Children grow so quickly. A beautiful portrait to capture special moments in your child’s life means everything in keeping those memories alive. Diego Molina Photography specializes in family photography, including newborn, maternity, and child photography in New York City and New Jersey. Founder, Diego Molina, doesn't merely take photographs. He has a talent for bringing your child’s personality to life. Here are a few ideas from the expert himself to make your child’s photo shoot a success.
- Location: Picking a place that brings out your child’s essence is the key. Your portraits should represent who your child is, whether they're free-spirited, curious, or playful. Having your little one’s photo taken while playing in a park or exploring a field of flowers captures the wonder in her eyes in a candid, beautiful moment that can’t be posed. It’s also great to pick a location where your child is comfortable, so they feel more relaxed. When your child is at ease, your photos will come out better.
- Time of Day: Diego Molina prefers shooting early morning or right before sunset for best lighting. Take into account your child’s daily schedule and the best times of the day. For younger children, scheduling around nap time and feeding schedules make the shoot run more smoothly.
- Wardrobe: Clothing selection is important, and it’s a good idea to bring a few different outfits. A variety of styles, from casual, comfortable clothing to a more dressed up feel, will give you a range of photo options to choose from and will guarantee your satisfaction in the end.
