LOCATION:

Our location will be determined the evening before our scheduled session based on the weather and lighting conditions in the forecast. I will be in touch the night before to secure the location details with you.

 

TIPS FOR PARENTS:

Please allow me to direct your children as much as possible. I will be attempting to capture their eye contact {which will be more difficult if I am competing with a parent}. 

 

CLOTHING:

Coordinating colors not matching. 
Long gone are the days of everyone wearing a white shirt and matching. Instead, pick a "family" of colors and choose clothing that will fit in this color scheme. Mix and match patterns and solids. Do not match - do not clash. Avoid all white or all black clothing.

Look at your home decor.
Since you will be displaying these portraits in your home you will want to make sure the colors of your clothing will coordinate with the color scheme of your home. Neutrals are a great way to play it safe.

Don’t forget accessories.
Accessories add a pop of color and texture.

Plan ahead.
Once you book your session, start thinking of clothing. 

Say no to words, labels, and characters.
Symbols, words, and cartoon characters on shirts can be pretty distracting.

Textures are your friend.
Add textures like vests, scarves or belts to add a little more to the image.

Think classic.
Your portraits will be treasured for years to come. By choosing simple, classic clothing you will help give your images a timeless feel.
