SESSION INFORMATION

With any type of session, I am always open to suggestions and ideas. I want this to be an amazing, inspiring and personalized experience which will result in personal and beautiful pictures. Here are some helpful tidbits and info to answer all your questions.

FAMILY

WHAT TO EXPECT Family sessions will range from 1 to 2 hours. With small children, exoect to run, play, blow bubbles and enjoy some sunshine.
Don’t worry if your kids aren’t that interested in getting their photo taken. Allow them to be themselves and I will do the talking (or chasing). It’s best not to push them into saying “cheese” and or forcing a pose. I would much rather capture them naturally.
Expect many hugs!

WHAT TO WEAR You don’t all need to wear the same color t-shirt or clothing. Instead, for a fun idea, perhaps have everyone dress in similar shades of the same color. Or choose 3/4 colors that go well together. For example, Navy, beige, gray and white. Fall tones. I only dont advise overpowering, loud prints. Solids do better (prints pull the sttention away from the subjects add more confusion over all).
Feel free to bring changes of clothing and accessories. And when in doubt, go simple! Jeans and t-shirts, bare feet or a flowy summer dress is always perfect.

LOCATION AND TIME As a natural light photographer, I love to photograph families outside. Bright mid day sunlight is not necessary. Cloudy days work out be even better. Before your session we’ll agree on a location that’s full of trees, and/or shade.
Do you prefer an urban feel? Just say so! As a city girl, I am happy and brimming with fun ideas to get you the perfect look.
Other fun ideas; I love old barns, trucks, brick walls and anything with texture. If you have a suggestion for your location let me know. Time allowed, Ill try to scope it out before. I like to try to plan family sessions during the last 1-3 hours before sunset. This is the best light and will be the most flattering for everyone. However, no worries. We can make anytime work.

NEWBORNS

TIME FRAME
 Newborn wrapping sessions are best when the baby is 2 weeks old or younger so that the baby is still very sleepy, curly and hasn’t gotten the baby acne that tends to show up around 2-3 weeks old. However, as these sessions are NOT the "wrapped baby in a basket" session, but will be a lifestyle newborn sessions, we have more time to play. Moms, dads, and siblings are all invited to participate. Up to 6 weeks 2 months is recommended.

WHAT TO BRING
 Bring, or have available anything that may be special to you or the baby. Blankets, hats, toys, baskets, pillows, etc. Whatever you like. Let me know if we will be photographing you (the parents) or siblings as well.

MATERNITY

TIME FRAME I prefer to book maternity sessions between 6 and 8 months, depending on how you’re feeling and showing. Please contact me as soon as you can so I can schedule your session in that time frame.

WHAT TO WEAR Clothing that hug your curves to show your beautiful baby belly to get the full effect can be fun. Or maybe something flowy in empire style. Whatever your choice, I recommend solid colors or soft prints. We can do a few different clothing changes as well.

PORCHraits

Welcome to a new session created during the time of quarantine. This allowed family sessions to happen with the comfort of never having to leave your front porch. (Porch-raits - Like Portraits from your porch!)

TIME FRAME These sessions typically take up to 15 minutes and get between 1-5 quick poses. Fun, easy and much less stressful. Worried about the kids not making it thru a full hour (or dad?) Then this is a perfect way to get that full family pic without having to travel.

WHAT TO WEAR Very often I meet families who want to represent the real them. Want to stand outside in your pajamas and slippers? Sounds fun to me. Kids in mismatched clothes but you’re thrilled they got dressed? Fantastic. Want to get dressed to the nines and pretend its a party? Amazing! Costumes? Now that's just adorable.
Just be you. Sky is the limit!

BOUDOIR/GLAMOUR

Boudoir or also known as glamour photography are for those who want to celebrate the beautiful you. Each and every person is beautiful. Some of us just dont see it...yet. "Boudoir" is the french term for a woman's dressing or bedroom. These sessions are most commonly done in your home or hotel rooms, but sky is the limit.
Boudoir photographs are intimate, tasteful, romantic, yet sexy and beautiful.
Boudoir sessions are very popular among brides, as well as a great gift idea for your anniversaries, your or your significant others birthday, perhaps in the celebration of weight loss or cosmetic alterations, or just because. My aim is to help women of any age, size or shape feel confident, beautiful and sexy. The idea is to have fun and feel good about yourself, not to mention a fun and daring adventure. The aim is to create beautiful and sensual images for you to keep forever.

Please email me with any questions. Or perhaps just for details about the sessions, scheduling, locations, pricing, etc.

LETS DO THIS!!
