Preparing for your Family mini session

What to Wear

It’s a good idea to dress everyone being photographed in similar tones or colours. Angela recommends to either all go dark like black or all go light (like white, or creamy neutrals). Kmart is your friend and has great classic black or white tees for the whole family.

The studio may have some wardrobe options (subject to sizing etc) but it's best to be prepared and bring your own in case.

Bring along wet wipes for last minute face cleans for the littler ones

It's a good idea to have kids with long hair wearing hair clips, pony tails or headbands so hair doesn't fall in their face.

Please remember the finer details! Skin blemishes can be easily retouched but requests to alter wardrobe, makeup, nails or hair will be sent to an editor to correct and there will be additional charges for's better to get it right in real life than fix it in Photoshop!

the day of the session

When it comes to little ones, the happier they are, the smoother the session will run!

Try to make sure your little person has had a good nap (if required) and feed just before the session begins, so they're not tired, cranky or hungry during the session

Happy children = better photos.  

Hair and Makeup

If you decide to book a hair and makeup service for your session, please be ready for your stylist's arrival with a clean, moisturized face and clean completely dry hair.

Please see my list of recommended stylists here.

If you are do your own hair and makeup, please avoid high gloss lipstick and glittery eye shadows. Remember to use hair spray or product to calm down frizzy or fly away hairs.


Please be considerate as there may be sessions booked in before or after yours. It is important you arrive on time and ready for your session. If you are more than 10 minutes late, there is not enough time to complete the session and provide a full gallery, and the session will be marked as cancelled.
