Every photography experience tell a different story, the feelings, the mood, connections and all that is happening is so unique to each and every family. The weather also plays an important role, so as seasons and the outfits on how to tell your family story, in an outdoor photoshoot, with a little 7 months old baby, a toddler or more children, there are different factors to be taken into consideration before the big day!
1. Why we are capturing this special stage of your life?
Responding to this question not only give you a clear idea to set expectations and a direction to visualise the day and the photos, it also help me to focus on your why rather than capturing random moments.
2- What moments, habits, expressions, characteristics are the top priority to be captured?
Those that will soon be growing into new ones, those soon maybe forgotten and those that melts your heart. The more we communicate, the more we both know where we are heading. Although lifestyle photography can somehow looks more about candid shots, thought years I have found out COMMUNICATION is the key so as comfort and no stress!
So we don’t usually have time limits, plan around kidos nap time, but having plans in place, knowing your most precious moments and children’s special habits, they all help to perfect your outdoor family photoshoot more specially with a little 7 months old baby as well as letting everyone have fun!
The Key elements for an outdoor Family Lifestyle Photoshoot with a little 7 months old baby
When our children start to have their own family,
that is when we are asked more often how everything was when they were kids?
How our days were with little kidos running around? How was our moments, laughters, cryings and how did we all feel at that time?
That’s when the photographs are the most helpful!
Outdoor family photoshoot,
is simply your family day out
with a photographer!
So the goal is for you to enjoy your time with your dearest ones, for everyone to have fun, endless laughs, giggles and cuddles.
And those are to be remembered once looking back at your moments.
These photos, the albums, all our memories up on the wall,
are there to tell our stories…
when they ask in future …
how things were.. when they were little…
3. Seasons, weather, outfits
There is a huge difference between an outdoor family photoshoot in summer,
with loose and colourful outfits with tons of light to an autumn playful shoot, in a dramatic light!
So knowing what is more for you, how these colours work better up on the wall
considering your home design and in general what theme is more pleasing for you,
is another tip to consider while planning for your outdoor family photoshoot.
If planning for an autumn shoot: Always remember for little babies, early autumn – warmer – days are more convenient
than Cold November time.
Children are little only for a little while…
Capture those moments on time!
and what is a better gift for grandparents than a gorgeous photo of all their beloved children and grandchildren!
