Family Portrait Photography Session London
You may or may not know this but my husband and I are expecting our first baby!
Even more than usual I am loving re-living these Family Portrait Photography Sessions!
It’s such a special time in a young family’s life and I am honoured to be able to capture these precious moments on film.
Here are some tips on how to prepare for your Family Portrait Photography Session London:
Make sure to schedule the shoot for a time in the day when baby has napped, been fed and burped! This way we are more likely to get a docile and willing baby! Do check they have a clean nappy too!
2. Outfit Plan!
I find that the best outfits are the simplest and I’m not just talking baby here! Make sure you, your partner and baby are not contrasting too much i.e. not to many conflicting patterns, keep things simple! You’ll be looking back on these photos for years to come so make sure you go classic, clean and simple!
3. Create a calm atmosphere
No one knows your baby better than you so if you know that they like soothing music, soft lighting or a particular cuddly toy make sure you create as relaxed an atmosphere as possible!
4. Remember to relax!
As a family portrait photographer I have photographed MANY a babies. Sometimes we catch them on a bad day and that is totally fine! I am very patient and completely relaxed when shooting newborns or young babies. New mothers can often feel the pressure to soothe their babies but please know that I am there to help and have on occasion been called a baby whisperer! But it’s important YOU don’t get ruffled because that will in turn affect baby’s mood! Relax knowing that I have seen it all and have zero judgement ever!
