Photographing families is always a unique experience, given the fact each family is entirely different! Parents are typically cooperative, but the kids, on the other hand, well, that can be another story. Today, I am sharing fun and fool-proof ways to entertain your children and get them excited about your upcoming family photography session!
Sure, give them a few to select from for obvious reasons. This allows them to have the freedom to pick what they want to wear. Ta-da! Watch how proud they come on session day.
Tell them afterward, that you will all go to the movie theater to see a new movie and grab some popcorn and drinks!
Make it a privilege, not a hassle. If you amp them up and let them know how exciting these photo sessions are, they will be more excited and ready to go!
This could be famous people they see in their favorite shows or movies. They will want to follow in these footsteps!
Let them know you plan on posting these to Facebook or Instagram and have them check how many ‘likes’ they receive!
As a parent, ultimately, your attitude will carry over to your kids. Just show up smiling, happy, and ready to go. I am sure they will follow suit.
If you want to capture your life with epic images that you can pass down for generations, we would LOVE to talk to you about becoming your family & children’s photographers.
