This type of session is for your immediate family only up to 6 people. Your Brooklyn family photography session can be done at an outdoor location like prospect park, in my home studio or even in your home as a lifestyle session.
For your outdoor Brooklyn family photography photos the best time is late Spring and early Fall. The weather is usually nice and mild. It’s not too hot that everyone is sweaty and miserable. During these dates most locations aren’t as crowded as in the summer. If you need to book in the summer that is totally fine as well just be sure you bring lots of water with you and wear light breathable clothing. Brooklyn family photography sessions take place outdoors about 1 ½ to 2 hrs before sunset and usually last about an hour to about 1h 1/2 if we move around to other locations in the park. Another great option is a studio session which is a great option for the winter and hot summer days or just when you want a totally different look for your Brooklyn family photography session. I recommend scheduling your Brooklyn family photography session at least a month in advance so you have time to plan and purchase your family outfits, choose your location and get the kids mentally ready.
You have finally gotten the session booked, and the location picked out. But what in the world are you and your family going to wear? I love it when my clients ask me for an opinion or tips. It can be a struggle to figure out outfits with your family that are appealing.
Begin with choosing a color palette, not matching colors. Set the outfit choices based on this color scheme. It doesn’t have to be difficult – light or dark, choose a broad theme, and go from there. This will ensure each family member retains their unique style while looking good as a unit. The point is for your family to fit together and not stick out in a bad way in a photograph. Not every color fits or works for every person! Just relax, and above all else, be comfortable. The emotion in your photos is essential to everyone looking right.
