muted tones, complimentary colors, layers + fabrics that allow movement/flow. avoid bright colors, busy patterns and matching outfits. ultimately, wear something that makes you feel confident, comfortable and most like you!
WHAT IF MY KIDS WON’T ENGAGE?
Totally ok! A lot of kids can be shy or not be down for posing for photos (mine are the poster children for this!) which is why I won’t be trying to pose them but focusing on capturing the moments of you guys hanging out and loving on one another.
will you pose us?
i love stepping back and capturing people in their element, interacting with each other in their most natural way. don’t worry though, i won’t leave you feeling awkward and unsure of what’s happening. i’ll definitely be suggesting something to do to encourage movement or fun interactions. think of it less as a photoshoot and more of me coming to hang with you all while documenting the lovely season you’re in. i’m there to capture your unique story in a beautiful and authentic way.
WHAT’S THE RAIN PLAN?
We can reschedule to a date that works for you or we can embrace the rain, splash around and shoot as planned!
SHOULD our home be spotless?
only if that’ll make you feel more at ease but i definitely understand and am more than ok if there are messes, believe me…i have them in my home too! if it helps you plan, rooms i am drawn to photograph in are bedrooms because they’re so cozy and any other area in your home that gets beautiful light streaming through.
can you photoshop us?
I like to keep the images as true to you as possible, so i do not alter the appearance of anyone from my sessions with photoshop.
how many photos will we get?
you can expect at least 35-45 images but i promise if there are must-have photos past the 45 number, i won’t hold back. i want you to have all the gems from your session!
when will my photos be ready?
turnaround is two weeks
do you offer mini sessions?
in the past, I have opened my books for mini sessions, usually at one location with time slots. these sessions are portrait focused. i am not currently offering them but keep an eye out on Instagram… that’s where i’d announce mini session slots being available for booking.
are you taking any weddings?
at this time no, but i have some incredibly talented wedding photographer friends that i can recommend!
how do i book a session?
first off, yay! can’t wait to chat. next, you can go ahead and fill out the form in my reach out page and from there i will send my lifestyle booklet with pricing and details. I require a 50% deposit to lock in your session date two weeks prior to the shoot.
