The Week Before
"How do I prep the kids for our photo session?"
The week or two before your session, start bringing me up in conversation. You can refer to me as Jen, Jenny, Jenifer or even just the photographer/camera lady. Tell your kids about the fun adventure we'll be having. I am totally not above bribery. A fun ice cream date after our session or a yummy snack is always a big hit. Just make sure you let the kids know we're going to have fun! If they get worried about behaving perfectly then it will show in the images. I love taking time to connect with your kids to get those fun images of them.
"How do I prep dad for our photo session?"
Tell dad we're going on an adventure too! Let him know that all he has to do is relax and have fun loving on his wife and kids. Take the pressure off. He'll do great!
"How do I prep myself, mom?"
Relax! Pamper yourself. Get your hair or nails done (if that's your thing). Don't stress, and remember to just have fun with your family. This is the time to be your true self with your beautiful family, enjoy it.
