If you fancy a serious *feel-good* photo session,
then this post reveals the 10 questions to help you get the best from your photo session
The power of questions
Arranging a portrait session is little like a game of charades. There’s a lot of excitement. A little bit of confusion. Not to mention an overriding imperative to get it right. When looking for a portrait photographer, ask how they ensure you’ll get the best from your session. Modern custom photography offers a bespoke experience that involves the option of completing a questionnaire ASKING WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE FROM YOUR SESSION.
Why complete a lifestyle photo questionnaire?
It saves time and avoids confusion. If you’re not familiar with booking a portrait session the options available are overwhelming. What is a ‘lifestyle portrait session’ anyway? But if you describe, “I want to give a family portrait to my grandfather” your photographer will know immediately what style to produce. Or if you share, “I want a portrait to give to my husband” the final piece of art will be tailored to suit the gift you had in mind. Answering these 6 simple questions guarantees a more successful portrait session.
Get to know your photographer
Psychologists tell us that these are the questions you need to ask to truly get to know someone. Mentally run through your answers.
#1 Who have you been closest to in your life?
#2 What is your earliest memory?
#3 What is your biggest fear?
#4 Relaxation is …
#5 What are you best at?
#6 What do you value in your family?
#7 Tell us something that will shock us?
#8 Describe the last time you remember feeling happy?
#9 What’s your greatest regret?
#10 What’s the one thing you’d change about yourself or your life?
Let’s see if it works …
Just like a game of charades, be clear about what you want and simplify your choices. Share your hopes and vision with your London photographer ahead of time and the resulting photographs will score high every time.
