Portrait FAQs

What Can I Expect from My Portrait Session?

  • We will meet at our chosen location at the time discussed, and get to work creating memories.

  • After your session, I will pull lightly edited images into a proof gallery for you to select the images that speak to you the most.

  • 2-3 weeks after I receive your selections, you will get a fully edited gallery of beautiful artwork that is yours to download, share and print!

What Should I Wear?

  • Keep clothing simple. Try to choose solid colors for your photo session.

  • Dress mom first, then build the rest of the family around her outfit. If mom is comfortable, everyone else will be too.

  • Remember that text on shirts may not be visible in the photos.

  • Make sure you coordinate your family's clothing from head to toe for any full-length pose. Yes, socks and shoes will show!

  • Darker clothing slims. Choose shades of black, brown, blue, dark green and other jewel-toned colors.

  • Scoops or v-necks flatter shorter necks and full faces. Turtlenecks or high-necked garments flatter longer necks and slender faces.

  • Keep clothing consistent, but not matchy-matchy. Dress everyone in the same style. Don't mix casual and formal clothing in photos.

Relax!

  • We will get beautiful images that capture your family as they are right now! Don't stress about perfect hair and perfect smiles. I promise, in 10 years you will want to capture your kids just like they are today.

  • I will work to have fun during the session!

Props and Backgrounds

  • Ask your photographer for advice. If you're not sure what you want in your photos, I can help you choose a background that suits your needs.

  • Feel free to go through my gallery to see what images you love. We can try to coordinate those same ideas into your portrait session.

  • Add in your personality. Bring your own props for a personal touch. Consider items such as baby blanket, stuffed animal, or a special toy.
