Family photography sessions in Aylesbury Buckinghamshire should be fun! As a photographer based in Aylesbury Bucks I am always doing my best to create a candid, fun or romantic atmosphere during the photo shoot in order to get precious, memorable and beautiful pictures. However, beautiful things need a bit of planning. Here are the 5 tips on how to be well prepared for your family photo session.

Family photography sessions - Bucks, Oxfordshire

Choose the outfit

Choose and prepare your outfit in advance and make sure that your choices are comfy and attractive. Your outfit could be soft and elegant: chose neutral colours with soft hues, think creams, very soft pastels, light browns, tans, greys, and slate blues.  Or you want to showcase the fun and spunky side of your family: choose coordinating and not similar colours with bold accent, such as hues of grey with yellow or bright red accents.  Add fun accessories like headbands, scarves, hats, etc. Add a little more make-up and do a proper blow-out. Discuss the outfit details with your Aylesbury Bucks photographer.

Talk to your kids

If you are including young ones in your photo session in Buckinghamshire or Oxfordshire, be sure to prepare them ahead of the event. Depending on their age, have some conversations with little ones about what is going to happen, how they can be helpful, and how it will be a great fun! Bringing along your child’s favourite snack is a proved way to reward good behaviour during your Bucks photo shoot and get extra energy. Don’t forget - you are the best who know your children, hence try to schedule your Bucks photo session at a time when you know they’re usually well rested and happy.

Fuel up for the photo session in Aylesbury Bucks!

Important thing is to eat prior to the session in Buckinghamshire or Oxfordshire. The day of the shoot, plan ahead, let everyone eat and relax before to try to avoid the mad rush out the door. Arriving fed and happy will benefit everyone and we can make more amazing pictures.

Share your goals with your Aylesbury photographer

Let your Aylesbury photographer know if you have specific locations or shots in mind and eventually you'll be provided with creative gifts and professional expertise, though it’s always good to make sure you are on the same wavelength. Let your Aylesbury newborn and family photographer know all your “wants” for the upcoming shoot to help you accomplish all your goals!

Relax and trust your professional Aylesbury photographer

Nice and pretty posed group shots are always part of the goal, but don’t stress out if one of you keeps getting distracted, or if you need to keep fixing your hair. No worries! Your photographer will guide you through the process and the best thing you can do to assist that process is to be engaged with your family members by expressing genuine emotions. Just relax and have fun with all your family!
