SESSION TIPS

Here are some photo session suggestion and tips! 

TIME:

  • Be on time. I schedule sessions back to back, so it is important to be on time, so we don't fall behind schedule. Having outfits, props, etc ready a few hours or even the night before the photo session will help alleviate anyone feeling rushed. This is not only your time but my time as well, especially when I have multiple sessions in one day. We both want to make the best use of our time. 

  • Not everyone likes getting their photo taken and some get forced into the session.I completely understand that. Please let those individuals know and to  keep in mind that this photo session could be a gift or memory made for a family member, friend, etc that will be much appreciated in the moment and down the road. I move quick and would appreciate the cooperation. Again, we want to make the best use of our time.  

OUTFITS:

  • Keep clothing simple and consistent, wearing solids is more preferred than patterns. 

  • For family photos, coordinate your outfits from head to toe. 

  • Wearing darker colors will look more slimming and formal. 

  • Wearing light colors looks good against light backgrounds for a more natural look.

  • Glasses make sure they are anti glare. 

  • If you wear shaded lenses consider none shaded lenses or no glasses for photos.

  • Feel free to add accessories such as scarves, jewelry, etc. 

HAIR & MAKEUP: 

  • During outdoor sessions, it can be windy, it is recommended to have hair product on hand should you need reinforcements during the sessions.

  • Keep make up at a minimum. We want the most natural look. 

 

NEWBORNS & YOUNG CHILDREN: 

  • Please schedule photo sessions after their nap. 

MATERNITY: 

  • Schedule your photo session when you are seven to eight months into your pregnancy when you have a full showing belly. 

PROPS:

  • Feel free to bring any props and accessories that you want to use that will add a personal touch to your photos.

 

WEDDINGS: 

  • Please give me a copy a of the wedding day itinerary including time and locations of everything that is happening. I would like this a few days before the wedding day.

  • A list of all your family and friends combinations, that way we don't miss anyone. I would like this a few days before the wedding day.

  • Communicate with your guest on the time and location of where they need to be so we do not miss and have to go searching for anyone. 

  • I would like the cell number of the personal attendant, best man, or the best contact who will be with the couple with an accessible phone,  just in case I need to get a hold of the couple or they need to get a hold of me.

  • Let me know of any photo restrictions before hand if there are any. (i.e. no photos allowed in a certain part of a building or during a part of the ceremony).
