How to Have a Stress-Free Family Session

Eugene & Springfield Oregon Family | Maternity | Portrait | Senior Photographer | Karla Winer Photography

Go With The Flow

Go with the flow of your session; it's okay if it's not going the way you expected it to. If your child is having a hard time and crying, you might need to spend some time comforting them instead of getting those smiling and happy photos. That's okay! I'll get some great shots of you and your kids in that sweet moment. Or if your kids are running around and being wild, just start playing with them! Those joyful candid moments create amazing photos.

Be Prepared

Rushing out the door can create extra stress around your session, make sure to give yourself enough time for you and your family to get ready beforehand. Plan your outfits in advance and try them at least a week beforehand to make sure everything fits well and isn't uncomfortable. Make sure you'll be able to drive to the location on time, or better yet, aim to arrive around about 5 minutes early to give you time for an extra snack, diaper change, or potty break beforehand.

Don't Stress About Styling

I offer styling services to those who book one of my packages, so if styling your clothing choices for your family is stressing you out, you can let me know and I can help! Either by sending you my styling guide, helping you pick items from my client closet, sending you clothing options from stores within your budget, giving feedback on suggestions from your own closet, or creating a color palette and moodboard for you for clothing inspo.

Trust Your Photographer

Trust me! I'm a pro 😉 Allow me to guide you and your little ones, let the pressure be off of you and just focus on having fun!
