"What should I do to prepare for my photo session?" Part 2 of 6 - Families

In concession with the previous "What should I do to prepare for my photo session?" post, if you missed it - See it here it has a lot of good advise to inspire you to look your best for your shoot.

This prep list is in regards to Family sessions and what you should do to look your best when your session arrives.

  • Dad – Have a fresh shave or trim, and use a new razor with shaving cream and a moisturizing after-shave lotion to limit bumps and redness. Make sure nails are clean and trimmed. Wash your hands. Clean up your shoes. Moisturize and scrub away flaky facial skin (see above General advice). When you wash your face, pay attention to eye boogers and sleep crusties. For wardrobe, go for jeans or pants, tucked polo or dress shirt with a belt, or go casual with just a T-shirt or untucked polo, button-up short sleeve, etc. In general, whatever your wife tells you to wear. Again you don’t have to perfectly match the rest of the family, just wear something that coordinates.

  • Mom – Women know what to wear, but in general, unless you are extremely thin you may want to wear something that covers your upper-arms. Long- or 3/4-sleeve tops are very flattering. If you wear jewelry, aim for subtlety, and be aware of it twisting or turning. Make sure your make-up is in good taste and there are no streaky or weird looking uneven lines.

  • Kids – Same advice as above, but again, everything needn’t match, simply coordinate with the parents’ outfits. If Dad’s in a T-shirt, don’t put the kids in dress shirts – make it make sense. You are welcome to bring those dresses if you would like to make an outfit change during the session for some individual portraits of just the children.
