Want to have an amazing session? See my tips below.
1-Participate happily. Relax, be yourself and have fun. If you are stressed out, it will show.
2-All kids are crazy, including mine. Trust me, it isn't anything I haven't seen before.
3-Choose your outfits carefully. Don't put everyone in the same color shirt. Avoid shirts with words printed on them and clothes that are uncomfortable or need constant adjusting. Coordination is good, but try not to be too matchy, matchy. Make sure that clothes are appropriate for the occasion.
4-Clothes should also be clean and pressed. If you can see those spots or wrinkles, so can my camera.
5-Make-up should be age appropriate and flattering. Grooming is equally important, so tweeze those eyebrows, trim that nose and ear hair and anything else you don't want me (or anyone else) to see. Beard grooming is equally important. Faces, including noses, and teeth should be clean.
6-Be well rested and well fed. Please communicate with me about the best time of day for you and/or your family so that everyone is at their best. While there are some times of days that are better than others, we can find an option that works for you.
7-Be sure to leave plenty of time to get ready. Moms and brides this means you! Trust me on this one, you don't want show up looking and feeling like a hot mess.
8-Your session will turn out better if you let me lead. I know this is important to you. It is important to me too. Things will go a lot smoother if you don't try to micromanage your session. I've worked hard to get to where I am so please trust me and we'll work together to create something great.
9-Tell me what you want. Yeah, I know I said let me be in charge. I still want your images to capture the essence of who you are. So tell me about yourself, let me know what your goals are for your session and what your personal style is. Do you want it to be playful, serious, casual or formal? Have a shot your just dying to try or a family tradition? Let me know and we'll work it in. This can be accomplished by filling out the session questionnaire and returning it to me before your session.
10-Feed back and referrals are important to me. Please let me know what you think. If you are happy please refer your friends. You'll both receive a 10% discount on your next session.
