PREPARING FOR Your Session

Look. Soft and neutral. Colorful and coordinated? Whatever your style, we'll take that into account when planning your session. Need a second set of eyes on your wardrobe choices? I'm here to help!  


Location. Often, the most simple, unexpected spots yield the most beautiful photos. If you've chosen a premium session, we'll narrow down your aesthetic preferences and I'll suggest some options. 


Light. Without great light, even the most scenic location can fall flat. That's why it's my first priority. We'll work around your family's scheduling needs while optimizing the availability of ambient light, assuming Mother Nature cooperates! 

My words of wisdom? Start with an open mind and don't stress too much.

Family photos should be fun, not frustrating.

What to wear

Frustrated trying to figure out what to wear? 

Soft neutrals
are always sure thing. Think ivory, blush, camel, tan, taupe, olive, gray, dusty blues, roses and lavenders, etc. Plus, they provide a great foundation to add accents. Add subtle interest with textures like chunky knits, chambray, suede, waffle knit, faux fur, lace or crochet, linen, etc. 

Want to push the envelope a bit? Try adding pops of jewel and earth tones or integrating a pattern. Some of my favorites include stripes, florals, plaid, cable knit, herringbone, marled knit, mini dots, etc. 

Use caution with super bold patterns which can overpower the scene and extra bright colors like neons, super hot pinks, saturated corals or aquas that can reflect odd color casts on skin. They're not completely off limits, but if you're in doubt, feel free to message me.

If you're unsure, feel free to snap a quick pic and text or email me. I'm happy to help advise ahead of time. Bottom line: Don't stress too much, just choose something that you feel like a million bucks in. Confidence is always in style. 

Thanks! We'll be in touch!
