HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR FAMILY SHOOT…

I have been a photographer now for over 11 years. Documenting family memories in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. Here are some tips on how to prepare for your family session…..

01.

BE ON TIME

Arriving on time for your session is crucial. It helps ensure that we have ample opportunity to use the best light. This also gives us more time to find those perfect moments, making your session relaxed and enjoyable without the need for rushing. Also make sure kids are well rested and no hungry tummies.

02.

The WEATHER

Keep an eye on the forecast and be prepared for the unpredictable Irish weather. Whether we’re blessed with sunshine or a bit of rain, it’s all part of the adventure and can add to the uniqueness of your session. I’m here to make the best out of any situation, but having umbrellas on hand or a cozy blanket can make all the difference.

03.

what to wear

Choose a wardrobe that’s not only comfortable but also a true reflection of your personality. Instead of opting for matching outfits, I recommend coordinating colors and styles. Especially when it comes to kids, it’s best not to insist on something they wouldn’t naturally choose. If your little girl isn’t a fan of dresses, there’s no need to push it. The key is to let everyone be themselves and feel at ease during the session.

04.

Location

Together we can discuss the location for your shoot. I have many locations that I love to shoot at regularly but I am always open to new locations. You should choose a location that fits your style and personalities. I can help you along in the decision.

Locations that I would work locally in regularly are Gosford Forest Park, Loughgall Country Park, Tannaghmore Gardens, Peatlands Park and Clare Glen.
