Silvergum Photography’s main aim when photographing children is to capture moments that reflect as closely as possible, their true personality, interests and experiences. With limited time to gain a child’s trust and build a rapport, this can be a challenge! Photos of natural expressions and interactions are a reflection of how secure and relaxed a child feels, so ensuring they are comfortable and prepared is a huge priority.
Preparation is the key
Prior to attending your preschool or child care centre, parents and children will receive information about what to expect and options available.
Parents will be supplied with details of pricing, different products they can order, ideas for displaying photos and ordering information.
Children will receive a story-based outline of what to expect when having their photos taken so they know what they will be doing on the day and who will be taking their photos.
The preschool or centre will receive a copy of any documentation families receive so everyone is on the same page. I will meet with staff before the day to gain an understanding of the general flow of each room to help us fit in and ensure minimal interruptions. I can also discuss details of group photos and any other requests.
