Portrait photography is at the core of our business. It’s our joy when we can help you feel beautiful and genuinely photographed. When our clients tell us, “ you captured who my son really is, the photos make his personality shine”, it confirms that we have done a great job.
Our portrait work is designed for any season of your life. We work with young children, professionals who need headshots, small or large families, and high school seniors. If you are in search of a unique type of photography session not mentioned please contact us to begin the conversation about how we can work together.
Everyone is unique and it’s our promise to help you tell your story through images from our time together. A few favorite features that our clients love by working with us is the personal print release and digital negatives included in your package ensuring that you can enjoy your images for a lifetime. We look forward to connecting with you and planning your session soon.
What to Wear
Your session is scheduled, we found the perfect place, but now . . . what to wear to your photo shoot? This isn’t as daunting as you may think. With some easy tips you can transform your outfits and be photo ready!
It’s fun to shop and find new outfits, but you may have what you need already hanging in your closet. I love to create new outfits by mixing up my wardrobe, adding different accessories, or layering for warmth or fun color combos. If you use some creativity, you’ll discover many options that will save you money and be fun to put together! I would love to help you pick outfits and coordinate your family. You are more than welcome to text or email me photos before your photo session or bring additional outfits and accessories with you if you just can’t decide.
You are special and beautiful. Your family has wonderful aspects that make it unique. That’s the beauty of photography‐‐bringing out the special personality of your family. Sometimes finding the balance between casual and fancy can be a challenge in photos. The vibe you want your photos to convey is totally up to you. For engagement sessions and couples, a mix of casual and more fancy is fun and gives you more photo options.
Be safe and stylish.
No high heels! Shooting outside leads us into beautiful places, but sometimes uneven ground, so wearing comfortable, sensible shoes for ladies and gentlemen is very important. Leave your Sunday best at home. Flat shoes are sturdier than heels. I have had clients sink into the ground in their high heels‐‐yikes!
Be comfortable and modest.
To ensure your personality shines through it’s important that the outfit you choose is comfortable and you can move in it. Wearing a cute mini skirt or high wedge sandals may not be the best option because of lack of mobility. Especially with children, layering to ensure modesty and comfort will help your photo shoot go smoothly. Belts that keep pants in place are also a simple way to help your child be more comfortable with family sessions that have lots of action and movement.
Color is our friend. Here is where my professional and personal opinion is strongest when it comes to outfits: Please do not put your whole family in white shirts and jeans. Yes, everyone has a white shirt, but no one looks their best in white (except for brides)! If there is a challenge incorporating color into your group session with your available wardrobe, try adding accessories to brighten up your color pallet and add interest. For example, add a fun scarf for Mom, a colorful hair bow on a child, or a colorful necklace for grandma. Brighter tones of color can make a big difference and bring out your family’s beauty.
