I will be conducting a portrait taking session for my friend. Being my first time taking family portraits, I would like to hear from the more experienced guys out there, what are the things to look out for? Eg, the type of backdrops commonly used, props (if any). What are the general types of poses?

Thanks in advance :)

Oh and btw, which studio would you guys recommend? Will need to rent for an hour, preferably in a central location.

For a central location, try Brett's
LINEARSTUDIOS. $40/hr, if I'm not mistaken. Can vouch for the quality of the studio and the service from Brett and his team.

Have not tried Bobmann's studio - $50 for 3 hours. In Paya Lebar.

Also, there's Astin's Studio-Workz. Since you want a centrally located studio, it's quite far (in Loyang), $120 for 4 hours... dunno Astin's hourly rate. Very comfy studio and worth the travelling time!
