It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.

What Should I Wear And What Should My Family Wear?

Most importantly when deciding on outfits is to pick something that you feel comfortable in.  It's also easy if you start with one outfit and plan around that.  In general, bold, solid colors are best and when pairing with other family members in the photo, and it's best to keep the colors complimentary.  Patterns are fun too, so play around!  Ladies, you can have fun with accent pieces such as necklaces or scarves!  Men can opt for a fun accent piece too such as a casual tie, hat or scarf.  You can play it up or down any way you want. 

Pinterest is also a great source of Pin/In-spiration!  I have created a Pinterest Board with some of my favorite color combinations and inspirational wardrobe ensembles.  Check out my What-To-Wear Board for additional ideas!

 

How Do WE DECIDE ON A LOCATION?

When we're deciding on a location, think about places you and your family LOVE and have the most fun.  This could be a favorite park, walking trail, nature preserve, more urban setting or even your own backyard.  We have plenty of other recommendations depending on the style you'd like.  Wherever it is, we'll make sure to have fun!

 

What Happens If It Rains?

On overcast days, I would encourage you to keep a session even though the sky might not be perfectly blue.  Sometimes, we get the brightest eyes on these days (and nobody is squinting)!  If the forecast is calling for gloomy skies and rain, I will contact you the day before to go over rescheduling options.  There are no fees associated with rescheduling due to inclement weather.

 

How Much DOES a Session Cost?

Session fees are $200.  This fee covers the photographer's time and talent for the consultation, pre-planning, the shoot, post processing and reveal/ordering session.  Because we cater to each client individually and each client's needs are unique, all products are sold separately so that they can be fully customized.  Collections are available and offer the best value and A La Carte products may be purchased in addition to the collections or separately.  Cash, Check, MasterCard and Visa are accepted forms of payment.

 

What SHOULD WE EXPECT AFTER THE SESSION?

Approximately two weeks after your session you'll have your session reveal and ordering appointment where you'll get to see all of your images for the first time.  During that appointment we'll work to create amazing products to showcase your entire session.  From wall art to prints, albums and custom design work, we offer a full range of products to customize and meet your needs.  We also have a generous amount of studio samples, so prepare to be amazed!

 

HOW LONG WILL YOU KEEP MY FILES?

Files are held for 60 days after your session date.
