Have you planned a family photo session with a photographer? Excellent! Such photographs are a great idea for capturing the moments spent together. You will surely look through family albums many times and remember those extraordinary moments with longing.
However, in order for the effects in the photos to be stunning, you need to properly prepare.
What do you need to remember before going to a family photo shoot?
The effect obtained in the photos does not only depend on the work of the photographer. Yes, he is responsible for the framing, favorable positioning of models, "catching the moment" and processing. However, you and your family also have an influence on what the photos will look like. How? By choosing the right styling!
At the first meeting with the photographer, arrange the details of the session:
- What will be the theme of the photos?
- Will the session be conducted in the studio or outdoors?
- What time will it be held?
- What props should you prepare?
- What to wear?
Sometimes it is the photographer who proposes the subject of the photo session. However, not all of them have access and facilities for this type of characterization. You can also propose your own idea and prepare your own designs!
So how to dress children for a family photo session? Take advantage of our suggestions!
Styling for a baby session
Baby sessions most often take place in the studio. Usually, toddlers are not dressed up in frilly dresses and elegant suits. For styling, all you need is a blanket in the leading color. Wrap your newborn baby in it and see how adorable it looks. A good styling idea is also hats and hair bands on an elastic band, which will beautifully decorate your baby.
When the baby is a bit older - from a few months to a year - you can already think about choosing a dress for a girl that is appropriate for the topic of the photo session. What models do we offer from our collection?
A dress for girls with a simple cut by Vivian is a classic proposition for a photo session. Perfect for example during photos on the occasion of the first birthday.
