FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


INITIAL CONSULTATION

 Your initial consultation is a very important step in our process. It allows us to get to know you and understand exactly what you are looking for. The initial consultation can be done in person or over the phone and takes about 20 to 30 minutes. We will ask you questions to determine your style so we can create a session that is customized specifically to YOU!



WHAT TO WEAR

We are often asked for suggestions on what to wear on a photo shoot. This decision can be just as challenging as finding your photographer. These are photos that you are going to cherish for years to come. It can seem daunting when considering what to wear but it doesn't have to be. We are here to guide you every step of the way and have recommendations on what photographs best.

 

FAMILIES: First and foremost, it is important to be comfortable. A family photo shoot should be relaxing and fun. Wearing cloths that make you feel comfortable will help to achieve that, however there are some do's (and don'ts) that will improve the look of your images.

 

1. DO ... Select a color scheme

Gone are the days of everyone wearing khaki pants and a white shirt (unless of corse you have a burning desire to revisit the 90's).  If you have one central piece that you love, it helps to plan everything around that. Coordinate colors that compliment every outfit with colors that work well together. 

 

2. DO ... Use coordinated colors, patterns and layers (did we mention coordinated?)

Colors bring your photos to life, adding vibrance and interest. It is important to make sure that your colors coordinate and compliment each other, and are not too matchy-matchy. When selecting patterns, consider smaller ones that won't distract from the focal point, and try not to wear competing patterns. You wan't the main subject of your images to be YOU, not your clothing. Also, avoid large logos and graphics. These will also distract the eye away from the subject. You are the star of the show. We want to make sure your images show that. 

 

3. DO ... Consider where you will put your portraits 

Do you have a place in your home where you like to display your favorite images? Not everyone considers this, but after your session, you may decide to order some canvas wraps or metal wall art that you want to hang. If this is the case, think about your room colors to ensure that your images look stunning and work with your decor.
