Themed Photoshoots: Worth It Or Nah?

At some point, you’re going to ask yourself: “Should I do a themed photoshoot?” Maybe you’re the one behind the camera, or maybe you’re the one who’s going to be in front of it. But either way — is it worth all the hassle?

But before we dive in, let’s explain exactly what a “themed” photoshoot is!

It could be something like our upcoming Harley & Joker photos. It’s a photoshoot with a specific theme. Everyone at this shoot is going to be dressed as Harley or Joker.

The shoot doesn’t necessarily have to be cosplay related, it could just have a “theme.” We’ve done Southern Belle shoots (with a lil’ cowboy for good measure):

A lot of times, a photographer sets the theme and makes a day of it. But sometimes clients come to us outside of one of our specials and ask us to help them with a theme they personally want in their photos.

These photos below were “Disbound” Belle & Beast. When we get requests like this, it’s an opportunity to find new photo locations that fit, too!

From a photographer’s standpoint, themed photoshoots are fun. They’re apart from the every day family or maternity session — which, of course, we still love — but themed shoots are a great change of pace.

From the perspective of someone who participates in a themed shoot, it’s a unique opportunity, and you know the photos are going to be one-of-a-kind.

So, are themed shoots worth it? Our opinion is a resounding “YES!!!”

They’re much more work than regular photoshoots, but the fun makes up for it!

And just to prove it, we will be announcing our Lemonade Stand Mini Sessions later this month!

 

Look forward to it! And make sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up with our latest shenanigans!
