Family Session Tips

Planning your family session may seem stressful, but once you have a date set, I can help you with the rest.

Let Your Kids be Kids

It's normal for kids to not be excited for photos. I will get them moving, playing, and giggling so they will forget I'm even there. Let me take the lead in the session and have candid shots along with the traditional shots of your family. I love working with kids and I've been a mom 23 years.

Photography is more about how it feels

In my family sessions I love candid, genuine smiles. I want you to feel relaxed and have it be an easy going experience. I'll get the traditional shots with everyone looking at the camera, but I also will guide you to walk together, sit together, and have you joke together to enjoy the session.

Where to Have Family Photos

I have my favorite places around Davis County with different backgrounds and looks. You can have a green park background, tall golden grass, mountains in the background, and more options. I'll show you my favorite locations and you can decide. (Here's the link to my favorite locations.)

What to Wear

Wear clothes you love and that are comfortable. Neutral tons work best and you can coordinate colors together. Have your clothes ironed and clean. Avoid logos, neon colors, and really bright colors in your photos. (Click here for more ideas on what to wear.)

I hope these ideas help you plan your family session. I'd love to work with you!
