Thank you for booking a family portrait session with me! I cannot wait to meet your family and help you tell your story through vivid, artistic images.
I understand that family portraits are an investment for you and I want to capture photos that you will cherish for years to come AND have fun during the process! It can be a lot of work to get your children ready for a photo shoot, so hopefully this guide will give you some ideas and direction!
Many clients ask me questions about wardrobe. If you look on Pinterest you will find GOBS of posts on this subject. Every photographer's advice varies. I have gathered a few visuals for you if it helps! You can see and follow my Pinterest board here!
The days of "everyone wear jeans and white t-shirts" are in the past. My suggestion for choosing clothing is to find items that coordinate. It doesn't matter whose outfit is chosen first (I usually choose mine ;)) as long as you choose clothing that makes you feel comfortable and confident.
Choose a color scheme that you like- these portraits will be hanging on your walls! Dress according to the season, and let the season inspire your color scheme. Don't be afraid to add a pop of color to your palette!
Incorporating layers and textures can help add interest to your clothing. Accessories such as a scarf, belt, jacket, or jewelry will add another fun element to your photos. Remember that you will have some full-length photos taken, so plan shoes and socks accordingly.
Stay away from logos, flourescent colors (they reflect onto your skin), graphics and busy patterns. These may cause distraction in your photos, and I like the focus to be on you and your family!
Mom, you are going to look and feel amazing if you take a little time for yourself before your session. You should feel comfortable, confident and beautiful for your session! If you are considering having professional make-up done, I would be happy to give you a referral.
Within two weeks of your session, you will receive an email with a link to your personal online gallery. From your gallery you will be able to share your favorite photos on social media, and your login information with family and friends. You will be download high and low resolution images as well as place orders for prints.
I'm looking forward to our session! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!
let's tell your story together
