Thanks For Booking with Me! It's time for your photo session!
My goal is to make this a fun experience. The tips below will allow you to have the best possible session. Remember, no single session is perfect, and it doesn't have to be! As long as you're having fun!
Here are a few tips to help you prepare for our shoot.
Your photos should be as unique as you are. I encourage you to add any element of "you" that you'd like! Whether it's props or going back to a place that is special to you, your family or your significant other. Keep in mind that public areas may attract crowds, the best way to avoid large groups is booking earlier in the day.
*Give yourself plenty of time to get ready.
*Eat before our session. Don't come hungry!
*If you do have children, consider bringing a favorite toy or even a small snack to keep them happy and full!
The location of the shoot can add a whole lot of meaning about who you are and the message you want to send. The images will be focused on you but a great background adds variations of texture, color, lines, and light. In general, I like to divide locations in either an urban or natural location.
Urban Spots - Cool alleys and great architecture. We can shoot in an urban space at pretty much any time of the day or night since there is plenty of great shade and lighting.
Natural Spots - Surrounded by trees, open fields, or water. The best time to shoot in open spaces is within an hour after sunrise or an hour before sunset so we can capture shots during golden hour.
The biggest challenge in getting ready for a photo session is choosing what to wear. You can bring a few options in case you want to vary your look or change your mind as we start to shoot.
Ladies, If you’re getting a hair cut for your shoot, do so about two weeks before, just in case it goes wrong – you just never know. For men, a fresh cut a couple of days before the shoot is fine.
Hair accessories – If we’re shooting outdoors, be ready to put your hair up and make it look nice in case of a windy day. Bring a brush, bobby pins, hair clips, headbands or any other favorite accessories.
