If you're interested in me being your photographer, the first thing that will take place is a casual phone call to get to know each other a little bit and to talk about what I offer and how we can mold that to fit your specific needs. At this time we will also go over my package offers, pricing, and answer any questions you may have!
It is no secret that getting your picture taken can be awkward and or stressful. In your session experience, I will lighten the mood and help draw out your personality! I will embarrass myself to make you laugh. Seriously!!! There really is no length that I will not go to help you get the most natural, relaxed photos from your session. My goal is to create a memorable day with you and whoever you are with! I want you to look back at this day and think, "oh my gosh that was so much fun!!" instead of dreading the next milestone event in your life because you have to have pictures for it. By the end of our session, I hope it will feel like we have been friends for years and that you look forward to your next session as much as I do!
Your session will take place at a location of your choice. The best way to figure out where you want your pictures is to ask yourself what type of person or family you are! Are you homebodies or spend a lot of time outdoors? Do you like the beach, city life, gardens, or rolling hills? I can photograph you in a place that is very meaningful to you!
The typical time for any session lasts from about 60 minutes to 90 minutes for most sessions.
Wear something that you feel comfortable in! When you are comfortable, you're happy! And when you're happy and comfortable, your images will be even better! If you're in a family session, I do caution against being too matchy-matchy and to try to stay away from the typical everyone’s wearing white or black shirts and blue jeans' or having everyone wear the same shirt.
Those options don’t allow you to express who you are as a fun-loving individual, or family! Also, feel free to spice it up with accessories, your favorite shoes, a unique headband. Things that really show who you are individually and as a family, depending on your session. Ultimately, it is entirely up to you what you wear :)
You can also think about bringing some props. Does your family enjoy having a picnic under a huge tree at the park or even at the beach? Why not bring those picnic supplies and enjoy some family time during your session. How cool would that be?! Or do you like to play football or listen to music? Go ahead and bring it! I’m always up for a dance party.
