Why not try and keep it interesting, give it a theme, make it a ballerina shoot!
Not all children are as excited about family photoshoots but make it a superhero or ballerina shoot, now these sound like fun.
We always encourage parents to have a think about what they are hoping to achieve from their photoshoots with us. It’s essential, especially with children of a young age, that we are able to keep their interest, work our magic and get the shots! One of the best ways to do this is to get your child involved with planning the shoot, get them excited about it by including something they are interested in or love.
For some, this might be include a favourite toy or a special outfit, like a tutu for our little ballerina. I really enjoy images that follow this thought, I think it speaks volumes to that specific moment in time and the age of the child. Of course, as a parent, you can help make the shoot more successful by guiding your child’s choices or helping them make decisions on which toy they bring or which outfit would be perfect for their shoot. We would hope you would want to help choose the most photogenic/ clean toy or outfit!
It’s very possible that your little one might want to be Anna from Frozen or Superman (as you can see here on the second page of our family photography gallery) all day, everyday so it’s always a good idea to leave the ‘special’ part of the shoot until the very end.
Our team is well versed in planning shoots for families of all sizes (with children of all ages) so we are more than happy to help with preparation and ideas to make your shoot with us fun and memorable. We even wrote up a bit of a ‘How to’ guide for shoot prep, here, to help with the basics.
Have a special request? Let us know well in advance so we can make it possible! Get in touch to book in for your family shoot.
