As a parent you are unfamiliar with how to "prepare" your child(ren) to get their portraits done. You know how to be a parent to them and so when having their photos done it's no different, or is it?? I am a firm believer in letting all the rules go out the window when it comes portrait time. I guarantee speaking as a parent you are going to be much happier with the results if you let you kid(s) be Kid(s), let them run, play, and be silly and you in turn will enjoy the experience even more. I think the only thing you can do to prepare your kids for portraits is feed them, choose a time that is not nap time, and be sure they are not sick, the rest is left up to your child and the photographer. These portraits are of my boys, I am sure by now they are immune to the camera, but I still have to work for the results. How did I prepare my boys for this? Well I took my own advice and said lets go to the park and play, they threw leaves at me, jumped to try and reach the sky, played in the gravel, and so on. The photographer wants a genuine smile just as much as you do, now maybe you want those shots where your kids are posed and looking so sweet and that is fine, but that goes into choosing your photographer.
How to choose a photographer that fits your family?
My friend asked me why do you value your photographer over another? I answered this with a simple, I love how clean the images are, the way she captures my family and all families, I like how down to earth she is and how helpful she is. Now I am sure there are other photographers out there that offer this as well, but why continue to search if I already have what I like? I guess that is how you know if your photographer is right for you.
How did you choose your pediatrician or Family doctor? Why should choosing your photographer be any different?
