This month’s blog is to help inform AM clients of how to get the most from a family portrait session.
Tip #1 Prepping everyone before the session
Although getting a big group together may be stressful, in the end the rewards are more than beneficial. Allow AM Studio to help assist you to get the family photos you are requesting. First off understand everyone has a busy schedule, and coordinating outfits may be a hassle. Sticking to solid colors and simply going light or dark will help you relieve some stress.
Tip # 2 Working with kids during the photo session
Tip # 3 Explaining the family dynamics
Help eliminate the guessing game and be clear of the relationships within the family. Especially with bigger groups, don’t just say, “We are all just family.” We need to know the relationships start with the grandparents; who are their kids, do those kids have kids and group yourself up so your photographer visually can see how everyone is related and plan the session accordingly. Lastly be sure to let the photographer know about any other special relationships or specific poses you wanted so no one is left out and you leave the session with everything you wanted!
