How to choose a photographer for a family photo shoot in the Studio?
Family photo sessions are usually conducted by children and family photographers.
If you don’t know a family photographer, you can choose one based on several criteria:
Portfolio photographer. If you are close to the style of processing and quality of photos that are posted on the website or page of the photographer, you can contact him.
Shooting locations. If you are planning a photo shoot in the Studio, choose a photographer who has a portfolio of many beautiful photos taken in the Studio.
The recommendation of friends. If you trust the taste and experience of friends, you can rely on their recommendations when choosing.
Reviews on the Internet. In the reviews, pay attention that they write not only about the timing and quality of the photos, but also about the photographer, his character and the process of shooting.
Self-development of the photographer. About the experience and professionalism of the photographer says the fact whether he participates in some training workshops and workshops, or maybe even conducts training.
The cost of a photographer. If your chosen photographers do not fit into your budget, look for beginning photographers, graduates of photo schools, who initially take a symbolic cost for their services. But do not ask and do not expect that a novice photographer will take a photo in the same style as the top photographer of the premium segment.
Employment photographer. If it is important for you to shoot on a particular day, ask in advance whether this date is available from the photographer you like.

How to find an idea for a family photo shoot?
If you don’t want to just wait for the bird to fly out of the camera, think about what you will do while the photographer will catch your emotions.
Hugs. Hugging is the easiest thing you can do in front of the camera. The secret is to not do this especially on camera, and just naturally show affection to each other and your kids while the photographer captures a photo, selecting view and making sure that nothing was up and didn’t zakalyalas. Children can be taken on the handle and sit on the shoulders, so that children were at the level of adults in the frame.
Tossing and Bouncing. In a fit of fun you can all jump together-the main thing that the photographer had time to switch to serial shooting. Be careful, throwing small children to shoot did not end in the emergency room.
Run. Even on Studio it is possible to run perfectly to remove the first tension and to relax. If the family has many children, they can run around the parents.
Dancing together. You can dance or arrange a pair of dances: father and daughter, mother and son, for example. If someone in the family is engaged in dancing professionally, make a touch of individuality in the photo shoot, prepare the appropriate costumes and accessories: ballet tutus and Pointe shoes or wide pants for belly dance.
Little engine. If the family is large, you can play in the train. Will be interesting in composition and emotional footage.
Kisses. Where without them? If the family has one child, parents can kiss him at the same time on both sides. If you have two children, they can do the same thing with my mom. Or you can arrange a cycle of kisses: the daughter on the shoulders of the Pope kisses him on the top, the father kisses his mother’s hands, and the mother’s daughter on the top. Most importantly, the photo capture is still the intention of the kiss, not the moment when the face flattened in a kiss.
Pajama party. Dress in beautiful pajamas can be in the Studio, which recreates the conditions of the bedroom with a bed, pillows and blankets. You can lie in bed, cuddle, play peek-a-Boo with a blanket, strongly recreating the morning bliss of the weekend.
