What to expect in your photo session?

You’re dying to have some photos of your family, but you’re nervous about what to expect. Maybe it’s been years since you were last in front of a camera, maybe you’ve never been in front of a camera. We worked with people on both sides of the spectrum. Have no fear – here are some tips to help you know what to expect in your photo session.

It's quick.

Since we shoot every session with 2 photographers, we are able to start and end every session in about an hour’s time. That’s it! About the same time as watching one of your favorite shows. Is that really enough time to get the perfect shot? You bet it is! We find that after an hour, most people are ready to be done, especially the kiddos. If we can do everything an hour, most people are still in a great mood which makes for the best pictures!

Location matters.

The best advise we can give you is to select a location that everyone is comfortable in. If your family loves hiking and being outside, then that is where you’re going to be most confident. Pick a location that defines you and you’ll end up shining in your photos. Also, if you have young ones, pick a place that is great for running around and having fun. If your kids are having fun, then you’re having fun!

Let it go.

If you’re a parent with young kiddos, the best thing you can do is let them go. Let your kids be who they want to be in the moment. If you’re always telling your kids to look at the camera and smile, they’re going to get frustrated. If the kids are frustrated, then you’re going to get frustrated, and then things start to spiral out of control. We’re really great with kids and we absolutely love playing with them! We have a few tricks up our sleeves to get THE shot. Trust us, we know what kind of pictures you want, and we’ll get them!

After your shoot.

After the shoot, we’ll take the best of the best photos from the shoot and upload them to your personal gallery. It’ll take 1-2 weeks for this process to occur as we make our edits. After we send you an email with a link to view the photos, you will have one month to make your selections. We have tons of products to choose, and if you’re having a hard time choosing, let us know and we’ll be happy to help!

What to wear.

Planning that perfect outfit can be a challenge. Where do you even start with planning the perfect outfits for your family? We understand these struggles and have gone ahead to give you some simple steps to help you work through these decisions.
