Sessions are relaxed and fun! Most decisions regarding location and styling will take place prior to the day of the shoot. The styling component is an important element in creating the mood of the portrait, I work closely with the majority of my clients in terms of styling, location, etc. Sessions run smoothly when we have a creative concept in advance to work off of.
It typically takes one and a half to two weeks for me to edit your images. Once finished, I will provide you with an online gallery for your review. Ordering should take place within three weeks of the posting of your online gallery. Galleries expire in 30 days. This should give you plenty of time to narrow down and select your images.
I recommend wearing something with a lot of texture, this seems to photography better than fabrics that are flat. For example, even though a beautiful cotton dress may look amazing in person, this often looks flat in a photograph. If you like cotton fabric, layer a scarf or necklace to help create some visual interest. For footwear, I typically suggest shoes and/or boots for outdoors (something that compliments the outfit) and bare feet for indoors.
It can be difficult to coordinate colors and not look too matchy. I recommend picking a few colors, but try not to put them in the same exact clothing. The more layers, textures and colors… the better. Try to pick colors that compliment each other. I recommend bright or deep colors (jewel tones like deep purple, mustard yellow, turquoise, dark pink, etc.) and try to stay away from all white.
I do recommend investing in your child’s clothing for the session, since it does make a huge difference in the final product. Search out local or online boutiques, they have one-of-a-kind styles.
