The goal of studio photography is to create images that represent your family with no distracting background. These portraits are perfect for heirloom quality wall art for your mantelpiece or great room

Tips for Your Family Portrait Session
Choosing your outfits well ahead of time will make your family session easy and enjoyable.
Formal Styled Portraits
For many families, this will be the most elegant portrait they will own for their lifetime, so some details are in order.
Men – Pick A Tuxedo or suit, a solid light-colored shirt, tie, and dark pants. Cufflinks are a nice touch also.
Ladies – Dark Colors (navy, black, dark green, burgundy, dark green, etc.) dress or gown. Long sleeves are better, Diamonds or pearls as jewelry, are classic and perfect.
Young Girls – Dark or jewel-toned dresses, ivory, cream, or off white are also ok for 5 and younger. Short sleeves are perfect
Young Boys – Same as men, or a solid dark sweater. If under 4, a white shirt with a bow tie can be appropriate.
Soft Elegant Portraits
Chose neutral colors with soft creamy, flowing fabrics…. Pastels, off white, tans, grays, and pale blues.
Fun and Lighthearted
Choose coordinating (but not matchy, matchy) colors with bold accent colors, such as hues of gray with yellow or bright red accents. Adding scarves, hats, glasses, etc. as accessories is a great way to make things feel lighthearted.
Other Tips For a Great Family Session
Everyone Should Be Well Rested.
Don’t schedule family portraits close to nap or bedtime. Outdoors photos are best done in the late evening two hours from sunset.
Don’t show up to a photo shoot on an empty stomach.
Some families come to a photo session with a meal scheduled at the end. Not the best idea, however, if that is your plan, be sure everyone gets a snack before the photo shoot.
Give yourself plenty of time in advance
Mom should get professional hair and makeup. She will feel pretty and pampered and will be feeling confident. Leave plenty of time for everyone to get ready. If you show up to a family photo session rushed, there is no way to get that rushed and frustrated look off your face and get a good photo. Give yourself ample time and above all remember relax… everything is going to be fine
Don’t Ask Your Kids to Smile For The Camera!
We don’t say “CHEESE!” anymore… don’t even worry about making your children do a thing. Relax, Smile, and watch us do our magic… we can absolutely get beautiful smiles without a bit of your help.
It’s Ok To Not Look At The Camera!
The best family photos are often the ones where everyone is engaged or interacting with each other. Understand that not every picture needs everyone looking at the camera and smiling. Just be natural! You will treasure these genuine moments of love and connection more than a stiff stressful photo session.
Everyone Should Cheerfully Participate
Parent’s feverishly fussing, being anxious and loud, being overly pushy or threatening is a guaranteed family portrait failure waiting to happen. Dads, please cheerfully participate. Lots of dads hate the family photos, our goal is to make this as quick as possible so being grouchy and mean makes things take longer. Understand your family measures their importance to you based on your attitude about family photos, and they will mirror your behavior. Once you see your wife happy and proud of her family photos a few minutes of your day will be nothing!
