What to Expect on the Day…
If you're reading this, chances are you've booked me to capture this amazingly special time in your lives. This is my jam, my bread and butter, my absolute passion. Thank you for trusting me.
Let me start out by saying, first of all, that your shoot is going to be awesome. 99% of the time the first 10 minutes of any photoshoot can feel a little awkward until you and your famIly can relax into it and feel confident in front of the camera. I will help you guys do this! Trust me, I do it everyday. I'Il always prompt and direct you and never ask you to do something that feels wrong or weird or leave you hanging with no idea what you should be doing next.
We'll cycle through a few different prompts, but there will be lots of room for you to express yourselves too. It'll feel like play - the perfect way to reconnect with each other in a time when most of us lead such busy lives. I'll be sure to provide you with specific directions to find the location (and me, if you don't know what I look like) so you don't get lost.
I promise it will be fun and by the end of the session you'll be total pros in front of the camera. But my objective isn't just to take pretty pictures - it's to capture this exciting stage in your lives, exactly as it is now.
What to Wear…
Look, I get it. Dressing yourself in the morning is tough enough when you don’t have to step in front of a camera. Add the stress of dressing a couple kids and possibly your partner, and things can get hectic real quick!
But the one thing that i want you to remember is being comfortable is everything. It’s normal to want to shop for fancy clothes, and thats fine, but usually the best route is to go with something tried and true.
If you feel like getting a little glammed up, there’s absolutely no reason not to get your hair and makeup done. Just try to keep it as natural as possible. Getting too fancy can look a little out of place tromping through a field with your kids.
Be careful with logos, prints, and bright colors as these often detract from the important parts of the photograph - you!
Avoid matching and blending together into one monochromatic blob. In order for your portrait to really sing, you’ll want to find complimentary outfits that look good together without looking the same.
