Allison’s podcast tackles important topics around health and wellness for parents and kids, and given that fall photos are a popular but often stressful event for families, we wanted to dig into why that is and how we can release some of the pressure for a healthier, more enjoyable experience.
— how to choose outfits that coordinate but still allow for little personalities to shine
— how to choose the location, season and time of day for your session (hint- your photographer can help!)
— why your home is a great location for family photos
— tips for including your pets in your photos
— how to achieve candid-looking images
— tips for approaching a session with kids who are nervous, shy, or are stuck in fake-smiling
— the importance of working with your partner to choose the right photographer and agree on the value of the session
— the pros of a full session vs mini sessions
So when we can reset on the true WHY of family photos – beyond sharing in holiday cards and on social media – we come to the heart of your family culture, the love you transfer and receive, a reflection of joy and struggle and connection and time together.
There are some really simple ways we can work to take the stress out of family photos – most of it comes down to trusting your photographer and allowing yourself relax!
At the end of the day, it’s always about the people – I see goodness, silliness, warmth, and love in everyone and am on a mission to make sure the future versions of you and your family can see it, too.
