Please feel at ease at your session. If you feel pressured to “smile”, natural expressions may be lost. Many of the great images I capture are the “in-between” shots when you relax and forget that you are on a photoshoot. I will have some posed shots but will also capture your interactions with each other.
Good choices in clothing is one of the key elements of a great photo session! For group sessions, clothing should be coordinated, simple and timeless. Favorites are jeans, khaki colored pants, white, black, pastels or neutral colored shirts, sundresses, gowns, hats and bare feet. (Large,busy prints, checkered patterns & geometric designs don’t photograph well). I will check in with you to chat about clothing choices. It is a great idea to plan the outfits two weeks before the session. Lay them out on a bed, step back and take a look. Once you’re happy with your choices, make sure they are clean and wrinkle-free, then set them aside for your session. Don’t forget about shoes and the most overlooked item … the socks! Yes, the socks are important…(the color). This will lower your stress level on session day! Clients are encouraged to include their own props. Examples are: A musical instrument, sports equipment, a book and reading glasses or a family pet.
