Take A Deep Breath- Photoshoot Prep Guide

Hey Everyone. Let's talk about getting ready for photoshoots... Even without kids this is not an easy task, the men usually are not thrilled and us women/moms have to do all the styling, getting ready, and keeping it all together so we don't sweat off our mascara. But we realize that these shoots are SO important and we do it regardless. So let's talk about ways to make sure that you can relax a little bit. Step 1- TRUST your photographer, this is the biggest step in booking with someone. Knowing that you will show up and they will know how to handle the situation. Weather that be letting the kids be wild & free, or making a mild dad joke to loosen up dad's mood or console the Mama and make sure she knows that she is doing a WONDERFUL job. Step 2- PREPARE well in advance so you can get up, get dressed, eat and go. This step is by far the hardest as as woman, we are over thinkers and want our photos to look just like that Instagram family who has likely done a glamorous family photo ever other day for the last 3 years. Let's be real, no one with 6 kids can just take one photo and look that good, it likely took a lot of bribing and many under the breath FUCKS to get there + Filters. Step 3- LET GO! This is so important. Breathe, and let me guide the way. The shoot with be done so quickly and you will be left with some amazing memories of that day. Step 4- ENJOY IT, Like all of it! I don't want the only memory of the day to be how much little johnny was acting out or how Dad had attitude all day. I want you to really embrace your little family and have fun. If the kids want to roll on the grass just join them and laugh along the way xo PS I am fine with bribes always, plus they get a fun memory of a special treat after. I had one family last weekend remember that I offered them donuts over a year before!!! Photos of some lovely high energy families that thought they would have no good photos from their session
