Preparing for a Princess Mini or Children’s Couture Photos |  Houston Children Photographer

Today on the blog I’m going over preparing for Princess Mini or Children’s Couture Photos. 

I’ve created a list of 10 tips on how to prepare for your upcoming princess mini or children’s couture photos.

Before we get started, here are some important things for you to know:

  • Since each session time is limited, it is very important to show up between 5-7 minutes before your scheduled session time.
  • Parking Instructions: Because all studio sessions take place at our home studio, please park on the side of the curb, and refrain from blocking the driveway. 
  • For safety reasons, I also ask that you ring the doorbell prior to entering. Upon entry, please take a seat on the bench in the foyer. 

Preparing for Princess Mini or Children’s Couture Photos

  1. Arrive at your scheduled session time 5-7 minutes early. If you arrive too late, your session will be cancelled and you’ll lose all monies paid. 
  2. Don’t forget to feed your child/children before the session (bonus if they’ve had a nap).
  3. Make sure you have a backup outfit for each child just in case.
  4. Don’t change your child/children into the/their session clothing until after they eat.
  5. Only give them clear liquids once they are in their session clothing.
  6. Bring along their favorite toy or blanket, this will help them to feel comfortable during the session (it’s always smart to have a bribe in place such as fruit snacks, candy or a toy).
  7. Talk to your child/children about the session and explain what’s going to happen.
  8. Talk to your significant other about the session, how the session will go and discuss what your expectations are. 
  9. If there will be more than one child at the session, remember to coordinate instead of match. In addition, please ensure all outfits are wrinkle-free by keeping them on a hanger.
  10. Two days prior to the session, pack a bag with what you will need on picture day: snacks, props, wipes, hairbrush, emergency items, etc.).

If you have additional questions regarding your portrait session with Niesha Fuentes Studios, I’d love to help your child feel like royalty.
