Why should you hire a professional photographer for your family session? Artistry and guidance
Sep 25, 2019 | By: Camille CD Photography
As mentioned in a previous blog, existing in your family history is an important reason why you should hire a photographer for your family photo session. Another important reason is the artistry and guidance a professional photographer will bring you.
Professional photographers develop a specific way of seeing things, including through their lens. For example, in my NYC studio, I often ask my clients to adjust their pose, sometimes by a few millimeters. And this allows beautiful images to be transformed into a stunning portrait. I know the tricks to celebrate the pregnant body during maternity sessions, how to capture your baby’s details during newborn sessions and how to capture your love and connections during motherhood and family sessions.
Professional photographers have also been trained on the technical and artistic rules of photography. In consequence, they also know how to break them to create their own unique, artistic vision of the art.

Guidance is another important role of a professional photographer. From how and when to do your session, what to wear, how to pose, how to show off your family’s love, the artwork that will work best for your portraits, how to make you feel comfortable, etc.
The fact that the directions come from an ‘outsider’ and not a parent usually helps to have the children cooperate better during the photo session.
