How to Prepare for a Family or Senior Portrait Session
Preparing for a family or senior session is fun and makes for the best portrait experience! Here are a few things to consider before your family or senior portrait session.
- Think about wardrobe: what will you wear for the portraits? Family colors should coordinate but not match – think layers and alternating colors on tops and bottoms. For seniors, pick one piece that’s more dressy and then another outfit or two that are more casual. Choose pieces that make you feel like YOU!
- Location: do you prefer a natural setting with lots of greenery and trees? Or are you more comfortable in the city with a more urban vibe? We can choose a location together that will fit your style.
- Goals: how will you display the final portraits? It’s good to make a plan ahead of time. We can create specific portraits based on the end result that we want. For example, if we know that we’d like a family portrait over the fireplace, I will create a couple of options for that particular space with lots of breathing room so that the proportions of the people to the size of the print are appropriate. Many seniors like an album with their favorite 25 images. If we know this ahead of time, I will be sure to capture details and fun extra shots that show your personality.
