3 Excuses You Should Stop Making & Get Your Family Photo Done Today!

10K Portraits is a door step service for family photos and portraits. Photo shoot will be done at your home or outdoors. No more boring studio visits! Let me help you overcome common objections and get you a lovely family photo in no time. 

How long have you been thinking about booking

a family photo session?

 

Is it just one of those ‘to do’ list items that never gets checked off?

Some of my client families told me it’s since few months (or even years) that they’ve been  thinking about booking a family photo session before they finally manage to it.

 

The reason that got them to finally go ahead is usually a child going abroad for studies, a parent going on a long trip abroad or something like that. It is usually a turning point in their lives when they decide that it is 'now or never'! 

After the session when they see the lovely portraits of the family, there's always this lingering regret that they should have got more family photos done, every year perhaps or once a couple of years at least. 

It is the feeling you could avoid easily but these 3 common excuses play the spoil sport. Being aware of these excuses you are likely to make, you can work around them and do what's important but not urgent and avoid the feeling of regret.

 

Lets dive right in!

Excuse No. 1 - The photos will come out better if you wait until the house is redecorated or if you or your spouse could lose some weight 

Really? How long will you keep telling yourself that the time is not right?
Wait, let me guess, FOREVER!!

​Tip: Get a portrait done today as-is and if and when your house is refurbished, if and when your lose weight or whatever you are expecting/planning to do, get another portrait done. You have before and after, you lose nothing!

The timing is never going to be right for a perfectionist! You seek perfect time for photos and it always eludes you like a mirage. Do you know why? The perfect time is  NOW.  

 

Meanwhile your kids are growing up, quietly, every day. You can't turn the clock back and ask your 7 year old to become her 3 year old self again. That is not happening.

The best time to get your family portrait done is/was 4 years back. The next best is TODAY!

Tip: Get a portrait done today as-is and if and when your house is refurbished, if and when your lose weight or whatever you are expecting/planning to do, get another portrait done. You have before and after, you lose nothing!

Excuse No. 2 - What’s the need for booking a family photo session, when you can take a ton of photos of your kids on your phone, right?

How much would you pay if only someone offers to get you your childhood photos you never knew existed?

Would you say, "I don't need them, too expensive!" I don't think so!

Family photos are an investment you must not avoid or you will only feel regret.

Tip: By all means shoot as many photos on your phone as you can also have a family photo taken by a professional once in a year or two. Even if your data is lost somehow, you will still have valuable memories hanging on the wall, you got nothing to lose, you will definitely have no regrets!

You can take so many photos on your phone, but you are never in them!

Do you ever get to actually printing any of them?

Do you at least browse through them? 

Are your photos as good as professional family portraits?

Imagine having a nice family portrait or several of them hanging on your living room wall!

How does watching the family photos on your phone compare to that?

Tip: By all means shoot as many photos on your phone as you can also have a family photo taken by a professional once in a year or two. Even if your data is lost somehow, you will still have valuable memories hanging on the wall, you got nothing to lose, you will definitely have no regrets!

Excuse No. 3 - You have no free time – for booking a photographer and planning a family photo session, let alone for the photo session itself.

Really? How about the time you spend watching IPL day after day?
What about the time you wasted binge watching  your favorite TV series? Game of Thrones?

The thing with life is, you will never find time for things that REALLY matter!
You will have to make time!
Things that are really important are rarely urgent!!

Tip: This is an easy one! Just contact me and I will help you plan the shoot, help you decide what to wear, preparation tips etc. I will hand hold you through the process and give you a printed and framed family photo in no time while you go about your life and work. It is easy and doesn't take as much time as you think it would. It'd be worth it too!

Finding a photographer can be overwhelming.

Planning a photo session and getting it done takes time and effort away from your day to day activities. Grown up kids or adolescents will have their own objections and excuses for participating in the shoot. But remember, that is how life is for everyone!

These obstacles are always going to be there and they will stop you from taking a day off and relishing your time with your family unless you take the leap.

These are just a sample of many, many excuses you know. People can get very creative in inventing reasons (excuses) why something can't be done today, now. But family photos are something you can't postpone or put off for later because with each day your kids are growing and they are not going to be the same next month. Even if you are just a couple, today will pass by and tomorrow is a different day.

Don't wait for tomorrow or later because time waits for no one! Let me help you with this...

Ravi made me comfortable and produced excellent headshots and family portraits.

Ravi is a wonderful photographer.
For a guy like me who just cant laugh, getting a headshot done was indeed a challenge. However Ravi made me comfortable with my surroundings and literally brought out the best in me! Good clean photos that did the job perfectly. We ended doing a family portrait as well and this too was equally good.
I highly recommend him for your next project!

Plan a separate session for family photos. Click on the relevant buttons to check the pricing for each.

  • How often should I change my professional photos?
    If your online portrait is noticeably different from how you really look, it's time for a new one. If you change your hairstyle, got a new pair of glasses, or gained or lost weight or if your current headshot is more than 1 year old, it is a good time for an updated headshot. We change and age visibly in one year and significantly in two years.
  • What's best to wear for my professional photoshoot?
    Choosing a suit in neutral colors such as navy blue, charcoal gray, or black with a crisp white or striped shirt is the ideal choice. Avoid bold patterns and bright colors that can be too distracting in the photograph. Before your headshot session, I will provide you with a detailed guide and during the session, I will help you decide the right attire that brings out your best.
  • What should I not wear for my professional photo shoot?
    This is an easier question to answer. Creased, crumpled clothes are not to be worn at all. Old shirts and trousers which were washed several times are supposed to be donated to the less privileged. Shirts with collars that collapse...either get them fixed (yes that's possible) or donate them.
  • Should I smile in my business portrait?
    There are no rules, you can smile, or not smile, or just have a hint of a smile. In many cases, a well-executed smile can convey competence, trustworthiness, approachability, confidence, and likeability. During the headshot session, I will help you decide how much of a smile is right for you keeping your needs, branding objectives in mind. If you choose to smile, I will coach in getting a great smile that brings out the best in you. With a minimum of three edited photos included in my headshot photography session, you have the scope to try a range of expressions, and you can use whichever one is the most appropriate for your personal brand. For instance, a shot with a more serious expression might suit a webpage detailing the services you offer, while a more cheerful look might fit better on an 'about' page, where you’ll want to show a bit more of your personality.
  • My teeth are not too good, should I smile wide in my professional photo shoot?
    The question is what you like, what you are comfortable with not what you think how others are going to judge you. Good or not good are just our opinions and they are inherently relative. If you are not comfortable with your teeth showing in your headshot, you may avoid smiling or you may smile enough without revealing your teeth. A headshot is you, it is about you not about the others.
  • I am not photogenic/ I don’t look like a model. In fact, I strongly dislike my ________(nose/chin/any thing else) and am worried it will ruin my pictures. Is there a way around this?
    You don't need to look like a model to get photos taken. We can work around anything about your appearance that you’re uncomfortable with. If you have something specific that you’re self conscious about, (as well as anything about your body that you love and want to focus on!) let’s chat about it before your session gets started so I can be aware of it as I shoot. I guarantee zero judgments.
  • I hate having my photo taken. How will you make me look good?
    I will try and make you comfortable and get into the right mindset for the shoot. However you will have to trust me and trust my process, take my suggestions, cues and work with me, cooperate with me. For any reason you are unable to do so, the outcome may not be what you are looking for. Please note that there are no magic tricks to make people look good unless they are willing and open to suggestions.
  • Should I wear jewelry for my professional photo shoot?
    You may! There are no rules. It is a matter of what is appropriate for your specific needs. For corporate headshots, jewelry should be minimal so as not to cause distraction. If your needs are different, you are the best judge as to what to do.
  • Should I put on makeup for my professional photo shoot?
    Yes but please keep it minimal for corporate headshots. For formal headshots, please avoid eye shades or anything overboard.
  • Should I wear my glasses for my professional photo shoot?
    If you normally wear glasses, yes. Keep the cleaning eyeglass cloth handy however.
  • Is there anything else I should do to prepare for my professional photo shoot?
    Make sure to get a good night’s sleep before your shoot - also minimize alcohol to two drinks in the evening before the shoot - but feel free to fulfill the shortfall in the quota after the shoot. Drink plenty of water to make you feel and look your best! Also make sure you iron or steam the clothing choices you are going to wear into your session and decide on how you will style your hair and/or makeup. Please go through the preparation tips I share with you when you book a session.
