First and foremost, it’s important for us to remember that children are not miniature adults. As you know they have shorter attention spans, limited patience, and may not understand the importance of a photo session. That’s why we take a child-centered approach, where we focus on making the session fun and engaging for them.

One of the key ways we do this is by incorporating play into the session. We may start by playing a game or singing a song, or we may ask you to bring along props that are sure to get your child’s attention. By engaging with your child on their level, we can help them feel comfortable and relaxed, which can lead to more natural and genuine smiles and expressions.

Another trick we use is to keep the session moving. We know that children can quickly lose interest in a task, so we don’t spend too much time on any one thing. We may switch up the backdrop set, change the props, or introduce a new game to keep things fresh and exciting.

We also understand that some children may be shy or hesitant around new people. That’s why we take the time to build a rapport with your child before the session even starts. We may chat with them, get to know their interests, or even let them explore the camera equipment. By establishing a relationship with your child, we can help them feel more comfortable and at ease during the session.

With over 21 years of experience, we have plenty of tricks and tips to help your little ones love their session. By incorporating play, keeping the session moving, building a rapport with your child, and accommodating any special needs, we can create a fun and memorable experience that you and your family will cherish for years to come.
