I want a family photo shoot but what if my kids don’t behave?

Children, Family, Lifestyle, Motherhood

                              I WANT A FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT BUT WHAT IF MY KIDS DON’T BEHAVE…insert your worry here! 

YOU ARE WORRIED BECAUSE YOUR KIDS:
WON’T SIT STILL
ARE TOO WILD
WON’T LISTEN
ARE TOO YOUNG
HAVE ADDITIONAL NEEDS
INSERT YOUR WORRY HERE! 

YOUR CHILDREN ARE JUST CHILDREN, LET THEM BE CHILDREN.

I hear you, I really do, because I’m a mum. You just want it all the go well. You want the amazing pics you’ve imagined, you want to frame them and be proud of them.
After all the investment and family bribery and persuasion you don’t want it all to go pear shaped because of a last minute black eye, stray bogey, tantrum or a lack of sleep. 

WE DON’T WANT PERFECTION. WE WANT YOUR NATURAL CHAOS.

I have my own family shoots done, I’ve had all the same concerns. Plus, ones about the direction of the wind, wardrobe choices and whether the sun will be setting in the right place. But that’s because I micromanage everything even when I’m not the photographer…anyway I digress.

But I’m here to tell you it’s none of your concern and you should get back to worrying about what’s for dinner tonight. Now of course you’re thinking, this photographer is mad, of course I need to be concerned about if my feral children will ruin the entire shoot. But, honestly you don’t need to worry. If you decide I’m the right photographer for you then I’m here to serve you 100%, you have come to the right place and most importantly TRUST ME. Please.

I could tell you my whole CV and why you can trust me but tbh you can research all the whys and wherefores. I think we all know if we can trust someone, it’s more of a vibe. 

I don’t want your children to sit still like robots.
I want them to be their true wild and energetic selves.
I want to see their authentic personalities shine through.
I want them to snuggle and cuddle and run and jump.
I want them to feel heard not told what to do.
I want them to be connected and in their own world.
I want them to be themselves.
And I want to witness it all and capture it for you to sit and feast on. 

I want them to feel free and relaxed
because then you will be too. 

“Kika seems to capture their essence, what makes them ‘them’, as well as special moments between us all.” Jo Pike 

There is no perfect age or a time when you will all suddenly say “I’m ready for that photoshoot now”. All we have is now. The children will only continue to grow, they will never be as little as they are right now and being brutally honest you will only get older too, today you are the youngest you will be.

So don’t overthink it, just do it. 

 

So now with my offer of 20% off your weekday Session Fee, you only pay £77 instead of £95.

It would be such a shame to look at your tall, grown up children and wish you had more photographs taken with them when they were little. Let’s fill those walls up with your memories now. 

And if the worst goes wrong, which it never ever has by the way, we’ll deal with it.

All my love
Kika x
