what to wear?
Color! I love to see my clients style. The biggest suggestion I can give you (without searching through your closet myself) is coordinate, not necessarily match. Work with 2 or 3 colors that you love–I love jewel tone colors (purples, blues, greens, reds). Here are a few ideas to incorporate:
– jeans; my favorite thing for everyone
– layering pieces like vests & sweaters
– mix & match plaids/ prints/ colors of the same color family
– colored pants and fun shoes or boots
– coordinating prints in complimentary colors
– bold colored clothing & accessories (scarves, hats, bling of all sorts)
 
what to expect?
All portraits sessions are shot on location with a documentary style.
So, gone are the days of the stuffy, unnatural poses in matching khaki outfits.  Lets spend some time somewhere fun or beautiful, in the comfort of your home or any place where I can capture your family in the most genuine way.
Included with each session is a beautiful online sharing/downloading gallery with high res. images.
 
how can I see my proofs?
I upload all proofs to an online gallery. After I upload the proofs, I will send you an email with a private link to your proofs.   From there, you can view them on your computer, tablet or smartphone from the comfort of your home.  You may download your images directly to your computer and print them freely at your print shop of choice or you may order professional prints directly from your private gallery. I can only guarantee images printed directly from my gallery because they will look exactly as they were intended to look.
 
what is the best time of day for photos?
I prefer to take photos either early in the morning (before 10-10:30am) or else in the evening, during the last 2-3 hours of daylight.  This allows for the best “golden hour” lighting and guarantees no harsh shadows on faces or people squinting into the sun. 
 
do you have a studio?
I wish! I do shoot young children & babies in my home & would love to have my own studio space in the future.  For now, most of my work is outside, on location. I am willing to come to your home for a family/lifestyle session or newborn session.  In fact, I love doing in-home sessions!  My only requirements are a clean, clear photo area with good, natural light from windows. I will occasionally do baby sessions in my own home & I do many orchard/ outdoor sessions at my house.
