Where do we start?
Your session should be a reflection of your family. Before our session I’ll send you a questionnaire so we can discuss your expectations, ideas, and goals for our session. Preparation and communication are the keys to a successful session, so make sure to share all your ideas and concerns with me during our consultation or on your questionnaire!
What about location?
Finding the perfect location is an important part of planning for the photo shoot. I have my favorite places, and usually make a recommendation based on your personality and style, but I always welcome your location ideas. I’d love to know if there is a place that is sentimental to your family so we can discuss our options and plan the best location to suit your family.
What do I ware?
Colours are in!!! This photo shoot is meant to capture your family, including individuality and style. Think coordinating, not matching. Incorporate colors and patterns that fit well together. Don’t be afraid of colour! Choose a few neutral colors, and then add a few bright accents to your outfits. Accessories such as scarves, necklaces, and clothing layers are great for this.
How do I prepare my kids for a photoshoot?
Get your kids excited for the session and let them know how much fun it will be, but no need to over prepare them or add too much pressure for "best behaviour". Kids pick up on your stress, so stay cool, even when they don’t. My goal is to capture their true expressions, and keeping it light and fun is essential to that. My best behaved children (and adults for that matter) are usually those that are well fed before our session. Feel free to bring treats to reward good behaviour during our session!
