Where should we go to take the photos?
•I shoot “on-location.” I don't have a formal studio so I come to you. Locations can be at your home, your yard, a local park, the beach or that "great location" down the street. The options of where we can go are endless!
•I prefer natural light (whether that's outdoors or indoors near a window).
How long does a session last?
•The portrait session will last up to 2 hours with breaks for feeding, diaper changes/bathroom breaks (especially with young children).
•To ensure the best results, be sure that everyone is rested and fed. If possible, limit children's sugar intake on the day of the session.
What should we wear?
•Clothing is up to you!
•Suggestions: Jeans or Khakis work well. Try your best to avoid clothing with bright/busy patterns, visible designer logos or writing on it. In general, solid colors are best.
•Simplicity is important for your clothing and accessories. Darker clothing minimizes, while lighter clothing slightly emphasizes body size.
•There's no need for everyone in the family to match each other, but you should consider colors that compliment each other. Varying shades of the same color and earth tones work well.
•Try to avoid wearing white, off white, cream, or very pale pink for outdoor shoots as the sun tends to wash out the color.
•And don't forget your shoes! Shoes are just as important as your clothes because they show in photos. Most often, dark-toned shoes work best. Bare feet can be fun as well where appropriate.
