Getting a photo shoot of your young ones is the perfect way of building an everlasting memory of how he looked when he was at his most cute! It’s also a really fun experience for them, they can play around the studio with their favourite toys, a football, and you could even bring your dog along and get them in a picture together.
The one rule that this website: http://www.venturephotography.com/children-and-toddlers/ recommends to get the perfect shoot is to make sure that your child feels comfortable and is happy with how the photographs are turning out. The happier the kid, the better the shoot will go. I just wish that these poor children had kinder parents.
Some children really love having the excuse to showcase their adorable, smart attire and copy how their mums and dads dress for work. So help your little ones don waistcoats, bow ties or a beautiful smart dress to add a formal yet sweet feel to your photos. You could even go in matching outfits which would make for some truly memorable photos! Try and keep their hair relatively tidy too to stick with the whole image.
If dressing your child up in a mini suit seems like an impossible task, you don’t have to go to those extremes to make them look lovely and presentable. Choose some of their plainer, smart clothes that they love and feel comfortable with. Avoid t-shirts with extravagant labels or motifs to keep attention on their smiling faces, and to avoid any clashes. They’ll also make the photos a bit more timeless too as your kids are less likely to have a problem with the plainer clothes in a few years time than the labels they thought were so cool!
The dress-up option
If your little one won’t go anywhere unless they’re in their favourite football strip, or sometimes has the urge to strut around the house in their favourite fairy princess outfit, don’t be afraid to just go for it and have them wear their favourite outfits. You’re also more likely to get really lovely photos if your kids are wearing something they absolutely love, as they will feel more confident, comfortable and more happy overall. If the ‘onesie’ craze has taken hold of your little ones, these can also make for some really cute and funny photos, too.
