THE BASICS

SIT BACK & RELAX

During the session please sit back and relax.  It’s often a natural
instict to want to coerce your child into smiling by aking him/her to
“say cheese” or by doing something silly.  I pride myself on engaging
with your kids in a way that elicits a natural and emotive response.  
It tends to work best if parents stay back (so long as you & your
child are comfortable) to allow me to work one-on-one with the subject.

SPECIAL TREATS

If you have young children, I encourage you not to bribe your child or promise special treats prior to the session.  In my experience children can be so focused on earning a treat they want to rush through the session to earn said prize.

With your permission I would like to offer your child a special surprise as we near the end of the session (and then if you have one as well, we can offer that too). This usually works wonders for me in capturing additional frames we may have otherwise missed. Kids are typically intrigued by a new promise of a reward.  I have a variety of treats available (stickers, and sweet treats).  If you would prefer your child not have an edible treat, or if your child has any food allergies, please let me know and I can plan accordingly.

CLOTHING

 

TIPS FOR SELECTING OUTFITS FOR YOUR SESSION

A common question among clients is what they should wear
to their portrait session.  Clothing choices are an intregal
part of the final prints, so for that reason I’m outlining
a few things to consider when selecting outfits.

COORDINATE COLORS

Coordinating colors tend to photograph better than outfits
that are perfectly matched.  Consider selecting a palette of
3-4 coordinating colors and select outfits within the palette
for each family member. 
One of those colors could be aPOP of color in one or two places!

LAYERING

Layering vests, jackets, and scarves is an easy and natural
way to give depth and texture to your final images.  While
it’s fun to play with accessories, try not to overdo it or they
may end up distracting from the subject(s).

BE YOU

My goal is to capture authentic images of your children
and/or your family. Select clothes that reflect your personal
style and taste rather than forcing yourselves into something
trendy or outside of your comfort zone. If you plan to hang
these images in your home, think of the color palette that will
compliment your decor!
