Tamera Mowry Photography Collaboration | Preparing for your Family Portrait Session

Earlier this year, Katee Grace Photography collaborated with Tamera Mowry to give some tips on how to prepare for your family portrait session.

For more examples of wardrobe combinations, check back for the latest in chic children’s wardrobe trends with maintaining a timeless look that Katee Grace Photography is known for.

Happy Planning!!!

Coorindate Colors:

Keep it simple, incorporate your style and fun accessories but keeping your wardrobe colors simple keeps the focus on your interactions and your faces as too many color combinations in family portraits can become distracting.  Steer clear of writing on clothing unless you are specifically focusing on your love for the NY Yankies or SF Giants.  😉 (P.S. And wear something that you love on yourself! Maybe even choose your outfit first and plan the rest of the family accordingly;)

Time of Day:

When photographing kids, it’s important to be more flexible to their best time of day and finding a location with beautiful lighting during that time.  Your photographer can find beautiful light at any time of day, trust their direction.  For me it’s first about the emotions and the light!

Los Angeles Family Photographer

Prepping Your Kids

Share your excitement about the session, without offering bribes which is in turn illustrating to your children that having your photo taken is a bad experience and something to be dreaded.  Instead, positively hyping your kids up with statements like “How much fun we are going to have with Katee Grace today! She’s going to take our picture… She might even let you take a couple pictures by yourself!!”  Set a positive expectation

EAT! Everyone is in a better mood when they are well fed, especially children!! So please be well nourished prior to your session so everyone will be able to do what you came to do, have fun and be affectionate with your family!

Getting Kids to Cooperate:

Parent’s let yourself relax! First and foremost your children are feeding off of your excitement or anxiety so allow yourself to relax.  You’ve beautifully dressed your whole family, you’ve communicated with your photographer about location and vision, and now it’s time to enjoy your family, be affectionate and have fun with them! Sometimes taking a step away and letting your photographer photograph your children without you making sure everything is going right can work wonders, for both you and the kids.

It’s often helpful for me as the photographer to spend some time with the kids while mom and dad take a step away.  This way, there’s not the same pressure or stress that the kids may have been feeling while they were getting dressed (that’s a lot of work!).  This can be tricky if it’s the first shoot I’ve done with a family though… So I do like to play it by ear. 

Los Angeles Family Photographer

Getting Kids to Smile:

Don’t ask them to! We want to do things to make kids smile and laugh, this gets the most genuine, beautiful and memorable photographs that you will treasure forever. 

Most of all… Not only are you taking beautiful photographs but you are making memories, so have fun and be affectionate with your family and let your photographer do their job of loosely posing and directing you and making the light and location beautiful.

Los Angeles Family Photographer
