So you're looking to update those Family photos? We can help you do that, no sweat!
The first thing you'll want to do is pick a photographer who's work you LOVE! That's the number one, most important thing. You get this right and it's almost certain that you'll be happy with your new photos. But there are a few things to keep in mind if you want to set your shoot up for success (and make your photographer so very happy). Here are a few Do's and Don't to think about before your next Family Photo Shoot:
- Plan ahead: Start thinking about what you're going to wear at least a week in advance. This will give you time to find the right outfits and make sure they fit well.
- Coordinate, don't match: Gone are the days of everyone wearing the exact same thing. Instead, coordinate your outfits by sticking to a color scheme or style that complements each other.
- Consider the location: Think about the location of the photo shoot and choose outfits that will work well in that environment.
- Accessorize: Add some personality to your outfits by adding accessories like scarves, hats, or jewelry.
- Get your hair and makeup done: Getting professional hair and makeup done can add a polished look to your photos and make you feel more confident.
- Wear anything too trendy: You don't want to look back at your photos and cringe at the clothing trends of the time. Stick to classic styles that won't look dated.
- Dress too casually: While it's important to be comfortable, you also want to look put together for your photos. Avoid wearing anything too casual or athletic.
- Overdo the accessories: While accessories can add some flair to your outfits, don't overdo it. Too many accessories can distract from your beautiful faces.
- Forget about the weather: Make sure you're dressed appropriately for the weather conditions, especially if you're taking photos outdoors.
- Show up unprepared: Make sure everyone in your family is well-fed and well-rested before the photo shoot. A cranky toddler or hungry teenager can ruin the mood and the photos.
I hope these tips help you feel more prepared and confident for your next family photo shoot. Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the experience with your loved ones!
