What to wear on your family portrait

What to wear on your family portrait

Deciding what to wear in family photos can be challenging especially if you have never done your family portrait so. These are photos you are going to hang on your walls and cherish for years to come. It can seem overwhelming when considering what to wear but it doesn’t need to be.  We now photograph family portraits in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth!

1: Wear something casual
Wearing suits, evening dress is a bit more like 80-90’s these days.
Please wear something casual

2: NO Matching colour or matching cloth
That is also 80-90s. You can match similar colour but not all wears same colour (all jeans and same red polo…) For children, something bright such as red, yellow blue, green but no busy pattern or big logos.

3: We have some outfits for Newborn Photograph session.
If you are planing to have your newborn photo session, please don’t worry. We have all outfits for you for FREE. If you like, we have an stylist who can style your cloth for your photo shoot on the day. (additional fee of $200)

4: Outside outside!
Since we do not use big flash lights, we rely on natural lights. We can do newborn photo session at your place, that is not a problem. But for your family photos, we can photograph you better outside at the park as we can control the lights and angle better. Cloudy day is fine, too!

What Does a Typical Photo Session Look Like?

All photo sessions are different and depend of what you are looking to capture. Nevertheless, a typical child or family session takes place at the location of your choice. It could be in your home, at a park, on the streets of Sydney, Melbourne or Perth city or some place that is special to you and your family. What matters most is that it is in a place where everyone feels comfortable and its even better if it is a location that is meaningful to you!

During a session, it is our goal to capture your family in a way that is natural and comfortable. Usually, when working with children, we will spend some time with each kid, chatting, playing and taking pictures. We may spend some time by a window or under a tree with your children and a favorite toy, throw everyone in a pile of leaves, or ask them to run down a hill. Its all very casual, relaxed and fun! Of course, we will do some posed shots of the kids and family together, also.

How Do I Schedule a Session?

Please contact us by email to inquire about a photo session. (When, where and what time!)
We welcome the opportunity to tell you a little bit more about the photo session via email. When you are ready to schedule a session, please let us know the date and time to see if we are available. We intend to book out most of weekends, so please book us early to avoid the disappointments.

What Should We Wear?

Please wear something comfortable on the day. It helps if everyone is wearing the same style of clothes, i.e. casual or dressy but please not matching cloth. We have also found that the photo images look better if we avoid loud and busy patterns, contrasting colours, big logos or character shirts. Essentially, clothes should complement each other without being too “matchy.” Layers and textures are awesome, as are accessories – scarves, hats and hair bows are all great choices. We found that colourful tops are always cute for kids. Please no black or white for outdoor photo sessions.

How Long Until My Images are Ready?

We understand that all our clients are anxious their photos after their photo sessions!
For the reason, approximately 3-5 days after your photo session, we will be in touch to let you know when your images are ready, so you can see all your images on our online gallery (password-protected) for you to view and select your favourite photos.

How do I receive my images? How big the images?
Once when you complete your payment of your favourite photos that you select,
we will send your images via dropbox within 24 hours. The size of images are printable up to
A4 size. If you would like to print bigger than that, please let us know!

Which area do you serve?
We serve all Sydney area, Melbourne and Perth.

Separate rivals

Separate rivals Come down hard on sibling rivalry, right from the start – without getting angry. If the kids argue, just stop whatever it is they want to do and let them continue only when they have stopped arguing.

Unite your kids. Ask your jealous child whether they would really like to see their sibling fail. Explain that each member of the family contributed to the strength of the whole. Try to promote a sense of family pride in your children and teach them the importance of locality to each other.

Let kids raise each other. Older siblings can be as influential as parents, so let them help and advise younger ones. The advice may not always be sound – Just hit him is not uncommon – but is usually well meant and makes for a better sibling relationship. Don’t stop younger ones from advising or conforming older siblings – they can sometimes be surprisingly wise.

Offer a framework to help siblings should not say please and thank you and show each other common courtesy. Speaking politely to each other as ha remarkably civilising effect on children’s behaviour.

Get them to take photos each other. You will be surprised  how creative they can be!

Siblings and gender

Siblings and gender

Encourage baby love. From the birth of new baby onwards, assume that your children love each other and want to be friends. Give older children a gift when the baby arrived, let them be involved during the early days (kids need to bond too) and show them how important they are in making their little sibling happy. Observe, praise and reward their kindness, and put them centre stage as the great starts of the event.

Let siblings be friends. Avoid programming your children to fall out. Comments such as “They jut don’t get on, they can not help winding each other or they have nothing in common” endorse and reinforce sibling rivalries. Try to elicit warm feelings with positive comments, such as “It’s unlike you two to argue at making up” Clearly you can not ignore fisticuffs, but you can play own minor disputes.

Make sure to have their photos together often. You might find that you have a lot of individual photos but not many photos of them together. The kids grows up very fast and you don’t want to miss out the opportunity to be passed. Book your photographer today for your life time memory.

Newborn Photography FAQ

Newborn Photography FAQ

When should I schedule my newborn session?
ASAP! It is impossible to know how far out my schedule will fill up. Sometimes I’ll have availability in 3-4 weeks, and some months will be booked up several months in advance. After you find out you are expecting, call your parents, call your friends, and then call me.

I will tentatively schedule your session for your due date. As your due date approaches make sure to keep me filled in on any changes to your due date or if you schedule a c-section. Once you’re in labor you will need to call me so we can set a firm date on your newborn session! Please don’t wait until after you’ve left the hospital to call me… usually once the baby arrives family starts scheduling visits with you for when you get home and doctor appointments and lactation consultant appointments are made in the first two weeks.  It can become difficult to get your session scheduled on time. Not to mention I need to get you in my schedule asap!

If your baby was just born and is less than 14 days old, call me today!  I may have availability to photograph your little one.

At what age should my baby be photographed?
A newborn is BEST to photograph in the first 10 days of life. I prefer 5-12 days old. That way baby will be sleepy and mold-able. I can get the sleeping and peaceful shots MUCH easier that way. After 12 days old, baby is typically more alert and baby acne and colic are common at that age.

If baby is older than 14 days it requires a lot of patience on both our parts, as baby sleeps less and lighter. The finished product will be well worth it!

Where will my session take place and how long will it last?
I offer newborn sessions at your place.

I like babies to have a full tummy so they sleep. If baby doesn’t sleep, don’t worry! The milk usually kicks in and if we are patient we can usually get the shots we want! I love awake babies too though! A newborn session can take up to 3 hours. I know, that sounds like a long time. It takes a great deal of patience to coax baby to sleep and gently pose. A large part of the session is spent from baby taking breaks to eat.

Are sessions scheduled at a specific time of day?
I like to schedule newborn sessions in the mornings usually between 9:30am-12:30pm. I will schedule you for a specific time after your baby is born and we have a firm session date scheduled.

How should I prepare for my session?
A full baby is a happy and sleepy baby! That’s how we want them! Sleeping babies are so fun! They let me mold and move them, curl them and pose them all while sleeping! This is a result of a full tummy and tired baby! If you can try and keep baby awake for about an hour before your session, it will make baby sleepier for me when you arrive. Also have baby fed before you arrive and I’ll ask you to feed baby again once you get here.  I totally understand if you are on a schedule, however we may have to tweak it a bit. More feeding, sleeping and such. Baby will be calling the shots! Keeping baby happy will ensure the best pictures!

Also loosen diaper & clothing an hour or so before our session, it will help prevent red marks or diaper creases from showing up on baby’s photos. Avoid clothing baby in socks or pants the morning of the session as this clothing tends to leave marks on skin. Footie sleepers are a great clothing option for baby.

If you are breast feeding or formula  feeding bring extra milk if possible. Babies always eat more during newborn photo sessions. We want your little one asleep and full, and running out of formula or milk with a hungry baby could cause a session to end short.

What should my baby wear?
The best outfit a baby has is their birthday suit! I love to photograph baby in little or nothing at all.  With that being said, I expect baby to make a mess on my blankets, floor and me. Don’t worry, it’s all washable! I have blankets, wraps, headbands and hats, and spend a great deal of time before your session coordinating colors, backdrops and props with accessories for each pose/shot.

Also, as mentioned above, avoid clothing baby in socks or pants the morning of the session as this clothing tends to leave marks on skin. Footie sleepers are a great clothing option for baby for the drive to my studio.

And you?
Something comfortable and light to wear while I photograph baby.
I will always make sure to do a family photo and/or a sibling photo so make sure to have an extra shirt for this part of your session. Short sleeve shirts or button-up dress shirts are great for dad. A basic cami or short sleeve shirt for mom. White or light/neutral colors are best. No graphics, bold stripes or prints.  Jeans for dad are great. Bring an extra change of clothes incase baby has an accident on you.

Expect baby to eat a lot during your session! Moms and Dads are always surprised at how much more babies eat while they’re here. It’s normal for a newborn to eat almost double what they normally would during a session.

If you want to know more, please contact Katsu.

Respect Grandparent time

Respect Grandparent time

If your kids are happy with their grandparents, stay out of the way occasionally to give them some time to enjoy alone together. Remember grandparent’s feelings, if they did raise you. Even if many practices have changed – babies now being put to sleep on their backs, breast-feeding being recommended – this does not invalidate your parents wealth of experience. Even if you don’t always agree with what they say, hear them out and consider their advice.

Send school photos or family photos and copies of school reports and certificates to grandparents if they don’t often see their grandchildren.

Use different names to distinguish between grandparents and avoid confusion: maternal grandparents might be grandma and grandpa and paternal grandparents Nan and Granddad.

Get online. Of grandparents live far away, encourage them to spend and receive emails, and maybe use a webcam, skype, facebook or facetime to stay in touch.

We can design beautiful kids album after the photo shoot, so sending an kids album to your Grandparents will be an great idea to show your children, too.

If you want to have a family portrait in Sydney, please feel free to contact Katsu anytime to book your session. 🙂
