A few things to consider:
My sessions will be at a location of your choice – any outdoor location where there is a lot of natural light. I prefer to shoot early in the morning or late afternoon when the light is best. Newborn sessions will be held indoors at your home.
New ideas make me happy – so please feel free to share any photo ideas, new locations or thoughts you have for me at any time!
Your session will be very relaxed and laid back – I want to capture you and your family enjoying each other, having fun and living life. My goal is to take a lot of fun, creative, candid moments and to capture your family’s personality!
Clothing choice is a very important part of your pictures. I would be more then happy to help you decide what to wear. I know from personal experience that this can be a stressful decision – let me help you! The key is to coordinate and not match. Some of my favorite stores to purchase clothes for photo sessions are Gap, Old Navy, Target, Anthropologie, and JCrew. Bright fun colors always make for beautiful fun filled pictures!
Trendy looks are great too and can be a lot of fun. Please feel free to bring multiple clothing changes; I will be more than willing to help you pick and choose different ideas.
Some fun things are – funky shoes, matching shoes, knit hats, cowboy boots, sunglasses, favorite toys etc.
Newborns photograph best in the first 5-8 days of life – so reserving your newborn session with your due date is strongly advised. This is a must for those cute little curled up sleeping newborn photographs.
Some of the best newborn shots are in the baby’s natural state – naked. I also like to do photos in a diaper, plain onesie, with special blankets etc. I will bring some of my favorite knit hats, textured blankets and pillows – but feel free to supply anything you think will be great for the shoot or is special to you.
Within a week to a week and a half after your session you will be able to view a sneak peek of a few of your photos on my blog.
Within 4 weeks of your sneak peek you will have the ability to view all of your photos online in a personal password protected gallery – which will give you the ability to share your photos online with family and friends.
The same night you receive the link to your online gallery you will receive an email with a link to download all of your photos to your computer. They are yours to keep, print, email, post on facebook, use for announcements or anything else you desire as all of the high resolution images from your session are yours to keep forever!
Referrals are the best form of compliment – if you enjoyed your photo session and photos please feel free to pass my information on to your family and friends and please have them mention you when they contact me (there might be a little something in it for you!)
