How to get Amazing Photos

This is my very first blog post and it’s pretty exciting! I’ve had this idea for a long time and 2019 is my year!

In 2013 I got a Nikon camera from my husband and that’s when I photography journey actually began. I started shooting photos more and more consistently, messing up many times, but also learning a lot. I did lot’s of photoshoot sessions with my kids and for other people. I loved dressing them up and go somewhere fun and let them run off and be kids while I practised my photography and got some nice memory keepers.

With the passing years I’ve learned a lot about photography, posing and some key ingredients that help make a good photo. And therefore, I want to start a series to help you feel confident in “How to get amazing photos in your photoshoot”.

So …

You’ve made an appointment for your photoshoot, or you’re thinking about booking a photoshoot, but then you get scared and you wonder,

”What do we wear?”

“Will we have to pose?”

“Will this be awkward?

“Will we get great photos?”

“How do we get great photos?”

Don’t worry! To ease your mind I have written a little series to guide you in your photoshoot. To help you feel more confident and get great photos that you can cherish for the rest of your life. These tips can help you for your engagement photos, wedding photos or for a family portrait photoshoot session.

Without further ado, these things are what I think are the most important ingredients to make a photoshoot successful:

  1. Wardrobe
  2. Make-up, hair and nails
  3. Timing
  4. Location
  5. Enjoy
  6. The photographer

These coming weeks I will blog about each point and give you more insight in them.  I hope it will be a blessing to you!
