Portrait Sessions...

A portrait session takes up to one hour on-location, with an unlimited amount of people and clothing changes. As a result, you'd receive around 100 images in high resolution on a password protected gallery, where you'll be able to view, download, and order prints.

 

Here's what I'm thinking.

I strive to capture real, raw moments. Don’t worry about your kiddos (or even yourselves!) getting some dirt or grass on themselves. The quicker you let go, the quicker we’ll see those real smiles -- and kids being their true selves. If you’re worried about the kids not sitting still for very long, that’s okay too! Spin, tickle, jump, run, talk, laugh, and maybe even grab some snacks! I’m usually waiting on connections, not everyone’s smiling faces looking directly at my camera. And with little ones, don’t feel like you need to pull pacifiers or fingers out of mouths. They won’t be like this for long, and capturing their quirks and habits during this very moment in time is all a part of lifestyle photography, and I hope a big part of why you want to hire me.

 

So go throw on some clothes.

Think about the environment we choose to shoot in. I am constantly suggesting solid, neutral colors. So think, whites, creams, tans, grays, and black for a timeless look. Pick two or even three colors, and don't limit yourself to the same shade. If you want to get even more specific, I suggest jeans and dresses for family sessions. For a pregnant mama, a full-length dress. For newborn sessions, a nice t-shirt, and no buttoned-up shirts. For engaged couples, dress like you would for a casual date night.
