First of all, don't stress. I know that that is easier said than done, but it is so true. If you are getting anxious about your session, it will show in your photographs. So relax and let me walk you through the experience.
Make sure that you are well hydrated and have eaten a light meal prior to getting to the session. Women, wear outfits that are not too busy, avoid chevron patterns. Vibrant and deep colors always work best in pictures. Try to avoid wearing all white, as it will usually make you look paler. Women, make sure to wear make-up, it doesn't have to be heavy make-up, as it really helps with the shine!
Men, remember that this is important to your other half! Nothing is more appealing to a woman than a man that willing gets his picture taken. It is definitely worth some brownie points later on. Smile and relax, I promise to make this experience as painless as possible.
If you are bringing children to the session, bring them a snack. Try to avoid things that make a huge mess so that you can preserve their clothes. Bring an extra change of clothes for younger children. Bring three times as many diapers as you think that you will need, children like to go extra just when you least expect it. Most importantly, remember that my studio runs on Kid Time, and that I will give your child the time that they need to relax and feel comfortable with me. Some kids take longer to make this adjustment than others.
I am excited to be part of this amazing experience with you! Please let me know how I can serve you better.
