The Advantages of an In-Studio Portrait Session

October 22, 2023

Should you choose the studio for your next family photoshoot?

The Shah family opted for an in-studio family session and I just couldn’t agree more with the decision. Mom wanted all the combos for a family of 5, an outfit change, and silly black and white headshots for framed artwork. We captured some of the sweetest photos of their beautiful children and it would be next to impossible to get everything we did in an outdoor session. There are just so many more uncontrollable variables and we have the wildcard one year old. So I compiled a list of benefits in choosing the studio for your next photoshoot.

  1. Controlled Environment: Studio photoshoots offer a controlled environment where you don’t have to worry about the weather or outdoor distractions. It’s perfect for capturing those moments without any unpredictable surprises.
  2. Soft True Lighting: The studio environment allows photographers to have control over lighting, ensuring that everyone looks their best. Soft, flattering light can work wonders, making everyone appear fresh and radiant.
  3. Privacy and Comfort: Families can feel at ease in a studio setting. It’s a private and comfortable space where you can focus on creating beautiful memories with your family without the distractions (cars, airplanes, mosquitoes, even wind!) or crowds you might encounter outdoors.
  4. Timeless Portraits: Studio photos have a timeless quality. Your family will always look classic and stylish in these images, making them great for framing and displaying in your home.
  5. Minimal Distractions: For young children, studios can be less distracting than outdoor locations. This can lead to more cooperative and relaxed photo sessions, resulting in beautiful, genuine smiles and interactions. We also have snacks, drinks, and various other items to bribe the happiness from even the most stubborn of kiddos!
  6. Year-Round Availability: Regardless of the season or weather, studios are available year-round. This means you can schedule a photoshoot at your convenience, making it easier to capture your family’s growth and milestones.
  7. Easy Wardrobe Changes: We have a dedicated changing areas, making it simple to switch outfits if you desire multiple looks during your photoshoot. Also a bathroom!
  8. Furniture/Props: The studio has different styles of furniture and various props on the ready. We can quickly move from formal portraits, to seated on a bench, to snuggling on the bed. If one thing isn’t working we can switch it out for something else. So much more variety is possible!
