When consumers come to meet me in the studio, they are typically nonetheless pondering the thought of regardless of whether or not to have flowergirls or pageboys.
They usually ask my opinion as to their involvement with the photography throughout the day and when they ought to ‘go back to Mummy or babysitter’. A lot of couples have nephews, nieces, their personal youngsters or good friend’s children that make a delightful not to mention photogenic addition to their bridal celebration ensemble.
Some items to consider from my point of view are:
- Is Mum or Dad in the bridal party? If this is the case, it’s unlikely that your bridesmaid or groomsman will be able to loosen up and be portion of the photo session, as they will be consistently questioning ‘where’s Ava?’ … If Ava takes place to be a toddler.
- Your buddy will be on mothers duty and I frequently locate, just not relaxed especially if the location is in a public place where there is lots going on around us and lots of areas for a toddler to go missing.
- Also if Ava decides it’s time to throw a tantrum for whatever reason – your friend will have to sort it out and maybe miss out on being in the photographs. For this cause I often suggest a babysitter/relative to be there so the bridal celebration can unwind – the finest photos are taken when absolutely everyone is relaxed – the greatest images of kids are when they don’t even know they are becoming photographed.
- How old are they? Flower Girls and Page Boys range in age – this is something to consider… will they loose it walking down the aisle if they are too young? Will they want feeding and/or a nap during the place shoot?
- Lastly, the last point to think about is that tiny ones are so cute they’re in danger of stealing the show… but that’s what it’s all about!
