Portrait Tips: How to Minimize a Child’s Glamour Shots Complaints

It’s a fact: many children don’t like sitting for portraits. For small kids, the room can seem stuffy, the photographers can seem scary, and the fancy clothes can be uncomfortable. It can be tough to get the perfect portraits with all of these problems.

Thankfully, Glamour Shots makes the process hassle-free for young children and their parents. The photographers there are skilled at working with children, and they can help minimize any Glamour Shots complaints with their professionalism and compassion. What can a parent do to make a portrait shoot even more comfortable? Here are four easy-to-implement ideas.

1. Let the child help choose his or her outfits.

By letting the little boy or girl help decide on the clothing, parents lessen the likelihood of future tantrums. Of course, any fancy outfit can be uncomfortable for kids, but if they’re wearing something they helped pick out, they’ll feel more special and important.

2. Look at other portraits for inspiration.

Kids love looking at pictures. Parents can make portraits seem fun by showing their children other fancy photographs and asking which they like best. That way, the kids will have a better understanding of how pretty the finished product can be.

3. Bring a favorite toy — and a few snacks.

If the child gets nervous around strangers, parents should keep a treasured toy on hand to help soothe any fears. Plus, a juice box or some apple slices can often go a long way in preventing any grumpiness.

4. Plan a post-portrait treat.

Though, parents might be reticent to promise unhealthy snacks as a reward, planning a special outing after the portrait session lets children get excited about the entire day. Mom and Dad can rent a favorite movie or take their little ones shopping for a new picture book after the shoot.

Glamour Shots are a great way to commemorate a special occasion. With these four tips, any parent can help avoid Glamour Shots complaints and get the most beautiful portraits.
