Five Stylish Tips To Look Amazing During Your Mini Session
Many family photographers like to have mini-sessions that are holiday or special theme-based. You will have the chance to dress to the occasion and get creative with costumes, colors, and accessories.
Did you know the clothes that are worn during a family’s portrait session can make or break a portrait? Family pictures that have excessive patterns and everyone has strips can make for a busy picture. If the outfit outshines the people in the photo, then reconsider the outfit.
The clothing choices for your family portrait should disappear and the faces of the people within the portrait should shine and stand out; not what they’re wearing. Let’s examine and check out these awesome suggestions on what you and your family could wear to be picture perfect:
1. Coordinate your outfits, but don’t match. Choose a simple color palette and go from there. This will give everyone the option to pick an outfit of their own, but still be subtle and fit the scene.
Today is Save Your Photos Day
Today is National Save Your Photos Day. It’s a day to bring out your old family pictures and reminisce about your family’s memories. Yes, it’s a day to bring out giant family photo albums and look at your siblings, mom, dad, grandparents, and pictures of other family members.
With the rise of digital cameras and social media, we as a people have begun to rely solely on digital images and pictures on our mobile devices. However, with only digital images, your family pictures can get misplaced, deleted, or damaged at any moment. I was quickly reminded over the weekend, that computers fail. I don’t want you to be like me and have all your precious family pictures stored on your computer and then your computer fails. Can you imagine the gut sinking feeling?

Blogging is a great way to educate, inform, and showcase your clients from a portrait session. As professional photographers, we hear we should blog about our sessions with clients. However, there is so much more that may be blogged and spoken about.
In this article, I’m going to give several blog topics ideas on what family photographers can discuss in upcoming articles.
They are back in school...
It’s the end of August; and what does that mean? If you’re a parent with school age children, this is the time we as parents are excited and overcome with joy, because the kids are heading back to school. Especially after the last 17-18 months of homeschooling (virtual) due to Covid protocols. I'm sure you've taken out the camera to document your child's back to school picture. Ha..ha...I did too. It's a tradition!
If you're in the Los Angeles area, many of our kids went back to school last week. This has afforded me the opportunity to be at home and get work done instead of being the peacekeeper, referee, lunch superintendent, teacher, etc. How about you?
It’s hard to believe I have a high school senior and a new teenager! I look at my kids and wonder where has the time gone.
