Planning for your upcoming session

WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT TO HAPPEN AT OUR SESSION?
Come ready to have fun!  I like to to keep your session relaxed and natural and I try to keep the posing to a minimum. I will do everything I can to make your session comfortable as well as productive!

WHAT DO WE WEAR?
Trying to coordinate outfits for a family can be tough!  It’s best to keep it simple though and try not to overthink it.  I recommend picking 3-4 complementary colors and carry them throughout your family’s outfits. Don’t forget to choose something that you and your family will feel good in! If you’re feeling good it will shine through in your photos!

TIPS FOR SESSIONS WITH CHILDREN:
1. GET THEM EXCITED ABOUT THE SESSION IN ADVANCE.
Kids and adults alike want to know what is coming. An idea could be to plan a surprise, such as a trip to the ice cream shop or a night out at a favorite restaurant.
2. FEED THEM.
Full tummies (or at least not hungry tummies) make for happy kids. If you are planning a family dinner out afterwards, give your children a snack before dressing or pack some (non-messy) snacks for the road. Children are more likely to be restless and easily upset when they are hungry.
3. BRING ALONG THEIR FAVORITE TOY OR COMFORT.
If your child needs a break from pictures to snuggle up, it’s nice to have that comfort on hand. Furthermore, including that “snuggy” in some pictures speaks to what your family life is truly like at this time and someday you may look back on those pictures warmly remembering when your little one just couldn’t bear to be without “kitty.”

 

WHEN WILL I SEE MY PHOTOS?
About 2 weeks after your session, I will have the images from your session edited and in your own private online viewing gallery.
