I’m so honoured to help You create memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime. I’ve created this Welcome Guide to help answer some basic questions and break down a few photography definitions so you are not left wondering what you are getting out of this experience.
By the time you’ve read through this Welcome Guide, you’ll have your initial question answered and I hope you will feel more than ready to book a session. Then I’ll take care of the rest!
Your only job is to be yourself and laugh a lot in order to create photos that you’ll love forever.
I can’t wait to get you in front of my camera!
The style of your clothing, the colours and the textures can impact the overall feel and vibe of your photo session!
If you’re investing in family or childhood photos then it is very important to spend a little additional time on coordinating outfits, to ensure your photos are timeless and polished!
In this Welcome Guide I have put together some style tips that I hope will be helpful to you, as you start to think about styling your child and/or family for your next photo session.
As always, I am available via email, text or phone should you have any questions about outfit or overall styling of your session. Feel free to even send a photos if you like and I’d be more than glad to give you some opinion/ideas!!
Styling Tips & Ideas!
Firstly, make sure you are comfortable in the clothing that you choose because we will be moving around a lot and cuddling with your loved ones. I generally suggest that mom picks something that she loves first and then coordinate everyone else around her. I always want mom to feel beautiful!
That’s why I offer a studio wardrobe full of beautiful gowns ready to use:)
Mix and match fun colours and patterns, don’t feel like everyone has to look the same or be matchy-matchy. I personally love solid colours and clothing with textures!
Flower crowns, necklaces, scarves, hats, jewellery & suspenders make great natural props. Sweeping dresses and clothing with movement plays up the mood and are always beautiful and fun!
Graphics or large logos on clothing dates photos and distract.
Neon colours throw crazy color cast on skin and typically do not photograph well.
The most important, remember that shoes shows on photos and can make images feel unpolished.
I love bare feet in the summer for kiddos also!
Earth tones and rich colours tend to lend themselves well. Boys going shirtless for outdoor summer sessions can help play up a carefree playful mood.
Get kiddos excited by letting them help choose a special accessory to wear. If they have something near and dear to them let them bring it along to help tell a story!
