IF YOU HAVE OTHER KIDS
You will have my cell number after you book online for immediate contact. Please text or call us if you need anything.
Relax. I know photos are stressful, I totally understand. The best thing you can do for the session is to have low expectations and to breathe. I promise things to go a lot better when we don't stress too much about it. Let your kids be them. Life will be great. It's our job to get everyone smiling, comfortable, and picture awesome.
If your kiddo is younger it's always a good idea to change their outfit on location. If you choose to do this be sure to get to the location early enough to start on time.
Bring a noisemaker (toy) if your kids are of the age that will need it. I don't bring anything with me usually since each family is so different so if your kiddo has a favorite toy put that in your bag.
Bring a snack & a water bottle. Sometimes a nice break with some food helps the kids do better.
I'm a fan of bribery however, make sure to only give it to the kiddos after the session.
