I am so excited for your family photo session! Since we both want this to go as smoothly as possible and be a wonderful experience for everyone involved, here are a few tips to help you prepare for your family photo session with Norabloom.
I recommend choosing Mom’s dress first, and then coordinating everyone else’s outfits to match. Make sure everyone is dressed and ready to go when you arrive. I have more tips on what to wear here, and I’ll also send you my style guide before your session for some extra help. Some of my packages include my signature wardrobe styling, so you may want to consider one of these if you want expert assistance coordinating your family’s outfits.
Most people know that they want their hair and makeup to look great (and you can always come to the spa for a facial beforehand!) but I always like to remind clients: Remember your hands too! Make sure everyone’s nails are clean. Moms, if you choose to do a manicure before your family session, choose natural, light colors for best results.
Food and Rest
This is especially important for young kiddos! Make sure everyone is fed and well rested as part of preparing for your family photo session. I also recommend bringing a few non-messy snacks for children to enjoy during the session if they need them.
Be on Time
Being punctual sounds obvious. Running late is stressful, and it’s hard to get the most out of your session if you’re not there for all of it! But it’s also crucial because I time my sessions around the sun to ensure perfect lighting for your photos. If you’re there a quarter of an hour before your scheduled time it will make your session much more relaxed and your pictures even more beautiful!
Your Family Photo Session
I am so looking forward to documenting your family’s memories! If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Let’s hop on a phone call, meet for tea, or take a stroll together as we plan your next Norabloom experience.
