Family photo session in Vietnam: 14 advices for dads and moms.

Family photosession is ideal reason to spend several hours together with your family and get perfect pictures of your vacations in Vietnam. Here you’ll find few secrets how to arrange it in the right way, so that everybody will enjoy the process and result:

  1. Please discuss the time of photo session with the photographer in advance. The best time for lighting in Vietnam is the two hours before sunset and after sunrise. But please schedule the time of your photo session around the meal and sleeping time of your kids. It’s best if you don’t try to fit your baby into photographer schedule – the result will be bad.
  2. Choose your clothes carefully and beforehand. It should be light and comfortable (don’t forget that it is quite hot in Vietnam), be in coordinating colors and one style. Although it depends on how big is your family. If you schedule the photo session on the mid of the day, don’t forget about sun protection: long clothes or special cream. Add some accessories like scarves, headbands, hats, etc. to your photo session – let’s have a fun!
  3. While choosing the clothes and accessories, please keep in mind where do you plan the photo session and how you’ll get there. If you have to walk much or you’ll travel by motorbike – please select appropriate clothes and shoes.
  4. Plan your photo session so that you’ll have at least couple of hours to get ready (especially for mom). Moms are often rushing around before a photo session, making sure that their family is dressed properly, fed and ready. So mothers better have their hair and makeup professionally done, while the rest of the family is having fun. Kids should be dressed at last moment, so nothing could be spoiled or damaged.
  5. Everybody (even parents) should have a rest and meal prior the photo session. Don’t show up to a photo shoot on an empty stomach. It might be not a great lunch, just a fruit salad (as Vietnam is proud of it fruits).
  6. Special advice for dads – please try to take part in photo session as much as possible. If you don’t want to be a sad stranger on the border of the picture, please, participate in your family photo session. Once you see your happy wife and joyful kids on the amazing photos, you will be so glad that you gave this time to your family.
  7. Relax and enjoy every moment of the photo session. Yelling and demanding your kids, like: give a smile to photographer, stand up, turn to us, don’t run around… only stress the kids out. Left the entire job to the professional photographer – he knows how naturally interact with kids and capture they unique personality. Sometimes the most successful shoots are made when the parents laid back, and just let things happen.
  8. Don’t be shy to ask for the break if you or kids are tired. Let the kids play, have a snack and etc. Fell free to do this. This will do only good.
  9. Take some snacks and water with you. But take in consideration the Vietnamese climate – it better be crackers or nuts (nothing that will be spoiled after 2 hours on the heat).
  10.  If you arrange the photo session on the beach there is a big chance you’ll meet the local insects – sun flies. Nothing dangers but they bite might start scratching in few hours. Eucalyptus balsam will help (available in every drug store in Vietnam).
  11.  Don’t forget tissues and brushes.
  12.  Take the favorite kids toys with you. It might be almost everything: books, balls, water guns, trowels, even Monopoly. The main idea – it should be activity that you enjoy doing together as family. When families are engaged in doing something that they love together, the photographer will have the opportunity to take some beautiful and authentic photographs.
  13.  Just forget for the moment that you are taking part in the photo session. Not every picture needs to have everyone looking at the camera and smiling at the same time. You are engaged as a family and love each other.  So enjoy your time and let the professional photographer depict your family connection and your love.
  14.  Please don’t be nervous. Keep the atmosphere light and fun. The success of the session is not based only on the attitude of the parents, but this makes a great impact. The more pressure you put on the kids to be perfect, the more wild and stubborn they will get. It is very difficult because you want this photo session to be ideal! And it will be – you are working with the professional!
