I could have a chance to photograph this beautiful Japanese family in this summer. Their baby girl visited my studio when she was about 2 weeks old. About 5 months after her newborn baby photo session, they booked their family photo session. I was so happy to meet the family again!
As we always do, we met Hisako (the wife) for consultation. This is the meeting before the every photo session. We can get to know each other, and I will be able to know what my clients are looking for with me. We decided to go with the picnic theme, so everyone can be relaxed and have a fun during the photo session.
Another thing I usually ask is coordinate what they are going to wear. Yep, from wife’s perspective, it is fun but it is also not an easy thing to coordinate the clothing for all of your family members…Here is the link it might be helpful for your family session. http://www.itsoverflowing.com/2012/10/how-to-pick-outfits-for-family-pictures/
I always try to help with emailing back and forth, and Hisako said they all have navy or blue clothing, so they decided to coordinate with blue!
