Some of you may never have even considered hiring a family photographer before. You may have only thought about one for your wedding and never even realised you could have something similar for a family photo shoot? Am I right? You have visions of having to go to a studio and you’re thinking this may not be right for me? Well I have news for you. Little Beanies is all about real, natural and most of all fun photography and you don’t even have to leave home if you don’t want to. Here are a few things to think about when hiring a photographer to capture those special moments for generations to come.
Photo Shoot Style
There are tonnes of photographers out there with lots of different ways of taking photo’s and editing them. Its an art with many hours in the background perfecting their craft. Do your research and look out for them on Instagram and Facebook. Try to go for quality over quantity. I’d much rather have 10 amazing photo’s than 100 not so good ones. Have a look at blogs so you can see the type of photo’s you would get if you were to have a shoot yourself. An example of a family photo shoot I have done is here.
Who is taking the Pictures?
It’s really important that you ‘click’ (forgive the pun) with a photographer. Every photographer should have an about page to find out a bit more about them. Make sure you read it and get a feel for them. I think this is really important as you will be spending at least an hour with them. Plus they may even becoming to your house and I appreciate it maybe a bit weird someone you have never met just rocking up to meet your kids. Look at their reviews too. Here are some of mine on google. Also make sure it’s actually them taking the photo’s too. Some companies have a team. It’s just little old me you would meet at a shoot with me. I would also be more than happy to have a chat with you about anything
So you can really get to know me I have created a series of what it’s like behind the scenes on a photo shoot with Little Beanies Photography. If you didn’t see it before, here it is again.
