We know how overwhelming portraits can be. We’ve been on your side of the camera. That’s why we’re taking a few moments to tell you how to get the most out of your mini portrait session. See if any of these resonate with you:
We struggle with our own family photos and keeping them current (GASP). Yup, it’s true! So this week and next week we'll be sharing our the top tips we’ve personally found to help mini portrait sessions go smoother because we all know there will be some bumps in the road.
1. Pick the outfits in advance.
Yeah… deciding what to wear on the day of the shoot in the last few hours leading up to it is probably not a good idea. We’d recommend that you pick a color scheme and style your family in outfits that will complement each other instead of everyone wearing one color. Not sure what this looks like, we got you. Check out our Pinterest board we’ve created for you. The idea is that we recognize that each of you are individuals and yet you’re all connected – so show that off.
Bonus tip: Dress a step or two fancier than your normal, everyday clothes. These photos are the ones you’ll use for years to come (graduation, wedding day, anniversary, funeral, facebook birthday blasts) so we want you to look your best.
2. Set realistic expectations for everyone.
