Information for Sessions

Information to make your session what you have in mind:

  • I love to hear your ideas about how you'd like your pictures to look. Whether it's inspiration from Pinterest or my photo gallery, I want to make your pictures, well, what you picture. We will talk on the phone so you can give me all the details of your vision.

  • Wardrobe is not provided. We will discuss your choices but some things to mostly avoid: neon colors, black and white clothing, writing or print on clothing, gym shoes, anything stiff or restrictive, and white socks.

  • When doing an outdoor session, it's the best light one hour before sunset. This is when I will want to book your session.

  • Bringing your personal props give your session a special touch. It could be picked flowers,  a favorite stuffed animal or toy or for maternity sessions an ultrasound picture of baby.
