Preparing for Family Portraits
In today’s lifestyle, everyone is busy with their routine work schedule. To assemble all the family members for a family photo session is a big task. So speak to all the members and find out one convenient date. And you have to decide whether you would like to shoot an indoor portrait or an outdoor portrait.
Find the right photography studio and see their family portrait portfolio. Because experienced photo studio people will have the knowledge to arrange the people and they interact well with the client and they make them feel comfortable.
Speak to your photographers and tell them how many of you will be coming over. So that they will do the needful arrangement for the family portrait. The day, before make sure everyone is well rested. Because the shoot will be on a high-resolution camera, the tiredness will show.
What’s the right date? – Any day when all family members are available and in a relaxed mindset, away from work calls, would be an ideal day to conduct the photoshoot. After all, every member of the family must be present, and must be in their best and laidback element!
Coordinate the colors of costumes with all family members. Since it is going to be a family group photo it would be nice if you are all wearing a similar color scheme. Avoid wearing strong elements and designs. For the photo shoot, all earthy colors and shades look nice.
Kindly arrange for a makeup artist to do minimal and natural makeup. If you’re planning a family group photo with silk sarees, it’s advisable to have a saree drapist.
While some families would love to make this shoot as a day outing and want to visit a good family portrait studio. Whichever the choice, it is ideally suggested to maintain a neutral and pastel color code.
Regarding the background, instead of plain colors, go for hand-painted backgrounds. The paint strokes will add more aesthetic value to the image.
