QUICK TIPS

Quick Tips

FOR YOUR PERFECT PHOTOSHOOT

PLAN YOUR CLOTHING

PLAN YOUR CLOTHING

Choose your clothing well before your photoshoot arrives. Having your clothing organized will help create a smooth photoshoot. Have a plan for your hair and makeup as well. I recommend having your hair and makeup done professionally if possible! 

BE IN THE MOMENT

We want to capture authentic moments, movement and spontaneity! It’s okay to leave “Say Cheese” at home and embrace being in the moment with your family. I will capture the beautiful moments as they unfold. I will also come prepared with gentle prompts to help direct you in a more unposed, natural direction.

HAVE FUN

Plan to have fun with your family! Do you have an activity that you enjoy doing together? Why not bring it along or play during your session. Reading books, eating ice cream, picnics, sipping hot chocolate- the ideas are endless! When families are engaged in doing something that they love it provides the perfect opportunity to take authentic photographs.

TAKE EXTRA TIME, EAT & REST

Plan for extra time on the day of your photoshoot to get your family ready and be sure to arrive to the photoshoot on time. You also want to make sure everyone is fed and rested and ready to have some fun! If you have small children, bringing some snacks along as well can go along way in keeping kiddos happy campers.
