FAQ: Things To Know Before Your Family Session

FAQ: Things To Know Before Your Family Session

Booking a Photo Session

This post is long overdue! Booking a photo session is the beginning of a wonderful experience. Photographs are timeless, and having your pictures taken is a huge deal! You want your photos to be just as you want them, and most of all, you want to have an unforgettable experience during your session. Which is why I give a lot of importance to every detail that goes behind your photo session. From the details on my website, the hand-selected images on my portfolio, contact form, our first conversation, and the whole booking process, to the day of the session and after, everything is tailored to meet your needs!

Questions You Should Ask Your Photographer

Throughout the booking process of a photo session, it’s very usual to have questions. Knowing how your photographer works and building trust is one of the most crucial parts of a booking process. The best way to make this happen is by not holding back on any questions you might have. This gives you a better idea on what to expect of your photo session and how your photographer will make everything happen. This is why I came up with a couple of lists of frequently asked questions. I will be dividing them by session types, and I’ve named this the FAQ Series. In the next couple of weeks, I will do the series for Engagements, Portraits, and Weddings. Being that we are in family portrait season, this is the first one! The series is a collection of five of the most popular questions that my clients usually ask me.

Family Sessions FAQ

  1. What should I wear to my session? After booking your session, we go through all the details regarding the selection of outfits, colors, and styles to wear. Outfits go hand in hand with the location. So this is also something we talk about prior to choosing your outfits. We can also do an in-person or Skype meeting for the consultation if you prefer! You can refer to What to Wear to Your Photo Session for some ideas!

  2. I have babies. Can I bring my babies’ plush toys to the session? Absolutely! This is actually even better! Having the babies’ favorite toy/blanket on the day of the session will help tremendously and will also make for a perfect prop 😊

  3. Can my puppy be part of the photos? Of course! I always shoot my sessions outdoors, so it’s always a great environment for pets. And I’m totally ok with having your fur babies in the photos!

  4. How long is the session? This will depend on the type of session that you choose. Mini Sessions are 30 minutes long, and full sessions take from 60-90 minutes.

  5. My family is a big group! We’re 22 in total. How will the session work for large groups? I love big families! Besides doing the complete group photos, I then divide into smaller family groups. This means that you will have a great variety of photos with many group combinations!
