Tips and Advice
- Wearing solid, light colored clothing that coordinates makes an attractive photo. Stripes and colorful patterns can be distracting.
- All white tends to blend in with the fence railings and buildings at the Grand Floridian.
- Portrait sessions scheduled for the early in the morning or late in the afternoon generally have the best possible outdoor lighting.
- Before arriving, have an idea of what type of shots you might like (example: formal, silly, themed with props, each family member individually or groupings of several people).
- You might also want to plan your photos around how the photos will be used (example: Christmas cards, passport or other ID photo, high school yearbook, large framed family portrait).
- The $180 mini session generally does not give enough time for wardrobe changes.
