How should we prepare our children before the session?
Great question! I find it’s useful for you to talk to them and let them know exactly what is going to happen. Explain how it’s going to be so much fun (it is!), talk them through step by step what to expect so they’re mentally prepared. My style is definitely more observational as opposed to posed so if you have favourite games that you like to play or you know what really get your children laughing then by all means employ every technique on the day! Whatever you do, don’t discipline them for not smiling or cooperating. Leave it to me to make it lots of fun on the day!
What should we wear?
Your session is not all about the clothes, but what you wear can transform your portraits from great to perfect! So you’ll want to put some thought into it. Think about where we’ll be shooting, you’ll want your outfits to complement the surroundings. Take inspiration from the location and the season! I find neutral colours work well for timeless elegance. Whilst a rich pop of colour can add an interesting dimension. When you start layering different textures you’re on to a winner! A denim jacket over a soft cotton dress, a chunky knitted scarf with a blouse and jeans. A linen top with a statement neck piece. Feel free to send me some phone snaps of your potential outfits, I’m here to help! TOP TIPS
- Think classic
- Layers are your friend
- Be inspired by your home decor or shoot location
- Avoid logos and cartoon characters
- Create movement with flowing scarves or dresses
- Textures create interest
What happens if it rains?
What if my child is ill on the day?
As a Mum to two boys I am more than aware that you can’t plan illnesses to arrive at a suitable time! just let me know as soon as you can so we can reschedule. It’s best if everyone is on top form for the session so I’m happy to reschedule.
Should I bring anything with me?
Snacks, snacks and more snacks! So important to keep kids going during the two hour session. I’m happy to take breaks for snacks, it’s hard work being a model!
