If you have kids you will have stuff. Coming by car it means you won't have to cart as much paraphernalia, but if you're coming by taxi, mrt, or bus you'll have a stroller, carseat, and bag of tricks and treats to keep them happy. Traveling light helps when it comes to keeping the flow of the shoot as natural as possible, but if you have the above don't worry it won't affect the final outcome. We will work to keep it out of the shots.
Young kids don't have a very high tolerance level and need entertainment, bring along their favourite toy, their favourite snack, or their favourite book. And in my experience having a bargaining chip has never hurt - a chocolate or a promise of an ice cream after the session will get you some pretty happy kids.
This is an easy one, it's hot, always. So be as cool and comfortable as possible. Choose breathable fabrics, natural colours like ivories, pastels, beiges, rust, burnt orange, yellows and mustards, dusty pinks. No bold prints, no black no dark colours. No flip flops. If outdoors, please bring along that mosquito repellent!
