3 Tips for a Successful Family Session


Family Photos in Orlando 

Family Sessions are always a favorite! They take place year round, but are most popular during Fall Season where families gather for their annual family portraits. Family sessions include a great variety of images, mixing and balancing between candids, lifestyle, and traditional portraits. To optimize the success of family sessions, I encourage my clients to follow these three top things: 

  1. Schedule ahead of time. Fall season is very busy for me because around this time, I have High School Seniors and Families. Which is why booking your spot ahead of time is crucial. This ensures that I will be able to do your portraits, and it also ensures that you will have time to prepare for it. This takes us to step 2.

  2. Prepare accordingly. Preparation is very important to ensure the success of your session. This includes selection of outfits, accessories, building a theme, and choosing the right location. The best thing about the preparation process is that all my sessions include consultation for the planning and preparation of your session! This is a big part of the YN Experience, and it's something that my clients absolutely love.

  3. Arrive on time. Yes! You cannot believe how important this really is. I encourage my clients to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start time. All sessions are planned strategically based on the time, the location, sunrise and sunset times. Being a natural light photographer, this is really the most important thing for me, and it's something that will help me in creating stunning imagery for you.

These steps, although pretty basic, are a huge part of the YN Experience. Building relationships with my clients is also a must. There's no better feeling in the world than to have clients coming back for their photos every year. 


I can't wait to see all the beautiful families this year and to capture memorable, and timeless smiles for all of you!
