Capture the Love | Martinson Family

It’s always special to capture the love of a family through pictures. Whether it’s your first family photo or you’re taking updated photos, there are a few things you can do to prepare yourself and your family for the best shot. Here are some tips to help make sure your photos come out perfectly!

Plan Ahead 

Planning ahead will help set everyone up for success. Figure out what time of day works best for everyone in the family, so that everyone looks refreshed and happy during the shoot. If you have small children, consider when they nap so that they don’t get too cranky or tired during the session. Have an idea of what type of location works best with your vision, as well as what style of clothing fits with that vision. Think about colors, patterns and textures to ensure your photos look cohesive and aesthetically pleasing. Booking a photographer who has experience taking family photos is also key; they will be able to provide guidance and advice on how to pull off the perfect shoot!

Choose Clothing Carefully 

Choose clothing that makes everyone feel comfortable but also looks great in pictures. Solid colors tend to be easier on the eyes than busy patterns, which can be distracting in an image. Make sure all members of the family—including pets—have clothing that fits properly, is ironed (or steamed) and is free of visible stains or tears. Consider accessorizing with jewelry or hats! Accessories can bring a little extra pizzazz without being overwhelming; plus it provides something fun for everyone to do together before the shoot begins!

With these tips in mind, you should now be ready for an amazing family photo session! Taking some time ahead of time planning everything out ensures a smooth session and beautiful images that will last a lifetime. Don’t forget to bring snacks just in case someone gets hungry while shooting—it’s always better safe than sorry! Good luck!
