… This is a question we get asked on a daily basis.
And while my answer will depend on the number of and ages of the kids, I always tell clients that it will be clear when the session time is up. Most child or family photo sessions last between 45-80 minutes. That’s our standard time quote. But… newborn sessions take longer (at least 2 hours!), and cold weather may wear out the kids sooner. If I need more, I’ll suggest a break, or try to trick the kids into cooperating a bit longer; but if I am happy with what we’ve got, the kids can call the shots.
Take a look at this recent outdoor photo session, and see if YOU can tell when it was time to call it quits!
