You are looking for tips for candid and authentic family photos? Then take a look at this blog post about the amazing family shooting in Peißenberg at the Ammer…

Authentic family photos? How is that supposed to work? My kids never sit still? And we as parents have absolutely no photo experience either.

Trust me: you won’t need any of that at your personal family photo shoot. The only thing that matters for authentic family photos is that you have fun. And have fun as if you were doing something exciting with your kids. For your photos you should not bend or pose stiffly. All photos are taken playfully and we let the kids set the pace.

Tricks for authentic family photos

Your kids love “angel fly”? Perfect. The first great photos have already been taken because you are all having fun.

The next trick is piggybacking or riding on their shoulders. Let’s see how good you dads are as horses and how saddle-proof your little ones are.

Have you all stacked your hands on top of each other and seen which one of you has the biggest hand? I bet it’s the smallest one of you…or is it? Let’s find out during your photo shoot.

And promise me one thing… your kids don’t need to be briefed ahead of time on how to “look smart at the camera”. Do you know what looking smart to the camera means? Because neither do I.

Tell your kids before the family shoot that you’re meeting Anna now and we’re going to do some exciting things together.

And promise me one thing… your kids don’t need to be briefed in advance on how to “look smart into the camera”. Do you know what looking cleverly into the camera means? Because neither do I.

Tell your kids before the family shoot that you’re meeting Anna now and we’re going to do some exciting things together.

Tell your kids a few things about me so they know me a little bit beforehand. For example, that I love chocolate more than anything, that I have a son named Noah, that I have a horse (some of the girls still know the name of my horse after a year) and that I always have a camera with me, with which we can record the experience for you and grandma and grandpa. That’s enough, too.

Your personal photo experience

Have you now also got the desire for authentic family photos? Feel free to contact me without obligation and we will of course discuss everything you want to know in advance and talk about your wishes and favorite places.

You know your children best and I know a lot of great and exciting photo locations. I am sure that there is the right one for you and your children.

Look forward to your family… see you very soon.
