Client Experience Guide

I am so excited to serve you in your photography needs!

 

My goal as your photographer is not to make or photoshop you to  look  beautiful or a certain way but to show you the beauty you already have. 

 

In this Client Experience Guide you’ll find everything you’ll need to know about a session with me.

 

I’ve included some helpful tips to hopefully make this process as smooth as possible for you. If you have any questions please ask!

If you haven't already please fill out my client questionnaire:

What To Expect

BEFORE

About a week before your session, I will send you an email with directions for how to get to your session location and where we will meet. You’ll also receive a reminder to make your final payment. If you have any questions leading up to your session, feel free to reach out!

 

DURING

During our time together, you can expect my sense of humor, I will say something silly (or funny noises for kids) to make you laugh as I snap photos! I will pose you and tell you what to do with your hands, so you won’t have to worry about any of that. I take LOTS of photos to make sure I get the great shots we need, so you’ll hear my shutter snapping pretty rapidly. I also love to capture candid moments in between!

 

AFTER

You can expect your photos to be sent to you in an online gallery via email about 2-3 weeks after your session! You’ll be able to download your high-resolution images straight from your gallery and begin sharing your beautiful images with friends and family!

What to wear 

For the Family:

Dress it up! This session is an investment and definitely something to dress up for! Dressy photos stand out and make you feel extra special.

Coordinating Colors! Instead of coordinating with everyone wearing exactly the same thing, pick 1 or 2 colors that compliment each other, include different prints and shades. This looks way more polished!

For Her:

Movement! Flowy dresses and skirts look most stunning for two reasons.

1) they bring movement to the shot.

2) they fit and flatter the female body best.

Consider materials and they how much it moves and how it lays on the ground or steps. Take a peek at my Client Closet! Available for sessions that are 1 hour or more.

 Less is more when it comes to jewelry, choose 1 or two statement pieces over lots of distractions. Use the excuse to get your nails done. There are few things I love more than an excuse to get a mani/pedi!

Things to avoid: If possible please cut the hang loops and tags from tops and dresses. SPF in makeup. SPF works by reflecting light. This can sometimes make you look shiny/oily in photos

For Him:

Colors: Many of my guys love to mix a coat, blazer, or button up with a different pant color or shade. It adds some extra visual interest and helps to break up the color tones. If you stuck on what to wear all guys look great in blue!

What to Bring

BRIBES!

Whether its for your kids or pets, treats make any one smile, even if its for a few shots! It doesn't have to be candy, sometimes bubbles work just as good!

Extra Outfits

This is for those little ones that may have unpreventable accidents that happen in the car on the over or during the shoot. Life happens and thats okay!
