Chicago Family mini sessions
Family fall session

You finally booked your family sessions and are super excited to get some snaps of everyone, but now what? Here are some helpful hints to get you started and hopefully make life easier. Please don’t stress , I know a lot of moms stress about this day. Take a deep breath, you just got everyone out of the house and they all look nice. Thats an accomplishment itself.

  • Avoid bright colors, they reflect on to your face and cause a color cast.

  • Avoid Large logos.

  • Don’t match too much.

  • Rich colors and patterns are great for fall, I know a lot of moms tend to lean towards leopard print and it looks great in photos.

  • You can’t go wrong with a natural pallet.

  • Heels will sink in the grass and you will have to walk in the gravel, plan head for that. If you need hight, boots and wedges are recommended for outdoor sessions.

  • Make sure there are no hair ties on wrists.

  • Pack an extra outfit for kids in case of spills and messes.

  • Wear comfortable clothing, if you are not comfortable it will show in the photos.

  • For younger kids please bring a toy or whatever gets their attention.

  • Wipes for snacks and noses.

  • Be rested and well fed. If you plan to eat after the shoot please have some snacks before hand.

  • Let your child’s personality shine, not every photo they will smile for.

  • Kids will be kids - just roll with it.

  • Have fun with the family and enjoy each others company.

  • Do not stress, trust your photographer.
