Start communicating this with your little ones to get them mentally prepared and excited to meet the photographer. Communicating with your children about when your family photos will take place goes a long way. I have seen kids show up to a session with no idea of what is going on, and they were absolutely terrified of working with me because their parents had not communicated to them about family photos. They were thrown in the family vehicle and brought to the location (or I showed up to their house), and it did not go well. Regardless of the child’s age, start talking to them about the family photography session, what you all are going to wear, what funny faces you can make, etc. Remember to engage with your kids so that they can start imagining what the session will be like. When you communicate with your children about expectations, you’d be surprised how much information they retain
