How to Prepare for your session:

Talk it up:

The most important thing to get ready for your session is to have everyone on board. Let dad know he gets a say and the kids get to bring along a favorite item. If you talk about the session as a fun experience and not “Now everyone has to behave and smile” then everyone will be excited. Start by prepping little ones as a fun field trip that is coming up. Ask them to think of one thing they want to bring along, whether that be a favorite toy, blanket, shoes, sunglasses. Whatever it is let them know they will get their own moment during the shoot to show the “picture lady” whatever it is. It has to be kept in a bag so it stays Safe and so it is a surprise! Prep your kids this way and they will be SO excited about the session and will want to keep their treasure hidden until just the right time. 

Keep Scrolling below for how to prepare for your session.. 

Cheese is for Crackers!

The goal of my session for you is to capture authintic family moments with those genuine smiles. When you stand behind the camera and tell your little boy to “just say cheese and look at the picture lady” it causes un natural facial expressions. It is my job as your photographer to capture beautiful images. Joke with your children, interact with them, tickle them, throw them up in the air. Do Anything but, “Say Cheese”.  I give you full permission to throw leaves at my head to get their attention, to make fun of laying on the ground, to PRETEND to step on my head. If it makes them laugh, do it!

Hangry now allowed

You know that snickers commercial? The one where everyone is being a drama queen, and then they return to normal after a snickers? Yeah, Thats Everyone. Please make sure everyone has a meal before the shoot. It is also encouraged to bring along snacks, juice, little treats for a job well done.
