Top Tips for a Family Portraits in Conroe TX
Screaming kids, downpours, soiled clothing are parts of the hallmark of many typical family portrait sessions, especially when it involves children. Many parents underestimate how much preparation is needed if you are to get proper and memorable family photos. Pulling off the perfect family portrait session can feel a little like a miracle, but it doesn’t have to be! As a Conroe photographer, there are a few tips I can give a family to get ready for their session.
1. Plan Your Location Wisely. My experience with family portraits in Conroe TX, is that location matters a lot. Choose a location that is not too far off and is ideal for the family. You might have to visit the site once or twice before the shoot just to get to see how it looks like at different times of the day. Because you can’t control the weather, have a plan B just in case you might have to make a last minute change. If the first location is outdoors, then make sure the second location is indoors or sufficiently sheltered.
2. Prep the Kids. This should start a few days before the shoot. It could include building up their interest and acting out the whole set in a fun and exciting way. Build anticipation for their fun photo shoot. It will minimize the chances that they will be groggy on that day. Make sure they get to eat before you show up for the session. They should also have a proper nap especially if the shoot is in the afternoon.
3. Get The Right Clothing. This should be based on the kind of photography that you want. Do you want to portray style, a particular family tradition or the season you are in? Depending on the kind of feelings or ideas that you want to put across, you can choose appropriate apparel to represent that theme. Also make sure the clothing style fits with the season, whether summer, winter or spring. It’s often advisable to get more than one set of clothing.
4. Keep Everyone Engaged During the Shoot. A short bonding session to create a sense of chemistry between the family members before the shoot can do wonders. You could play a group game or share some favorite family memories to get everyone in the family togetherness mood!
