It’s that time of year again! There’s a nip in the air (kind of), the Halloween decorations are coming out (does anyone else’s front door stoop look like a pumpkin patch?) and those Holiday cards that your Auntie loves receiving so much need to be ordered soon. And that means getting the family all dolled up for the dreaded holiday family portrait session. But we’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be dreadful! Just follow Ever’s tips and tricks to making it the smoothest portrait session ever!
Step One: Let it go. Yes. Blast “Let it Go!!!” Or whatever your kids’ favorite song of the moment is – you know, the one you’ve listened to a million times. The one that makes your kiddos smile and gets your kids loose. Dance around. Loosen up and get ready to have some fun.
Step Two: Pour your favorite drink. Whether that’s a tasty beer, glass of wine, matcha or good old-fashioned soda pop. Take a minute. Take a few deep breaths and leave the rest of the day behind you.
Step Three: Let the kids be kids. The more you try and control them, the more they will rebel. If you have a good photographer they should be able to capture the in between moments, the laughter, the chaos beautifully - instead of trying to control it.
Step Four: If all of this sounds good you’re in luck! At Ever photos our two-person team will take care of everything. We’ll make sure your favorite music is bumping, your hair looks good, and while we entertain your kids you can relax your face and get some beautiful images you can treasure forEver.
