Not every kid is comfortable around strangers, and when you are planning to have a family photoshoot – unfortunately, the photographer would be the stranger, that you hope your kid would feel comfortable with!
That is a valid concern and we are aware! As photographers, we want to spend sometime with your kids to just get them to warm-up to us first, and definitely get to know you (mummy and daddy) a little before we jump into the photoshoot. We are not just concern in giving you the final products (the photos) but that you enjoyed the photography session with us as well!
It is like you are just spending family time, but the only difference is you have a photographer with you this round – so you get those family moments captured :)
Once your kid has warmed up – we start the photography session! When he/she is comfortable with us, that is when I feel they can be most themselves – which is when the photos turned out the best.
So if you’re having a family photoshoot with us anytime soon and if our photographers are just talking to you and your kids at the start and you’re wondering why we’re still not starting to take pictures, it’s not because we’re slacking, we are wanting to connect with your children and you as much as we can, so we can produce the best shots we want to for your family!
