Are you ready to have your heart melted by your adorable children bonding during your newborn's session? Adding siblings into the mix can be like herding cats, but don't panic – I'm a pro-cat-herder...wait, I meant to say, I'm a pro at capturing those precious moments between siblings. So sit back Wichita Kansas, relax, and let's make some magic happen!

Before the milestone portraits session, we'll discuss your vision and plan accordingly to ensure your little ones are comfortable and happy throughout the shoot. During the session, I'll keep the mood light and playful with toys, silly jokes, and funny faces to keep everyone entertained.

To ensure a smooth transition into the sibling and family photos, I suggest having the siblings arrive at the studio just as we are finishing the newborn's part of the session. This can help keep your children from getting bored or restless during the family and sibling photos and allow for a smoother transition.

It's important to schedule the session during your children's happiest time and bring their favorite toys, books, or snacks to keep them occupied during nursing or diaper breaks. Don't forget to pack a change of clothes for both your children and possibly you.

Encourage your children to be a part of the session by letting them help hold the baby or hold the baby's hand. This will help them feel included and excited about the process, resulting in heartwarming photos.

And if things don't go exactly as planned, don't worry – it's all part of the journey! We'll capture some beautiful, genuine moments along the way. So let's get started and create some memories that will last a lifetime!

Check out this adorable moment caught forever in time. It's not the picture-perfect image everyone dreams of but it sure brings a smile to your face and tells this family's story.

Capturing beautiful photos of your family is an investment in memories that will last a lifetime. However, planning and styling a family photography session can be overwhelming, especially if you're not sure where to start. In this blog post, we'll share some tips and tricks to help you plan and style your family photography session.

Choose Your Location

Choosing a location is the first step in planning your family photography session. You'll need to decide if you want to take photos in a studio or outdoors. If you choose to go outdoors, consider locations like a grassy meadow, a flower farm, or an urban setting, depending on the vibe you're going for. It's important to select a location that complements your family's style and personality, as well as goes with the style of your home decor. A good photographer can help you choose a location that will capture the essence of your family and create beautiful photos that you'll treasure for years to come.

Coordinate Outfits

The next step is to coordinate your family's outfits. Choose colors that complement each other and avoid patterns that are too busy. You don't want anyone to clash or stand out too much in the photos. Consider the location and season when choosing outfits. For example, if you're taking photos in the fall, you may want to choose warm, rich colors.

Bring Snacks and Drinks

Toddlers can get cranky quickly, especially if they're hungry or thirsty. Bring along some snacks and drinks to keep them happy and satisfied during the photoshoot. Make sure to choose snacks that aren't messy or sticky, so they don't ruin their outfits.

Plan for Breaks

Toddlers have short attention spans and can get easily bored, so plan for breaks during the photoshoot. Take a few minutes to let your toddler run around and play to release some energy. This will help them stay focused and engaged for longer periods of time.

Use Props and Toys

Using props and toys can help keep toddlers entertained and engaged during the photoshoot. Bring along their favorite toy or stuffed animal, or choose props that they will enjoy playing with. This can help distract them and keep them happy while you're taking photos.

Make it a Game

Toddlers love to play games, so make the photo shoot fun by turning it into a game. Play peek-a-boo, sing songs, or make silly faces to get them to smile and laugh. This will help them relax and enjoy the experience.

Be Patient and Flexible

Remember, children can be unpredictable, so be patient and flexible during the photo shoot. If they're not cooperating or getting fussy, take a small dance break or patty cake to get their minds off of their current mindset. They can feel your frustration, making the situation worse. Stay calm and relaxed, and your children will follow your lead.

Plan Ahead

Make sure to plan ahead for your family photography session. Communicate with your photographer about your vision and any specific shots you want to capture. Make sure your family is well-rested and fed before the session. Arrive early to your location and be prepared with any props or accessories you want to use.

Relax and Have Fun

Finally, remember to relax and have fun during your family photography session. The best photos are often candid shots that capture the fleeting moment's in your life. Don't stress about being perfectly posed or smiling for every photo. Enjoy the moment and let your photographer capture the beauty of your family.

In conclusion, planning and styling your family photography session can seem overwhelming, but with a little planning and preparation, it can be a fun and memorable experience. Remember to choose a location that is meaningful to your family, coordinate your outfits, consider props, plan, and most importantly, relax and have fun!
