So you booked your session. Now what?



I am excited to capture you and your loved ones. Custom photography is unique because it not only  captures what you look like at a certain point in time, it captures who you are. I aim to capture  honest photos of your family and children. The goal is to capture the true essence of your family and to have fun! Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your session with me. 

Family session at Morven Park

Location:​ Together, we will decide on the best location for your photos. We can shoot in your home  as long as your home has adequate natural light. Many clients prefer their home because of the  intimate and personal feel it provides. I have many locations that I love to shoot at regularly but I am  always open to new locations as well. You should choose a location that fits your style and  personality. I can help you along with this decision.

Time:​ If we are shooting in your home, I prefer late morning, because that is when homes are  usually lit up the best. If we are shooting outdoors we will shoot either in the morning or in the  evening. The light is typically too harsh mid day. If your children are up for it, shooting one to two  hours before sunset provides gorgeous light and atmosphere. The images in my portfolio look the  way they do largely because of my use of light and the time of day your session takes place has a  huge impact. Many families tell me that they simply have the kids take a late nap or have some  down time prior to their evening session.

Length Of Session: ​The good news is, I am super fast! My family portrait sessions rarely last more  than an hour. Don't worry, I can easily get a diverse and adequate gallery in that time.

What To Wear:​ Wardrobe should be comfortable and reflect who you are. I do not recommend  matching but rather coordinating. I am happy to consult you directly on wardrobe or  recommend a personal stylist if you are interested. Just let me know.
