Considering having a family portrait taken
– Here are my 10 tips to get you motivated
Set yourself a plan
Say when you would like your portrait session and ask everyone in the family to keep this date clear. Share the goals for the session with those involved and explain why it is important to you e.g. are the photos a present for grandma as she would like to have a photograph for her bedside table or to celebrate an event?
Get a network of support
Once your plans are clear, ask for help and assistance from everyone around you. Gather the family together and share your hopes for the session. Tell everyone how important this photo shoot is to you and get everyone excited about the experience.
Control your emotions and feelings
Although emotions are vital to beautiful portraits. Stress, feeling tired or worried will also be reflected in your photographs. Let the photographer take control of the session so you can sit back and enjoy the experience.
Be flexible and have fun while juggling all your commitments
There is no need to be stressed out, worried or anxious before your portrait session. Use your photographer’s what to wear advice to plan your outfits and make sure everything is packed ahead of time.
Be 100% engaged with your portrait session
You will benefit so much more from your London portrait session if you are 100% engaged in the session (that means dad too). Arrive with plenty of time to feel relaxed and tune in to yourself. I can guarantee you will feel amazing afterwards, time will fly and you’ll be amazed with the photographs.
Hire a specialized and qualified professional
Whether you decide to have an individual, couple or family photograph, you will benefit from hiring a competent photographer to create beautiful images. Keep in mind that no photographer can create the perfect family photograph if you are unclear about what you want. Ask to complete their questionnaire or for their welcome pack.
Choose an activity that you’ll enjoy
Portrait sessions in East Wight are meant to be fun, energizing, rewarding and not something you dread doing. Find something close to your heart and engage with it and you will see the results. Do your family like strolling along the Thames, is their ideal Saturday spent in the park?
Learn to say NO
How many times have you cancelled time put aside for those you love in order to accommodate your boss or friends? The truth is you deserve a little quality time with your nearest and dearest, photo shoots are highly enjoyable and people will admire the photos you share.
If you’ve got to this point, let go and enjoy yourself. Positive thoughts and encouragement will reflect in your expressions, rendering beautiful portraits. Celebrate your family time, achievements and love between family members.
Having a portrait session close to home will mean less work, less stress and more quality time with your children.
If you’re the kind of person that enjoys photos that reflect your personality – this enjoyable session might be just the ticket to help you decide what portrait experience you’d enjoy. I hope these articles help your decision and give you the jump start you need!
