What is family photography all about?
Family photography is about capturing the special moments, milestones, love, and connections within a family. It aims to preserve memories and create meaningful images that reflect the unique dynamics and bonds shared by your family members.
What should I prepare for a family photoshoot?
To prepare for your family photoshoot, consider coordinating outfits for your family members, selecting a suitable location, and discussing any specific accessories or props you would like to incorporate. It’s also helpful to ensure everyone is well-rested and fed before the session to keep everyone in a good mood.
What should I wear?
Choosing what to wear for a family session is important to ensure coordination and a cohesive look. Opt for complementary colors, avoid busy patterns or logos, and consider the location and season when selecting outfits. Ultimately, choose outfits that make you feel comfortable and reflect your family’s style.
How to coordinate the family outfits?
Coordinating your family outfits can be done by selecting a color palette. You can choose complementary colors or shades of the same color and mix patterns and textures while maintaining a cohesive look. It’s best to avoid everyone wearing the exact same outfit and instead aim for a coordinated, harmonious ensemble.
Who should be in family photos?
Family photos typically feature immediate family members, such as parents and children. However, you have the flexibility to include extended family members, grandparents, or even beloved pets if desired. The composition of the photoshoot ultimately depends on your preferences and the purpose of the session. Please note that pricing may vary based on the number of people attending the photoshoot. Feel free to contact me for a personalized quote.
Do you offer an extended family session?
Yes, extended family sessions are often available upon request. These sessions can include multiple generations or include relatives beyond immediate family members. Be sure to discuss your specific requirements with me to ensure I can accommodate your extended family.
How long should a family photo shoot last?
The duration of a family photo shoot can vary depending on the number of individuals being photographed and the chosen package. On average, a family session typically lasts between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. This timeframe allows ample time for various poses, groupings, and capturing natural interactions among family members.
Which location is the best for the family session?
The best location for a family session depends on your preferences and the desired aesthetic. It could be a favorite park, beach, urban setting, professional photography studio, or even your own home. Consider locations that hold sentimental value or reflect your family’s interests. I can also suggest suitable locations based on my experience.
What if my kid won't cooperate at all during the photoshoot?
Children can sometimes be uncooperative during a photoshoot, and that’s okay. Experienced family photographers are skilled at working with children and I know how to engage them. I have techniques to capture natural and candid moments, even if the children aren’t fully cooperating. Bringing their favorite snacks, candies, or small treats can be a helpful bribe to encourage their cooperation throughout the session. Additionally, having their favorite toys or props on hand can provide a sense of comfort and familiarity. Patience, understanding, and a relaxed atmosphere can go a long way in helping children feel comfortable and more cooperative.
What should I bring to my family photo session?
Depending on the location and your preferences, you may want to bring props or items that hold sentimental value to include in the photoshoot. This could be a favorite toy, a special blanket, or any other item that helps tell your family’s story. Additionally, it’s useful to have any necessary essentials like snacks, water, and extra clothing for children, especially for longer sessions.
What happens if it rains?
In case of inclement weather such as rain, rest assured that we have options available to ensure the success of your family session. We can either reschedule the outdoor shoot for a later date when the weather is more favorable, or we can take advantage of my professional studio, where we have a controlled environment to capture beautiful family portraits regardless of the weather conditions. Together, we will make the necessary arrangements to accommodate any weather-related challenges and ensure a memorable and enjoyable photoshoot experience.
How far in advance should I book my photography session?
It is recommended to book your family photography session as early as possible to secure your preferred date and time. Popular seasons like spring and fall tend to have high demand, so booking several weeks or even a few months in advance is advisable. However, it’s always worth reaching out to me to inquire about my availability, as I may have last-minute openings.
Your schedule looks full for my preferred dates. Do you ever have cancellations or last-minute openings?
While my schedule can fill up quickly, cancellations and last-minute openings do occur. It’s a good idea to check with me directly about any potential cancellations or openings. I may be able to accommodate you or place you on my waiting list.
What can I do to ensure my family session goes well?
To ensure a successful family session, communicate openly with me about your expectations and vision for the shoot. Plan ahead, arrive on time, and come prepared. Relax, have fun, and enjoy the moment with your family. Trust in my expertise, and let me guide you through the process to capture beautiful, unique, and authentic moments of your family’s lives.
Thank you for considering a family session with me! If you have any more questions or would like to discuss your specific requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m here to help and guide you through the booking process.
Let’s create beautiful and timeless memories together. I look forward to hearing from you and capturing precious moments with your family.
CLIENT LOVE NOTES
“Lilia was wonderful to work with. Excellent communication and great suggestions for every detail of our photography session. We scheduled a family photo session with 11 people, 4 of which were under 5. Lilia took the time to know everyone’s name and was really great with the little ones. The turn around time was super fast and the photos, stunning. I would highly recommend Lilia to anyone looking for a family photo session.”
