually it takes some time for the kids to warm up and be available for the best images of the session.
If you are having me photograph multiple children make sure their outfits are matching. Similar colors but not the exact same outfit look the best. For example wearing all cool or warm colors looks great.
