Unfortunately, sometimes the thought of preparing for a family photo session is overwhelming for a parent. How will you dress the kids? What if one of the them has a melt down mid-session? What if my family does not cooperate, or even worse, what if the photographer makes us uncomfortable? What if the session lasts too long and I can’t find a time that works for the whole family? These are all valid question that can make the idea of updating your family photos another chore as opposed to an exciting opportunity. Don’t fret, you are reading this blog post and have found us! We are here to make your professional family photos even better than you thought it could be.
At Johnstone Studios, we have come up with serval ways to help make this experience not only stress free but we go a step further and also work to deliver an experience that is fun for the whole family!
What makes us different? Well for starters, we want to get to know you and your loved ones. What do you like to do as a family? We don’t believe in cookie cutter sessions, we want to create an experience that is unique to your family. Before the session you will get the chance to meet with the Johnstone Studios photographer during a complimentary consultation. This is a great time to discuss any hesitations you have about the session! It is also a time for the family to meet and interact with the photographer, so that on the day of your session everyone will feel comfortable and relaxed around each other.
In the week or two leading up to your family photo session, our team will send an email reminder with tips to help you with any last minute questions! These tips will include ways to help you dress your kids (and yourself!) so that your family looks put together for you session. We will help you with color choices, whether to go casual or dressy, what shoes to wear, and even what textures look best on camera! We want you to showcase your personalities and enjoy the lifestyle experience of an outdoor family photo shoot, so matching isn’t necessary, have fun with color and texture.
Now, what if my child has a meltdown mid-session? If they do, no need to stress! Our photographers are well versed in any sort of melt down a child could have, from the “I’m hungry mom!” to the “I’m really shy… or… I am going to assert myself right now!”. Johnstone Studios works with a variety of developmental age groups including newborns, toddlers, adolescents, and high school seniors. Building memories for families through photographs is one of the best parts of the job, and we make the photo session playful, engaging and memorable. Our goal is to evoke genuine happy kid smiles and let them be kids while we work to get a fantastic series of family photos. We have been one of the go-to Reno Family Photographers for many years now!
Families are often hesitant to book a session because of a busy schedule. However, our sessions are efficient and we want to maximize the fun in a short amount of time. We know you have a life, kids get tired, there are emails and phone calls to answer, and we want to make sure you enjoy your time together and maybe even make an afternoon out of it by going to get ice cream after! We believe our family photo sessions are a great memory maker in themselves and it can be a great way to spend quality time with your family and create a memory that you will look back on for years to come.
