Do you do Portraits (Engagement, Maternity, Prom, Family shoots etc.) ?

Last Updated: Sep 12, 2016 04:05PM PDT

We have done a lot of family portrait sessions, engagement sessions, with a lot of families across the San Francisco Bay Area. If you are looking to get a portrait session or new photos soon, we will help you plan ahead with your professional photographer, location, what to wear for the session etc. 

A portrait session is a great way to get a new family portrait, maternity shoots, share the exciting news about your engagement, or even just to update your Linkedin profile photo for a business headshot.

Having done numerous portrait sessions we have gathered enough knowledge and experience and created these tips to help you get most out of your portrait session:

1.) Where should I have my portrait session?
     It comes down to what kind of look you are going for. If you are going for a beachy look, green park etc. These types of things will help you narrow down on the location of your portrait session.

Here are some popular locations for a portrait session:
  •   Home : Highly recommended for newborn photography as babies can get fussy in new environments and these sessions can take longer than any other type of portrait session.
  • Rent a studio : This is recommended if you want a shoot with backdrop and lighting.

2.) What time should I book my portrait session for ?
  • If your portrait is indoors, time is more flexible, and can be almost anytime throughout the day. 
  • If its an outdoor shoot, we recommend either in the morning (before noon) or late afternoon to get closer to golden hour and avoid harsh sun in mid-afternoon (ideally from 4 pm until an hour before sunset). In summer, 5 pm would be best.
  • Sometimes, too much light works against the photos and can make you uncomfortable during the session (so high noon is not recommended).

3.) What do I wear for my portrait session?
  • Best clothes to wear to your portrait session (hint: Keep it simple, Coordinate and Plan ahead)     
  • When you have multiple people that will be in the family photos, coordinating what you'll be wearing is a great idea. 
  • For example : If one family member is going to wear patterns , avoid having the whole family or team in patterns.
