Updated: Apr 14, 2023

Are you preparing for a family portrait session and wondering what to bring to make the most of your photos? Here are five tips and ideas to help you capture unforgettable memories:

  1. Bring a Blanket: Consider bringing a blanket that matches the outfits you plan to wear. This can be a great way to add texture and visual interest to your photos.

  2. Toys: If you have young children, bringing their favorite toy can be a great way to keep them entertained and engaged during the shoot. Plus, it can lead to some precious candid moments.

  3. Props: Don't be afraid to get creative with props! You could bring signs, stuffed animals, numbers, balloons, chairs, or even a bubble machine to add some fun to your photos.

  4. Accessories: Accessories are a simple way to change up your outfit without having to do a full wardrobe change. Consider bringing headbands, barrettes, suspenders, hats, or other items that complement your look.

  5. Book a Shorter Session: A shorter session may be more appropriate if you have young children. A 30-minute session can be the perfect amount of time before little ones get tired or hungry.
