Why are you thinking about recording your family activity with a professional photographer? If you are anything like me, you are the person always taking the portraits and struggling with your family just to act naturally. Having a non-family member take charge of managing the people and pets included in your portrait can create a fun and non-confrontational situation. A professional may have some fabulous ideas that you never thought of such as:
The Best Location to describe your family and create an enjoyable situation. Do you have an active family like I do? Our boat or my son’s boat would be an ideal place to take our family portrait. Maybe you have a lovely yard that everyone gathers in or a beach that creates many memories for your family. Those are the things that make a portrait session much more memorable for your family and should be part of your gathering and portrait.
The Best Time of Day for lighting and temperature, and for the members of your family such as young children or older family members. Maybe your children are their best early in the morning. It is important to consider when people are feeling their best, it will create a more pleasing portrait and a more pleasant session.
The Best Clothing to wear for your portrait session. A visit to your home prior to the portrait session can make the planning so much easier. A discussion about the final location for the finished portrait and a review of your clothing selections can take the stress out of making those decisions.
The Best Way to Review the images and make your final selections a reality. A professional photographer can make the entire process very personal whether you review the images with them in the studio, in the comfort of your home or at your office.
I look forward to spending time with you, learning about your family and helping you to make some wonderful memories! Contact me today to book your planning and photography session. 401-263-4065
