When it comes time to book your family portrait with a family photographer like Kiss Photography in Brisbane, you might feel like you have a whole range of important questions that you’d like answered. There are so many important things that you need to consider, however here are some of the most frequently asked questions about family photography sessions.
What Should We Wear?
Go for neutral colours and avoid bold patterns, textures or stripes. You don’t want to look ‘matching’ as such, but a cohesive scheme helps to bring the focus of the portrait onto your family and not simply their clothes. For the ladies your own conservative style of makeup and a quick trip to the hair salon is the best way to achieve an elegant and timeless look.
When is the Best Time to Book a Portrait?
Today! The longer you wait to organise your portrait, the more likely you are to keep leaving it until it is too late. With the kids growing up so fast and life taking unexpected turns, you don’t want to be regretting your decision to delay. As for the actual portrait time itself, late afternoon is one of the most flattering lighting situations, however a quality photographer will be able to work at whatever time suits you the best. The whole process will normally be finished within a 30 minute session.
How Can I Make Sure Everyone is Ready for the Portrait?
Parents often worry about getting their children ready for the portrait, but it’s actually quite simple. Make sure the kids have had plenty to eat and are feeling calm and settled, and bring along any toys or comforting blankets for the little ones. Older children should be able to understand the situation, and will probably be quite excited about the experience. The most important thing to remember is to create a happy and relaxed atmosphere, so that the photographer can capture your family having fun and truly being themselves.
What If We Don’t Like the Photos?
It’s essential to talk to your photographer about any satisfaction guarantees that they might offer in relation to your portrait. Take the time to research their previous work, and make sure that you really connect with their particular style. Read as many testimonials as you can to get a feel for how the photographer interacts with families, as ultimately, this is what can make or break a family portrait. At Kiss Photography, you can relax with the peace of mind presented by the All Smiles™ Guarantee. The photographer at Kiss stands by her ability to capture everybody’s real smiles, every time. The result is a fun and natural family portrait that you will treasure for the rest of your lives.
Remember, if you have specific questions that you would like answered, simply contact your photographer. A true professional will be more than happy to spend the time answering your enquiries and giving you tips and advice to ensure that you get the most out of your family portrait experience.
