I'm not good at posing, is that ok?
You are required only to show up; I do the rest! I have photographed people that are amazing at posing and others that have no idea where to put their hands. I have studied the art of posing and flattering all body types and shapes. No need to worry about practicing in the mirror…although it is fun! I make it super easy for you. I even pose with you to show you exactly what I want you to do. I never make you do anything you aren’t comfortable doing but do encourage you to go a little out of your comfort zone and try something new.
Where Will We Shoot? Can I Choose the Location?
Your shoot location depends on your personality, style, and preference. I am totally open to location suggestions, but must scout them out first to be sure they offer gorgeous backdrops and the perfect lighting. Sometimes, places that look pretty on the surface are not exactly ideal for shooting. I have a few favorite spots for both natural and urban settings.
How long before I get to see my photos?
Your proofs are ready to view about 10 days after your session. You will be invited back to the studio for a personalized viewing appointment where you get to see your photos and choose your favorites for your products. Orders are placed at this appointment.
What if it rains?
On location shoots do mean that we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and bad weather is a possibility. I try and make the decision to reschedule the day before the session, but depending on you, sometimes we wait longer to see if the weather changes. I work in reschedule days into my calendar, so we can usually get the session done within a few days.
How far in advance should I book?
The short answer is however long you’d like! I’ve been known to book Spring dates in the Fall, but as a good rule of thumb, 3-4 weeks works well. This gives you time for planning, purchasing any items you may need, and making sure you can ask off for work/school if necessary.
What days and times can I book my session?
I book on weekday afternoons and evenings, depending on the time of year. As we get later into Fall, our start times may begin before the school day is over, so please plan accordingly. I do not schedule sessions on weekends as those are important for me to spend with family 🙂
Will I be able to post my photos on social?
Absolutely! I love posing behind the scenes on my Insta Stories and tag you so that you can share. When you come in for your viewing session, you get to choose 6 of your favorite images that are social media ready so you can post to Instagram and mom can share on Facebook.
