Top 3 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Family Photo Session

It's Wednesday afternoon and you're supposed to be working, but instead you're browsing Pinterest and getting excited about your upcoming family session! You're dreaming of what outfits you're going to wear and where you're going to hang the perfect Pinterest picture after your session.

Fast forward to Saturday afternoon and you're in the middle of what can only be called your worst nightmare. Your toddler won't listen, your baby is crying, and your spouse is ready to just give up!

What went wrong? How did your dream photo become so far out of reach?

Here are 3 easy tips to make sure your dream photo becomes a reality:

1. Stop browsing Pinterest.

While the pictures on there are gorgeous, did you know that many of them are not real photo sessions? They're styled family shoots using professional models. Also, that picture you're seeing represents ONE image from the session. You're not seeing the other 47 images with imperfections.

Let's be real. Most up us don't look like models and picturing your photographer getting that *exact* pose is setting yourself up for disappointment. You look like you and that's amazing! Don't you want your photographer to capture YOU and how you move and interact with your family?

2. Think about your family's needs and how to best accommodate them.

Do you have a toddler who is slow to warm up to new people? If so, a mini session probably isn't for you. A full length session would give your child more time to get used to the random stranger with scary equipment.
