Tips for capturing a great family photo

Aug 23, 2018

Choose Aris Affairs Photography for your professional family portrait in PrescottIn this digital age we often have hundreds of photos on our phones, but none are the quality of a professional family portrait. If you’re planning a family portrait session, then consider these simple tips for capturing great family photos from the pros at your Prescott family photographer, Aris Affairs Photography.

Consider the weather
If you’re planning on an outdoor shoot, consider the weather. August in Prescott is hot and humid and also beautiful.  So plan your portrait for very early in the morning or near sunset to capture the beauty and, most importantly, to keep everyone comfortable.

Bring The Right Clothing
Dress for the scene you want to create. Are you thinking of gathering at the lake?  Or do you have another fun scene in mind? Dressing for themes including holidays can be a lot of fun. Even if you opt for a more traditional pose, make sure to have an extra change of clothes, especially for the little ones.

Prepare The Children
The time invested in preparing the kids will pay off in a great shot. Make sure they’re well rested and come with full tummies. Take time between shots to let the kids have a break and run around before you ask them them to sit still again. Frequently, the best pictures of kids happen in the first 20 to 30 minutes of a shoot.

Keep Them Occupied
You want to keep the kids engaged but not too much. If they get too excited you may find it difficult to calm them down when you’re ready to have your portrait taken. Bringing along a favorite toy is always a good idea. And this is one occasion where having a little treat or bribe on hand is encouraged.

Move Around
Don’t make every shot the same. Switch places. Dad and mom can alternate which child they’re standing next to or holding. Siblings can trade places. And don’t forget the candid shots. Sometimes they are the best, most fun and most memorable.

Your local Prescott family photographer, Aris Affairs Photography, can freeze time and capture your precious family memories in pictures. To schedule a photo shoot, call us today at 928-642-4049.
