FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS A PHOTO SHOOT LIKE?

Every photo shoot is just a little different, depending on the location, type of shoot, number of people, etc. But in general, you will receive all the information for your shoot via email. This includes the date, time we are meeting,  and any other specific information you need. Each photo shoot is about two hours where we will be taking many different  pictures in different poses at the location. You are welcome to bring outfit changes – seniors usually bring about three outfits per session.  Before we start, we’ll chat about specific pictures wanted, posing, feeling confident in front of the camera, etc.Throughout the session, we’ll chit chat, laugh, goof around, and mostly have a great time while getting some fabulous photos. After your shoot, it takes about three weeks to edit your photos and get them posted to your online gallery where you can order photos and share with family and friends.

HOW DO I PICK A LOCATION?

Location is one of the most important things to choose for your photo shoot; it really enhances your personality and atmosphere of the shoot. So it’s important to think about what you like: nature, urban, rustic, casual, grunge?  We will talk about what you are most interested in and what’s best for your shoot. Of course, I am always open to new and unique places, and am happy to work with specific location requests.

WHAT DO I WEAR?

Avoid wearing white; it will wash you out in the photos. Avoid solid black, it casts dark shadows in already dark areas, like around the eyes. Some black, or black with color (big jewelry or a scarf) is fine. Avoid neon as it casts odd color reflections on your skin and other people in the photos. Suggestion: Mix and match families in different textures and patterns; all jeans and solid color shirts takes away from everyone’s personalities.  Wear something that you feel completely comfortable and confident in. If you can look in the mirror and say, “Man, I look good!” Then wear that!
