Tips for emotionally PREPARING daddy for your family photography session

Oxfordshire Family photography


For some families preparing the men for your family photography session can be just as exhausting as preparing the kids. I am going to give you some tips for those who are reluctant about the session.

  1. Team work is key! Let him know what your expectations from the session are, and discuss how the session will go.  If you have children that you may have to bribe then get him on board with that so he can hekp with the bribery. THIS WAY YOU CAN BOTH WORK AS A TEAM.

  2. JUST LET HIM KNOW THAT THE KIDS ARE PROBABLY GOING TO GO CRAZY IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO AND THIS IS COMPLETELY NATURAL! JUST LET HIM KNOW THAT DARREN HAS BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING FOR MANY YEARS NOW AND HAS PLENTY OF EXPERIENCE AND TRICKS TO DEAL WITH THIS, AND HE SHOULDN’T GET STRESSED OR OVERWHELMED BY IT.

  3. THE MORE THAT HE HELPS YOU OUT BEFORE THE SESSION LIKE GETTING THE KIDS READY WILL MAKE HIM MORE ORGANISED AND FEEL MORE INVOLVED. THIS WILL ALSO HELP MITIGATE ANY CHANCE OF AN ARGUMENT OCCURRING BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU.

  4. LET HIM KNOW THAT IT ISN’T A LONG SESSION, IT ONLY LAST AN HOUR. THIS WILL HELP HIM SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL AND BE MORE INVOLVED IN THE SESSION.

  5. THE MOST IMPORTANT PART IS TO REMIND HIM THAT YOU LOVE HIM (AND HE LOVES YOU WHICH IS WHY HE IS COOPERATING WITH THE SESSION) JUST REASSURE HIM TELL HIM THAT YOU APPRECIATE THAT HE IS COOPERATING WITH YOU AND THAT THE FINISHED PRODUCT WILL BE AMAZING!

  6. JUST LET HIM KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS FOR YOU, AND AND THE IMAGES YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TREASURE FOREVER. IF HE IS AWARE HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS TO YOU HE WILL BE ON BOARD WITH THE SESSION.

I HOPE THIS HELPS AND I CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU ALL! IF YOU HAVEN’T BOOKED YOUR SESSION PLEASE GET IN CONTACT
