A lot of the times we make things way more complicated than they are. Would you agree? I think having your family pictures taken is one of those things that we think it will be a lot harder than it actually is. At least if you have your photos done by me! That’s why I wanted to give you some tips for photoshoot ideas for toddlers and their parents.
So I created this list for you, so that you can have it handy when preparing for our session. Here are three things you should bring to your family photoshoot.
1- Snacks and Water
Yes, that sounds pretty obvious and basic. But I know that you might be feeling a little flustered when trying to leave the house with the kids and making sure you are on time and looking great, etc.
So here’s my advice, the night before your session you can fill up water bottles and get some non-messy snacks together and stick them in the car. That way, whatever goes down the next day when you are working so hard to get everybody out of the house on time, you don’t have to worry about it.
2- An emergency item that can stop a tantrum on its tracks
I bet you know exactly what I’m talking about. When my son was little, I used to carry a lollipop in my bag AT ALL TIMES. Of course I wasn’t going to stick a lollipop in his mouth just because he was having the odd tantrum ( I mean hourly tantrum). The lollipop was for special situations only, where I had exhausted all other ways to settle my child and I really needed him to settle.
We can always spend 15 minutes waiting for your child to feel better, that’s not a problem at all. Once we are going on 20- 30 mins, that’s when I would recommend bringing the emergency item out.
I have a game plan, of course, because I have to be in control so that you can all relax.
