How to do best family spring photo session

Moms are often rushing around before a photo shoot, making sure that their family is dressed and ready. It should be very good if mothers hairstyle and makeup will professionally done. This actions will inspire and help mom feeling pretty and confident for her pictures, in this way her mood reflects on the rest of the all family as well. I give you some tips to ensure your day is stress free and flawless for your spring session.


The “layers ” is key word. Around in Saint Augustine and Jacksonville suburb the most popular Spring photo sessions is took on a oceans beach. The weather at this time can be intricate in the sense that ocean’s briz can be a pretty chilly at this time the sun can be over heat.
Wearing layers: adding fun accessories like scarves, headbands, hats, etc. can add a modern twist and sassy flair to your images. That way each family member can take off, or add, a layer as they see fit and remain comfortable throughout the session.

Really think about your footwear. Spring can often mean a soggy ground, so flip-flops or heels are not the best choice. Instead, wear something that’s comfortable and spring appropriate, like loafers, flats or boots.


Have your clothing chosen way in advance and make sure that your outfit choices are comfortable and attractive. Fresh collors of green, blue, pink and yellow are always a hit in the springtime.
Whant to be are soft and elegant? Chose neutral colors with soft, flowing fabrics. Think creams, very soft pastels, oatmeals, light browns, tans, grays, and slate blues.
Are your family is fun and spunky ? Choose coordinating colors (but not matchy, matchy) with accent colors, such as hues of gray with yellow or bright red accents.


My most successful family sessions have incorporated an activity that the family loves to do together.  This gives you something to do with your hands and feet, engages the little ones, and brings an authentic smile to your face.  Do you love to read together?  Bring some books.  Is your favorite dessert ice cream?  Bring some ice cream bars or drumsticks to your session or better yet… hire an ice cream truck to come to your session.  Love to play board games or cards?  Plan to play a round of Uno or Monopoly during your family photo session.  Other ideas include: football, piggy back rides, races, bike riding, hiking, singing, picnics, the ideas are endless.  When families are engaged in doing something that they love together, the photographer will have the opportunity to take some beautiful and authentic photographs.

Faces: where to look and how to smile

Please, parents… leave the “cheese” at home. So many times I have found parents who stand behind the photographer and scream, “Say cheese!”  Yelling and demanding young children to look at the camera to smile will only stress your children out (not to mention the photographer) and will result in strained, unnatural and often unflattering photographs. Allow the photographer to naturally interact and talk with your children.  This will result in natural, gorgeous smiles, helping the photographer capture the true essence of your child’s.

The best photographs are often the ones where everyone is engaged or interacting with each other.  Understand that not every picture needs to have everyone looking at the camera and smiling at the same time.  If you are engaged as a family and loving on each other, your eyes will be on your family members and your smile with be natural.  These are the photographs that you will cherish most because they depict your family connection and your love.

In the case of digital images, client receives fully edited jpeg file/s only. Raw files are Not the final product. Today’s photographers spend hours/days(!) in the digital editing images with editing software. Raw files open the door for editing without artist consent, violating copyright laws. Raw files are not a true representation of the artist’s work, as that work has not yet been completed. Thank you for understanding.
