PICKING THE RIGHT LOCATION
Location is huge when it comes to your photos. Start thinking of your vision for your session. Are you picturing light, airy, beach photos? Or photos in a colorful, dramatic urban setting? Or a park with Trees that Canopy over your images. I can offer up plenty of suggestions for exact locations, just think about what type of spot you’re interested in & we’ll figure out the rest together!
Your outfit(s) is another really important aspect to your session. If you are booking a session with young children, outfit changes can be difficult. Consider bringing different hats, jackets, or accessories to mix up your child’s look without taking a ton of time or making them too upset. If you’re booking a family session with older children, outfit changes are optional & totally up to you. If you’re booking an engagement, headshot, or senior portrait session, outfit changes are encouraged! Here is my list of biggest wardrobe mistakes I see:
- Timeless vs outdated: If you are looking for a classic, timeless look, I can totally understand coordinating outfits! However, instead of getting the entire extended family in white shirts with bluejeans, consider having half the family wear that, and let the others play around with the theme a bit. Think white cotton dresses or toddlers in jean overalls or throw some denim jackets in the mix.
- Big logos, & other distracting subjects: Try and stay away from large logos and words across your cloths. Also big Sneakers can be a distraction.
