Brenda Anderson Photography | Kids Studio Mini Session Prep

Thank you for booking a studio mini session for kids! My studio is located at 214 W. Main Street, Tavares, FL 32778.
It is an upstairs location. You can park in front, or behind the building. If you park behind, turn on Joanna off
of Main Street and then park behind the green building. My studio is in the green building. The Republican office is
downstairs, and my studio is the blue door to the left and up the stairs. If you need to call me, my phone number is
(352) 455-8015. I might not hear my phone when working, so text if you need to get in touch with me and I don't answer.

Please be on time, as these sessions are back to back. If you arrive early, just make yourself at home.

The mini session will include 5 images, that you get to choose, and you can purchase additional
images for $10 each. Within 1-2 days of your session, I will message you and ask if you want a sneak peek posted. Your images will be edited in order of the sessions I have photographed that week. I will have the final proofings to you within 4 weeks.

Every session is a bit different, depending on each child and how they like being photographed. I get a feel for each child’s personality and then will work off of their behavior. Some will be more shy and reserved, and others will be a little more on the wild side. I want
to capture your child being....well.... them! Please don't expect a gazillion of perfectly posed images. I love to capture kids being kids. 

Tips to make this the most awesome session ever: Just hang out, enjoy yourself, and let me have a
blast with your little one(s). There aren’t many rules in my space, and I want the kiddos to have a
great time, because that’s when the best images are captured. Stay clear from having them say,
“cheese” and any threats about being on their best behavior, please. I will probably make toot noises,
and say some off the wall things, so just roll with it.

As for what to wear, I do not recommend fluorescent or super bright colors, as they cast colors on the skin, that I do not edit out. Try not to be too matchy matchy, but instead, coordinate. Pastels, cream/white, chambray, khaki, all look amazing! I do like a splash of navy, too! I love H&M, especially for boys. For girls, anything with texture (lace especially) is perfect. A jacket with a dress, dainty headband are really cute for girls. For boys, rolled jeans/pants, bow ties, hats, vests really play up their cuteness. I also love suspender pants/shorts with a plain shirt. Shoes are also important, barefoot is best if you struggle with shoe choice. Please stay away from mesh headbands with flowers bigger than your baby's head. Small, timeless, non distracting headbands are the way to go... And the main thing, make sure they are comfortable. These are all my styling opinions. Of course, you don't have to follow any of them, because these are your images and I want you to love them, so please dress them comfortably, but please also keep in mind that wardrobe can greatly affect the look of your images. Timeless and classic are, well, timeless and classic. I do have a studio wardrobe for kids that you can use as well. If you are interested in seeing what is offered in your child's size, please send me an email.

I look forward to your session!
