For families: I suggest picking a color or two and having everyone wear something that coordinates. Maybe have a few family members wear different patterns or prints that incorporate that color, while other family members stick with solids.
For children: I love bold colors and prints! For girls, striped leggings and cute dresses make for adorable pictures! Or little boys in ties and quirky hats! I carry bubbles and treats for the little ones just in case someone is in a grumpy mood… it tends to help.
Expectations: Make sure your child or children are fed, well rested and ready to have a good time. It’s a good idea to tell small children they are going to “play” and meet a lady named Meghan. I want them to feel comfortable and at ease and ready to have fun. I prefer we all work as a team. You know your child better than I do. As you prepare for your portrait photography session, notice what you do or say that produces great reactions. Hug and kiss your kids, laugh out loud, and strike a festive mood. I will ask you to look at the camera when the timing is right, but for the most part, ignore me and my camera.
