~~~Get Ready...Set...Smile~~~

Getting ready to take pictures can be challenging for some and not so hard for others.  Having kids to get ready for picture day can be even more challenging.  With trying to decide on what to wear and getting your pose just right…


I wanted to provided you with some little simple tips to make the process a little easier.

What do I Wear?

The best Answer to this question is have your clothing chosen in advance and make sure that your outfit choices are comfortable and of course…attractive.  When choosing outfits for family pics you may want to chose neutral colors with soft, flowing fabrics.  I’m thinking creams, very soft pastels, oat meals, light browns, tans, grays, and slate blues.


Get Some Rest!

Make sure you and family get plenty of rest… You  do not want to schedule your family photo session around your little one’s nap or bedtime… Can you say…Disaster…. The best time for photo session is two hours before sunset and after sunrise.  Also you will want to make sure you feed the family before your photo shoot… This will help keep the peace and help with making the process easier.
