What do I wear to my session?
This is a hard question to answer without knowing your style and what clothes you own! If you have several outfits that you are trying to decide between, I highly recommend that you text or email me pictures of them so I can help you choose. But generally, try to avoid being too matchy (all khakis with white shirts), clothing that is too tight or too baggy, clothes with words or brands, and neon colors.
Here is a pinterest board to give you some ideas: WHAT TO WEAR
Also, simply google images “family photography” and check out what families are wearing in the photos that you like.
How are professional prints different than prints from consumer labs like Walgreen's or Costco?
My computer is calibrated to my professional print lab, so when I order prints I know that the colors and brightness will appear as they are supposed to. I cannot guarantee the color accuracy when you go to consumer print labs, and the quality is simply not as good. Here is a blog post on the topic: PROFESSIONAL LABS v. CONSUMER LABS
When are you available for sessions?
It really depends on the week. I do most of my sessions in the evenings (weekday or weekend) but I also take a limited number of sessions on weekdays during the day. I prefer to do indoor lifestyle sessions during the day and outdoor sessions shortly before sunset. I’m willing to work with you to pick a different time that works with your schedule, but please be aware that the lighting conditions may not be ideal.
Should I bring toys for my kids to play with in the photos?
Some clients like their outdoor photos to have a lifestyle feel (a child playing rather than posed). If you would like to do this I recommend keeping the toys hidden until after we’ve done a few posed shots, otherwise the toys will end up in every photo.
Do you have a studio?
I do not have a studio and do not do traditional studio work with a backdrop. I offer indoor lifestyle sessions or outdoor sessions. Indoor lifestyle sessions are done in your home. See an example of an indoor lifestyle session here: LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSION
