Choosing to get family photos or portraits or scheduling an engagement shoot is always a good choice, however, once you’ve got the photographer booked, deciding what to wear can bring you to a standstill. The importance of taking the time to pick, accessorize, and style your and others’ outfits cannot be overstated. What you wear goes a long way toward creating photos that you love. With that in mind, I’ve put together a few simple guidelines you can use to choose your outfits for any photo session – from individual portraits to family photos to engagement pictures.
MAKEUP, HAIR, ETC.
FINAL THOUGHTS – MAKING IT ENJOYABLE
I know getting photos taken can be a lot of work. First, you have to find the photographer, then find a time that works for everyone. Decide on a location. Choose clothing. Get everyone looking their best. You may do all that and show up, ready to go, but things don’t go as planned. Your teenager is grumpy. The wind is teasing your perfectly styled hair. Your toddler decided their nap wasn’t long enough.
Nothing makes a family photo shoot go south faster than being stressed out.
It is my job to try and help the situation, whether it be with uncooperative weather or uncooperative people (especially little people). If you’ll show up with a good attitude, determined to make our photo session together an enjoyable experience for everyone, I promise we’ll make it work. Having a go-with-the-flow outlook will help you feel better, calm the kids, and give me the chance to give you the best possible end product. I’m so excited to work with you!
