1. Pricing for a family photo session
The pricing for a family photo session is going to depend on the type of family you are and how many people in your family will be getting their photos taken. The smaller the group, typically the less expensive it will cost per person. Larger groups can expect to pay more because there’s just so much work involved with setting up lighting that will make everyone’s images look great.
2. What to wear
Not sure what to wear for family pictures? Bring your family’s most comfortable clothes and wear a range of colors so everyone stands out – or stick to a theme!
3. How to prepare your home for the photoshoot
If the photo shoot is at your home you will need to prepare. Prepare the rooms where you will be doing your family photo shoot and make sure they are clean. You’ll also need to clear clutter from tables, shelves and mantles so that there is a good background for photos.
4. The best time of day to have your photos taken, and why it matters
The time of day of your photo shoot makes a big deal for lighting. Sunlight is the best option for natural lighting. The time of day you choose to have your family photo session will also depend on what look and feel you are going for in your photos.
If natural lighting is not enough the photographer may want to use artificial lighting.
The best time of day is early morning, or late evening when the sun’s at a low angle in the sky and casts light into your family space. You can also have great photos taken during midday but you will need to make sure there are no harsh shadows on any faces.
5. Tips on how to pose in front of the camera, including what not to do!
Here are a few ideas of poses for your family to try.
- Play with the kids. They’re your best models!
- Use natural props to make it easier and more fun for everyone, like blankets or baskets of fruit on a table. You can also use family pets as in this photo below.
- Have mom sit down while dad holds baby’s arms up in victory (or whatever they
6. Things you should bring with you during the shoot (and things that are better left at home)
Action shots with props often make the best family photos. Here are a few things to bring to your shoot.
- Blankets or other props to make a family photo more interesting
- A football, basketball or soccer ball
- Family pets like dogs or cats
This is an example of what NOT to do in front of the camera: eat too much cheese before the shoot 🙂
And here’s something that will be better left at home – things like cell phones and backpacks can get in the way. Bring them outside so they don’t distract from getting good family pictures. It sounds simple but this tip has been shared many times so we wanted to include it on our list as well! You want everyone looking their best when posing for these special shots; don’t let
The prices for a family photo session can vary based on the number of people in your party, how many outfits you want to use, what type of photos you would like to take and whether or not there are any additional customization requests.
For example, if you have more than 4 children with different age ranges it might be better to schedule two sessions because kids grow up so quickly that they will outgrow their clothes before the next time we see them!
One other thing is that our team always goes into every session knowing what’s important to each individual customer which means we’re going to work hard for YOU. We hope this blog post has been helpful; please let us know if there’s anything else we could do for you!
