Frequently Asked Questions
What should we wear?
When picking out clothing for the family to wear aim for neutral colors and avoid bold patterns, textures or logos. You don’t want to look ‘matching’ as such, but a cohesive scheme helps to bring the focus of the portrait onto your family and not simply their clothes. For the ladies your own conservative style of makeup and a quick trip to the hair salon is the best way to achieve an elegant and timeless look.
When is the best time to book a family session?
Today! The longer you wait to organize your portrait session, the more likely you are to put it on the back burner until it is too late. With the kids growing up so fast and life taking unexpected turns, you don’t want to be regretting your decision to delay. As for the actual portrait time itself, I usually shoot 2 hours prior to sunset, to get the most flattering lighting situations.
How can I make sure everyone is ready for the portrait?
Parents often worry about getting their children ready for the portrait, but it’s actually quite simple. Make sure the kids have had plenty to eat and are feeling calm and settled, and bring along any toys or comforting blankets for the little ones. Older children should be able to understand the situation. The most important thing to remember is to have fun and loosen up, this helps to create a happy and relaxed atmosphere, so that I can capture your family having fun and truly being themselves.
When do I see my images?
After the photo shoot, I will be in touch to schedule your viewing and ordering session. I will provide a customized slideshow and samples of the beautiful products I offer. This ordering session will be the time for you to pick out your favorites and order your prints and digitals.
