Speaking for myself, I’m a lifestyle family photographer. That means I’m all about capturing those real, candid moments that make your family unique. So don’t worry about trying to make everything perfect – I promise you, those little quirks and “imperfections” are what make your family so incredibly awesome. My job is to showcase that awesomeness and turn it into art.  Trust me, you and your kiddos are in good hands.

Be sure to tell your kiddos about the session ahead of time, it’ll make a huge difference!

Kids do best when they know what to expect, so let them know that we’re going to have a super fun time hanging out together, and that I’m just a friend who’s going to be taking some awesome photos of them. And don’t forget to give them a heads up that we’ll be doing a few different poses – that way, they won’t be caught off guard when I ask them to sit or stand in different ways. I promise it’ll be quick, and we’ll have lots of fun along the way.

Another thing you can do to help your kiddos get excited for the session is to show them some examples of past family photos. Even if they’re just iPhone pics, it’ll give them an idea of what we’re going for and help build some anticipation for the final product. And hey, who doesn’t love seeing photos of themselves?!

So there you have it – a couple more tips to make your family photo session awesome. I can’t wait to work with you and capture some amazing memories!
