Planning for your photo shoot~Tips & Ideas
Where will you put a framed picture~ If you are wanting a family picture on your wall & you have certain colors from your home you want tied into your picture this is a great time to do so. Why not coordinate clothing so that you will want to hang up a large picture in your home & the colors go perfectly. You may spend a lot of money on framed artwork. Why not make it a framed family picture instead.
Communicate if you want something specific~ We love creative customers. We have lots of great ideas too so let’s collaborate and make the best images possible for you. At Swensen Photography we really focus on the classy look. We want to give you images of your family that you are proud to hang on your wall. We love the WOW factor, those are great pictures. That is what we want to give to you.
Bring your favorite prop~ When it comes to props, think about what it is you are wanting to show with the prop. If you child wears a superman cape around the house all day, maybe having one shot where everyone wears or brings something that fits their personality. Maybe it won’t be the picture you want to blow up & hang on the wall, but it is one for the scrapbook for sure. You will want to remember the fun things your kids do to show their personality. Hats, hair piece, flowers, favorite stuffed animal, bridal bouquet, Signs that say things like: “All because two people fell in love”, “Thank You!”, “Happily Ever After”. We have had brides want to use thank you signs in a picture so they can insert it for wedding thank you cards. The sky is the limit when it comes to props, just don’t choose something that will overtake your family being the focus point. We also don’t recommend using props in every picture. We want to be sure you get many classic images without props as well.
