Do I bring props?
Please feel free to bring along any props you have that you particularly associate with yourself or your children. This could be a hockey stick for a sports enthusiast, to a guitar for the more musically minded. A hooded towel for babies and for children, we have a few colourful items in the studio, but please feel free to bring a few of your own favourite toys
Clothing is really a matter of personal choice, although for family or group portraits a similar toning colour scheme works nicely
For children bright, vibrant clothes can work really well
Heavily patterned clothing with strong images, characters or logos can be problematic as it can draw focus away from faces in the final image
Funky hats, scarves, winter coats with fluffy hoods, blankets, favourite toys, or dressing-up clothes can make striking contrasting accessories
If you play an instrument or have a favourite sport related props can help personalise the image and create a lasting memory. Family pets are welcome additions to photography sessions, so a quick groom may even be in order!
