There are some important things to consider when figuring out how to choose a photographer. From personality to style to specific questions you NEED to be asking–Here are some valuable tips to steer you in the right direction to hiring the right photographer.
Personality is a HUGE part of choosing the right photographer! The type of session you are wanting, is an indicator of the Houston family photographer that will fit your needs in the best ways. For a extended family shoot, it is best to look for a photographer who has experience with the vast age span and temperaments of littles to great great grandparents. If you’re looking for a cake smash for your little one, finding someone who already knows they need to be prepared for mess, be ready for the split second that they decide to put their feet into their cake, or be able to quickly capture a shot where they land their face in it, is a skill you need to consider asking about!
Does your photographer help plan wardrobe, offer wardrobe, or just leave you to your own devices? This is going to be something you really want to consider because it changes the level of effort and design needed for planning. Here are a few things to consider about each option offered by many Houston photographers:
Is your photographer envisioning the same thing you’re envisioning? Are you wanting a candid session where everyone is showing emotion and movement, but not necessarily looking at the camera, or more of a posed session with everyone being still and smiling right at the camera? There are NO wrong answers here–it is purely preference–BUT so important to choose a photographer who’s style matches your vision.
