Welcome to Macpherson Photography! We’re so glad you found us. If you are looking for family portrait photography in Dewey Beach Delaware you have come to the right place. Dewey Beach is known for its great night life in Delaware but it is also an amazing location for a family vacation. Here are a few tips if you are going to have a family portrait taken while you are in Dewey Beach.
Remember to have fun. Don’t stress too much over the kids outfits or having everyone’s hair perfectly done. It’s the beach, it’s laid back. We want to create a family portrait session that is relaxed and stress free. Please don’t freak out on the kids or your significant other 15 minutes before you shoot. Stay relaxed and in vacation mode.
Keep in mind we will be on the beach. It’s sandy. If you get a little sandy and wet that’s normal. Please don’t break the bank on outfits for your portraits lol. If you have toddlers you know exactly what is going to happen. The more you try and keep them out of the sand and water the more they will end up covered with sand and water. It’s a fact of life! It can also be breezy, something to keep in mind if you have to have perfect hair.
Over the years of photographing hundreds of families on the beach, we encounter everything. The one thing I still can’t figure out is if helicopter parents know that they are being a helicopter parent.
If you feel the need to micromanage your child’s poses and expressions you could fall into that category. If this is you, don’t worry. Aside from being the best photographers we have to be almost psychologists. Kids react different for parents then for other people. When we are photographing the children sometimes we take them just off to the side and work on getting great expressions. When parents aren’t standing right there they tend to loosen up and have fun.
