Prom night swag β˜πŸΎπŸ’―

The other night I let my wife pick a movie for our movie night date. She chose Lilo and Stich, a film I had never seen before but provided a great story and a break from my recent Marvel comic movie obsession. πŸ”₯

The major theme from the movie was Ohana which Lilo explains means "family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten." 🌊 
It was the perfect compliment to our Easter weekend filled with family.

The morning began with a maternity shoot for my sister in law and ended with a prom shoot for my nephew. πŸ“· 

Bottom line is I would do anything for my Ohana. I am grateful to have a career that allows me to share in the day with them. πŸ’―

I learned a thing or to from my prom photoshoot and wanted to share with you 3 tips to help you complete your first successful shoot posing and photographing teens.

1. Have a Plan

Make sure you have thoroughly scouted your site beforehand and have a good read for light! In many cases the dates will be leaving to the prom shortly after your short, meaning you have a tight schedule to shoot. Create a shot list of important photos such as putting on the corsage.

2. But Shoot the Candids Too! 

While you have a plan, remember to shoot candid shots as well! Remember you are working with a young and youthful group meaning there are plenty of fun moments to be expected. Don't miss them because you were to busy sticking to your shot list.

3. Have Fun With It!

After you get all of the critical shots, you can up the ante and get the group to act silly and be themselves. Get them to laugh, dance, jump up and down, pick each other up. Anything that gets those natural smiles flashing and demonstrates that they are genuinely having a great time!
