Summer Photography Tips - Central Park professional session with a young family

May 27, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Every year we get receive a number of requests for outdoor family sessions. We love shooting in Central Park right in the center of New York City but we also photograph in other boroughs, including Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk County). We’re often asked recommendations on clothing selection, number of sets, overall preparation tips and general “what looks good”. I’ll try to share our tips with customers in this blog post.

We suggest preparing for your family photo shoot by making sure the baby is well rested and fed. Please bring a hairbrush as well as hair-pins, elastic bands and basic make-up set (we won’t always use it but depending on light and humidity conditions it comes in handy).

In addition, feel free to select 2-3 different sets of clothing for the baby. The clothing selection should reflect your family’s personality and style. Comfortable outfits, solid colors, and simple patterns work best. Avoid logos or cartoon characters, which will detract from the timeless nature of your photos. Accessories add a nice personal touch to photos. Feel free to bring along hats, headbands, a teddy bear, or favorite blanket. On cold days, we recommend warm layers, knit textures, and a stylish coat. If you need further assistance, we are more than happy to make specific suggestions.
