These sessions can take place anywhere special to you or in my home studio depending on your needs. There are no rules! I work with my clients to choose a location (indoors or out) that fits what you envision.
I will walk you through fun prompts and some posing to get a dynamic variety of images for you to choose from. We will walk through both playful and serious, more posed shots.
I am always enthusiastically open to any creative ideas (unique theme, location, props, etc) that will make the photos feel authentically you. I am always up for an adventure session as well, these can be fun with a more dramatic outfit and we can hike to a beautiful location and send some more time getting those epic photos.
An outfit change is welcome but keep in mind a lot of the locations outdoors won't have easy access to a changing room so bring something you can change into easily. I am a big fan of outdoor outfit changes as long as you are! Even just switched up accessories or jacket can be a nice idea for variety.
Decide what feel you'd like for your portrait photo gallery. Do you want these to be casual? Do you want an excuse to buy a new beautiful gown (yes please)?! Once you have a vision you can decide on an outfit and a possible 2nd outfit to change into half way through the session.
Things to avoid:
Other than that just wear what you feel great in! Checking out Pinterest can be a fun way to get inspiration. I am a fan of bold but not too bright colors, but mostly I am a fan of you feeling your best. If you feel good you can't go wrong!
Neon colors (these don't read well)
Stripes that are too close together (they create a strange effect)
An outfit/accessory change if you want
A favorite Blanket
Any special props that feel like you (guitar, bouquet, champagne, bike, boat, compostable glitter, colored smoke bomb, whatever)! Just give me a heads up on props so I can plan (:
