A little effort with wardrobe can make a huge difference to the success of your family portraits. The main message is to make sure the clothing does not distract.
Young children can be unpredictable at times. This can be quite stressful for parents who want a beautiful family portrait. The best advice I can give for parents who may be worried about the kids not cooperating is to not worry about that. We expect kids to be unpredictable, its ok if they are a little crazy. When you talk about the family portrait session with them, tell them it will be fun, don’t talk to them at all about their behaviour at the session. Well, every child is different, I find this often helps with the cheeky ones.
