This shoot will be full-on fun, complete with laughs, hugs, play time, and plenty of tickling. There's no manufacturing a good time; when you're with loved ones, exuberance and spontaneity take over for the most natural , exciting images.
I work quickly capturing natural images so photography doesn't feel like a chore to even the most cynical toddler (or dad haha). Gypsy Soul Photography delights in providing a fun, safe setting for families!
Treats for the Sweets
Bring snacks (but don't tell the kids). I always have a stash of baby wipes in my bag, but be cautious of foods that stain clothing! You don't want to ruin a cute top.
If you bring your pet Sparky to the family shoot, make sure to get some brisk exercise with your pup before coming. This will allow for a (hopefully) slightly calmer pooch during your shoot.
Calm your own nerves. Relaxed parents have more fun, which helps kids become most comfortable for the best shots.
Cool and Calm
Kids are best when they're well rested and fed. A calm, fun energy should make for the perfect experience for kids and families.
Get the Look
Pinterest is my go-to for clothing inspiration. I have a few boards dedicated to helping my clients find the right style that matches their family's personality. I always suggest being yourself but bumping it up a notch!
If you plan to get haircuts try to do so at least a week before the shoot. It might take a few days to grow into (or be fond of) a new hair cut, especially if the scissors went amiss. This buffer allows for some growth, tweaks and perfections to the hair style prior to your session.
