Describe your image
Thanks for submitting!
To prepare your child for school photos talk to them about it in the weeks leading up so they understand whats going to happen (there will be no saying "Cheese!"
Tell them a lady will be taking their photo- she's really nice and will probably ask them to sit on a chair or play somewhere in the yard.
Tell them her favourite thing to do is ask them to catch her 'rainbow feather duster'- she wants to see how fast they are so they better start practising!
Tell them if they feel sad they can ask for a specific teacher to come out with them to help them feel more comfortable.
Dress appropriately for the weather as this will be an outdoor shoot.
Aim for muted and neutral colours- bright colours can reflect back up onto their face and create a colour cast
Avoid shirts with writing/slogans and large pop culture images (yes I'm talking Elsa and Paw Patrol) as they can detract from your child's gorgeous face! In saying that we want happy children so if that is all they will leave the house in- just go with it!
Hi! This is me... a mother, a passionate cook and a kick ass child whisperer (well that's what I tell myself anyway!)
I specialise in photographing children and their families- this includes preschool photos, newborns, families and expecting mothers.
I spent 10 years as an early childhood teacher and have since followed my passion in photography. I now run Life Photographics and photograph hundreds of children every year, capturing their important preschool memories.
I have two beautiful daughters-
three year old Mae and one year old Hazel. I think it is important to tell you that so you know when you are buying my photos, you are supporting a local small business and not a big chain company.
I literally cannot wait to capture your child's unique personality this year!
