Last week we talked through the hard side of getting photos taken and two of our tips to help rock your mini sessions. Tonight, Mark and I are sharing our final two tips to help everyone enjoy the process!
3. Choose an incentive in advance and encourage towards it.
Let’s be real. Everyone likes a reward. Here are a few of our favorites that we use.
Doing a family portrait session? Have everyone get dressed up and ready for the portrait session and then reward with a special family dinner after. You’re already dressed up and you’ve had a long day – so enjoy time with one another around the table to commemorate the special occasion – and save you the washing dishes afterwards.
4. Expect some craziness.
Yup. It’s going to happen. The car will be on empty when you thought it was full. One of your kids will fall asleep on the car ride over or desperately need a restroom. Work will want you to stay late. Traffic will be worse than you thought it would be. We totally get it. We’d recommend that you plan to show up 10 – 15 minutes early that way when something doesn’t go as plan, no big deal. Also, with the expectation stage – your job is to get everyone to the portrait session and once you get there, our job is to put you all at ease and have some fun.
We hope you found these tips helpful! Comment below on other tips you’ve used in the past. We look forward to hanging out with you soon!
