Children and Family Photography Sessions
During family and children’s sessions I take a combination of formal and candid shot’s. I much prefer candid kids photography to posed photos. They look more relaxed and natural which is what I am aiming for, but that said some people do prefer to have a few formal photos as well. This means that you get a variety of fun photos and slightly more posed pictures to choose from. Take a look at my children photography folio
Family sessions will usually take from 1 – 2 hours.
What to Wear
Pick 2 -3 staple colours and stick with these. You may want to use “blue, grey and white” “black, pink & grey” “green, orange and white.” It doesn’t have to be exactly the same colours just similar tones but don’t wear too many different colours.
That said, you don’t want everyone to be exactly the same so don’t all dress in white shirts and blue jeans, it’s very outdated. Also no characters or logos please.
Add in a bit of texture and layers also look good. If you really are unsure just pick one colour and mix that with black and white.
Here is an example of some children wearing co-ordinated outfits.
