WHEN TO BOOK
you call dibs
it’s always a good idea to grab the date you want in advance and i recommend at least 3-4 weeks prior. this gives you time to prep and pay, with the best booking to fit your schedule.
when TO SHOOT
it’s all about that sunset
i primarily photograph at sunset/golden hour to have the best warm glow and even lighting possible.
HOW TO PREP
take that nap, eat some food, hit that bathroom, and grab that coffee. photo sessions are no fun when you’ve got zero energy and an empty stomach.
WHERE TO GO
choose a sentimental place that your kids love to play at or a go for a quiet in-home session where you’re most comfortable. explore your local town or get back to nature in a nearby park. just make it personal to you.
WHAT TO WEAR
keep it comfy, casual, and classy
i’m a fan of darker colors mixed with neutrals and a few patterns. avoid neon or overly dominate colors like bright red or orange. make sure you’re comfortable no matter what position (standing, sitting, walking) and if ya want to get fancy, make it your first outfit.
what to bring
prep vs. prop
summer: bottled water
spring + fall: layers
winter: snuggle blanket
kids: bribe with after session ice cream
pets: all the treats; water if needed*
OPTIONAL PROP IDEAS
maternity: sonogram, baby shoes
hs senior: cap, tassle, senior ring
toddler birthday: CAKE to SMASH
HOW TO POSE
be authentically you
i’m all about the candids, giving you free reign to get real. i help with some direction along the way but you’re in charge of your session. bring that confidence, the laughs and crazy faces, bring who you are to the surface.
just in case
+ prep for weather
+ have an “in-case-of-rain” backup date
+ leave your phone in the car
+ don’t worry about time
+ communicate openly
+ trust the process
the portrait timeline
I handle everything for my clients personally - from the original connect form to the final delivery.
At the end of the day, not only will you invest in amazing photos, but you’ll truly enjoy your portrait experience.
