The Secret Recipe for a GREAT Photography Session
A DASH OF PLANNING, 1 CUP OF FUN, MIXED WITH A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER MAKES A PORTRAIT YOU’LL NEVER FORGET!
The planning leading up to a session is what gives the best results. When you work with a true professional photographer on a collaboration the best of your family will shine through. Find a photographer with a portfolio that you love. Prepare well, have fun and then enjoy the process.
PHOTO SESSION TIP FIVE – Leave the cheese at home! Unless, you’re also bringing crackers.
Asking a child to say cheese is a great way to get them to look right at that cell phone so you can capture the perfect moment however in a professional image we don’t usually need it. Family images should reflect the true essence of your family not a bunch of forced smiles. Trust your photographer to get your family to open up and know that their camera shoots MUCH faster than a cell phone. Most DSLR can capture 50 frames a second or more so we don’t need children to hold still which is what asking them to say cheese does. Authentic laughs and smiles make the best images – even in formal portraits.

Let’s get out and create some fun portraits of your family. Sure – if you want a cheese face I’m happy to capture it but I’d rather chase your kids around as they laugh and scream and capture their natural cheese, if ya know what I mean. We try hard to provide a mixture of posed and candid images for your family to cherish.
