What To Expect
I am so excited that you have decided to have custom family portraits taken by Sharon Neves Photography. I will create the most fun and relaxed environment possible for you and your family. It is my goal to capture you, both posed and candidly. I love getting to know each of my families so that I am able to really capture your personalities in your pictures. It is a wonderful time to play and have fun. Relax and enjoy yourself! It will show in your portraits! You can expect to take breaks with small children as they may need a snack or a break from having the camera right in their space! Not a problem at all. Please don't stress out if anyone has a meltdown or doesn't feel like having their picture taken. This does happen and we will work through it together!! Please feel free to bring a special snack or lovie that might help them to be more comfortable! Remember, I have 5 kids 11 and under so I definitely understand meltdowns, chaos and all the fun that happens with kids!
My thoughts on What to Wear
Color and accessories is my first response. Although, if you are going to be in a very colorful environment, blacks and grays photograph beautifully as well, but don't do all blacks, mix in some patterns (not very busy patterns) and grays. When I style my own family for portraits, I pick one outfit and build on it. Usually around my daughter! A great dress or fun top and pants outfit! I don't recommend matching, but find things that compliment each other. Denim is great as it doesn't get dirty as easily as khaki can! Fun boots, hats, scarves, jewlery etc. You are taking the time to have custom family portraits taken, so take the time to create a great look! I am always happy to help!! Most of all, have fun and be comfortable!
Thank you Kristy Lynn Photography and my mom for these great pictures showing our outfit choices!
