Alright, friends, listen up! I know you’re stressing when you think, How do I choose a good family photographer? You’re on a quest to find your dream family photographer – the one who’ll turn your family moments into magical memories. But don’t worry, I’ve got your back, and I’m here to make this journey a piece of cake (or maybe a slice of pizza, your call).
When choosing a family photographer, skip the dark alleys and the sketchy back rooms. Look for someone with a legit website, real reviews, and maybe even an actual phone number that doesn’t lead to a haunted house. Please take a look at their site. Are the images consistent? Do they have Google reviews that don’t look like Aunt Martha made them all?
Are you into classic, timeless portraits, or are you more of a spontaneous, candid moments kind of family? Whatever floats your boat, make sure your photographer vibes with your vision. If you love the outdoors and all they have is studio work on their website, ask, but prepare because it may not be a match.
Ask questions like, “What’s your favorite type of photoshoot?” or “Do you prefer natural light or studio setups?” And, of course, “Do you have a secret superpower for making kids smile genuinely?” Simple questions to get a feel for their personality and style. No background checks are needed, but I won’t judge you if you must.
Is it at the local park, in your cozy living room, or on top of Mount Everest (just kidding, but seriously, let them know if you have a specific place in mind)?
It’s like flipping through a magician’s spell book. If you like what you see, you’re in good hands. Make sure you see a variety of images with different people in them. Variety in people and poses is the name of the game. For an example of a portfolio, take a look at ours, and if we need to work on it you can call me out. It won’t hurt my feelings.
Make sure they’re someone you wouldn’t mind sharing a pizza with or inviting over for a game night. Chemistry is key.
Read it carefully, understand the terms, and ask questions if you’re unsure. This is your insurance, so make sure it’s crystal clear. So there you have it, potential clients! Finding your family photographer doesn’t have to be a mystical journey. It’s all about matching styles, personalities, and budgets. Now, go out there and find the lens wizard who’ll capture your family’s magical moments. And may your photos be ever in focus! 📸✨
I hope you are feeling a little more confident and not still thinking, how do I choose a good family photographer? There is a lot of talent out there and someone who would love to photograph your family and give you lasting memories.
