Beach mini sessions are a fantastic way to capture the essence of your family and create lasting memories against the picturesque backdrop of Port Stanley main beach. As you prepare for your 20-minute session, it's essential to know what to expect to make the most out of your time with the photographer and assistant. This blog post will guide you through the process and provide tips for a successful and enjoyable photo shoot.
Arrive On Time and Ready to Shoot:
Time is precious during mini sessions, so punctuality is crucial. Arriving on time ensures that you have the full 20 minutes to create beautiful memories with your family. Be camera-ready from the start to maximize the shooting time.
Meet the Team:
I will be accompanied by my assistant, Alicia, whose role is to ensure everything runs smoothly and on schedule. Look out for either of us when you arrive at the location, near the end of the loop on William Street.
Dressing for the Beach:
Choose fashionable yet comfortable clothing options for your beach mini session. Take the location into account and opt for colors that coordinate without being overly matchy. This will add a beautiful variety to your photos while complementing the beach's natural colors.
Bring Personal Touches:
If you have any specific props or items you'd like to include in the session, feel free to bring them along. Whether it's a favorite family heirloom, a special toy for the little ones, or anything else close to your heart, I will gladly incorporate them to make the session more personalized and meaningful.
Preparing for Little Ones:
For families with young children, being prepared is key to a successful shoot. Bring water and snacks to keep them refreshed and energized throughout the session. And yes, a little treat for bribery purposes might work wonders to capture those sweet smiles! Remember, it's essential not to bring any toys you don't want in the photos, as children may be reluctant to part with them during the shoot.
Embracing an Organic Style:
My style is organic, aiming to capture genuine moments and emotions. Expect a mix of posed shots and candid interactions. Some of the most memorable and heartwarming pictures are often those where families simply enjoy being themselves.
Fun and Enjoyment:
The ultimate goal of the session is for you and your family to have a fun-filled time on the beach. The more relaxed and happy you feel, the more natural and beautiful the photos will turn out.
The Sneak Peek and Gallery:
Within 48 hours of the shoot, you'll receive a sneak peek with 3-5 images to get a glimpse of the magical moments captured during the session. The rest of the photos will be available in an online gallery within two weeks, where you can relive the memories and choose your favorites to cherish forever.
Beach mini sessions at Port Stanley main beach offer a wonderful opportunity to capture precious moments with your family. With the guidance of me and my assistant, Alicia, you'll have a smooth and enjoyable experience. Remember to arrive on time, dress stylishly yet comfortably, and bring any personal touches you'd like to include. Embrace the organic style of photography, and most importantly, have fun! By the end of the session, you'll have a collection of treasured images that beautifully depict the love and joy shared within your family.
