In case you didn't catch it already, my name
is Melanie! I am a mama so I totally get how exciting it is to finally schedule family pictures but I also know how stressful it can feel to prepare for that day. This is why I have put this session guide together. I will go over some helpful tips for putting together outfits, what to expect during your sessions and also what to expect after your session!
For The Best Family Portrait Session
I will always start out the session with a "Christmas card" worthy photo where we start with everyone smiling at the camera, after that I no longer want you to look at me. Its all about getting those true moments of connection. Don't worry about everyone smiling just perfectly or how your child is behaving. Trust me, your kids will recognize negative energy so just try to relax even if your family is driving you crazy! (I get it, trust me! I'm truly the most laid back person ever and I have met so many different types of kids, don't worry about anything!
My sessions are super laid back and go with the flow! I will help direct and position you, but I want you to just forget i'm there... forget about how stressful work has been and what you have to do once you get home tonight... just have fun and look into your beautiful babies eyes and just enjoy every detail of their perfect face. You might even find a new freckle or two! Kiss your husband and think about those butterflies he gave you when you first met, or maybe he still gives you those butterflies! tell him that! I totally get it is easier said than done, but if you just let go of all that stress and just play I can guarantee you I will capture some incredible moments for you.
