Top Family Photographers, a Q&A with Rebecca Sehn Photography
Favourite Family Photo Shoot Location
It depends on the family! But anywhere outdoors, usually – it’s where kids are happiest. We are so spoiled for choice here: when shooting at home in Vancouver, I love being by the ocean. Some international family session favourites have been the Louvre at dawn, the streets of Sheung Wan in Hong Kong, and Hyde Park in London.
What should clients expect when working with you?
To walk away with the dreamiest, happiest, most love-filled images of your family: candid portraits with lots of movement and laughter, and a sprinkling of posed, ‘looking-at-camera’ portraits for good measure.
How would you describe your photographic style?
My work is what I like to call ‘directed-candid’. The portraits I create largely appear candid, but I’m always giving my families things to do…for most people, being in front of a camera can feel incredibly awkward, so I give lots of direction so that you’re never left wondering where to look or what you should be doing.
Can you share a few a quick tips on how to prepare your kids for a photo shoot?
Prep yourself! Kids feed so much off of their parents’ energy, so if you’re prepared and not too anxious, this will go a long way. It helps to have your clothing all chosen far in advance (I’ll help with that!), a professional hair & makeup artist booked for mom (this is included in all my sessions), and for the most part, just having a low-key, stress free day.
What is the best part about being a Family Photographer?
I really love creating family portraits for the moms. Having images in which everyone is happy, and you look gorgeous make you feel amazing – they are the perfect reminder, especially in the thick of parenthood, just how lucky and loved you are.
