Getting your family photos done is an exciting and wonderful experience.

And in order to ensure you have the most beautiful photos of your family on your photo day, there are a few things to do to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch.

Book your hair, nail, and makeup appointments well before your photo session

This will ensure that you are all prepared and don’t have to stress as your special day gets closer.

Prepare the family for your big day

If you have young children, its nice to let them know what you have planned, so they can enjoy the build up that happens before your day.

This way they are not surprised when they get to a location, and they meet a photographer for the first time, they are prepared knowing what will be happening.

Confirm the time, day, and location with your photographer

One important aspect that you have to consider is that you may have had to book your family portraits session months in advance, so you don’t want to have any miscommunication about when and where the photo shoot will take place.

This is why its important to ping your photographer some time beforehand to confirm the details.

And if you are looking for a leading family photographer in Calgary, make sure you call one of our partners at Patton Photography, and let David know that Maher from STC Barbershop sent you!

Come up with momentos, or special types of images you want captured

The best way to prepare for your family shoot is to have some ideas of shots you want your photographer to capture beforehand.

So when you arrive, you have any special heirlooms or specific shots you want taken that way you don’t have any regrets of the shots you have taken and regret not taking certain ones after the fact when its too late.
