Portrait Photography Tip #5: Kids Health and Safety

Portrait Photography Tips

When you bring your children to the studio, we want them to have a fun time with us.  A photography studio is potentially a dangerous place.  Whilst we make things as safe as possible, a few simple tips will ensure your kids health and safety.  And they’ll enjoy their portrait photography experience.

Take off their shoes.  This applies to everyone really to help keep the floor clean for the next clients’ appointment.

They shouldn’t run wildly round the studio.  I know it sounds obvious but I’ve seen a few run into the background.  We have a wall directly behind the background.  Our support system is wall mounted high so it’s more robust than freestanding supports.

Jumping around and playing, under supervision, within the designated area is fine of course.  This area is exactly where we want them to have a fun time, as it’s where they need to be for photographing 🙂
