Arrive early! Please arrive a little before your session time so you are ready to shoot AT your scheduled time (meaning having your kids in their clothing, hair fixed, face wiped, etc) Sessions will be booked back to back so if you are late, you will only have the remaining time to complete your session. This is most important! Shooting time will be 20 minutes. If you have any questions, please let us know beforehand. Let your kids run wild. It’s ok. They’re kids. Once we get a few posed images, let them be themselves. Try to avoid telling them to say “cheese”. Instead, tell them a funny joke, or anything you know that will make them giggle instead. Play with them, get goofy, snuggle, throw them in the air, chase them around…just play with them as you would normally do and let me capture these moments.
Don’t think of it as a photoshoot. Think of it as a few minutes of uninterrupted time with your family or loved one, hugging, kissing, snuggling, laughing, running, twirling…no work, phones or email. Just a few, sweet moments together. Relaxed families = beautiful photos. We start right away with a few posed family shots, but quickly work our way to very easy-going family interactions with lots of candids, laughter and fun. No need for the kids to smile and look at the camera for every shot. Our goal is to capture the essence and love in your interactions.
