Tips for a Great Photo Session - Children

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE THE SESSION - Make sure the child has been well fed and been given it's naps. This will help you and the child enjoy the photo session. Also don’t tell them they’re coming to have their picture taken. If your child asks where they are going, just tell them they are going to have fun.

RELAX — When a parent is nervous and stressed, children and babies tend to get nervous too, so make sure you are relaxed. It will make your sitting be alot more enjoyable.

THINGS TO AVOID - Never tell your child to smile, either here or at home. This adds stress to the child because they are trying to please the parent. Just allow them to react to the surroundings naturally. This way you will get a variety of your child’s expressions.

CLOTHES — Clothing is VERY important in a portrait. Here are a few tips that can help you select an outfit.

  • Keep it simple. Children tend to move around.
  • Patterns and stripes need to be very small. Avoid bold stripes, plaids and big designs so the child will be highlighted and not the clothes.
  • Shoes are optional. In most cases we prefer bare feet. We would rather see cute little toes and feet rather than the bottom of shoes.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO DURING THE SITTING — In some cases children do better if they come to the camera room alone. In most cases they need a parent or a familiar person to be near them. We only ask that you try not to talk out loud or distract the child, while they are being photographed. This will cause them to look at you rather than at the camera.

BRIBES — Don’t offer a bribe before the sitting even starts or tell them they can have a treat if they are good. Bribes only work if they are promised at the right point in the session. I give all the kids a treat a the end of the session. I may talk about it with the child during the session.
