We all know putting together a photoshoot can be stressful. What to wear? Will the kids have a meltdown? Will the photos turn out? As a Dana Point Photography specialist, even for my own family, it’s stressful. My hubby hates it, my boys have a 20 second attention span and I usually look like a goon. But there are some things you can do to help make it stress free.
For starters, let me take care of anything I can.
I offer wardrobe for everyone (except hubby’s but they’re easy usually), use my wardrobe options. That alone is a huge sigh of relief knowing you don’t have to shop around and inevitably return things.
I offer hair and makeup and she can even come to your home. Do it!! It will make you feel so much better about yourself and in turn you’ll smile brighter during your session.
I bring bribery! Depending on your kiddos ages, I bring puffs or fruit snacks or tic-tacs. These little snacks help your little one keep going for another shot.
Let me lead your kiddos! Sometimes they just need calm and quiet, rather than yelling and dancing and I can usually tell when it’s time for a change. We’ll get the shots either way so just follow my lead.
During most any session, it’s hectic and you’ll leave feeling like it was crazy town. I assure you 1000% we got beautiful images even though the crazy. I have NEVER had a session that I didn’t get any good shots. I wouldn’t let you leave the session if I knew we didn’t get anything good. You’ll be amazed at the beautiful images we created! Trust me!
Promise your kids and mostly yourself, a treat afterward! You deserve it too! Photoshoots are a lot of work! If it’s ice cream for the kids, talk about the flavors they’ll get. Distract them from just smiling at the camera. You’re dressed up and looking good so for yourself, make it a date night with the hubs. Cheers to your beautiful family and the magic we created!
Lastly, relax! Trust the process. Trust me, the artist. You’re paying me to make magic and I promise you I will make it! You’ll love your photos and I’ll do anything I can to make sure of that!
