Life Is Beautiful
Welcome to your portrait session booking! I’m so excited to photograph you.
Let's Do This!
What is your process for directing/posing our session?
If your session is a guided 1-hour portrait session I will gently help you flow through a time of play, cuddles, and light posing. I rely on you and your loved ones to bring an open and willing attitude so keep things light, fun, and relaxed. If your session includes a child or baby, I follow their lead but also take time to get to know them and photograph them in a way that's authentically represents their personality and age. Being photographed may feel a little uncomfortable at first, but I promise, you're perfect and you'll do just fine.
What if my partner doesn't like being photographed?
Not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, that's normal. I can't advise you on how to handle your relationship but I think honestly expressing to them why these images are important to you will help immensely. I do have a policy requiring active participation from all session attendees and I ask that they leave their negativity at the door before beginning our session. In the words of my favourite TV coach - clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose - this is the energy I hope you'll all bring!
What should we wear?
Wear what feels like you! I recommend comfortable outfits, fabrics that move, and classic or neutral tones. Bright/bold colours tend to reflect light and can throw an off-coloured glow onto skin. Patterns are fine, but I would suggest avoiding really bold solid colours like oranges, bright reds, and corals. To keep things timeless, avoid logos and mega-trendy looks.
Are the times on your calendar set in stone?
This booking calendar isn't very flexible (unfortunately) and sunset during the summer months is quite late. Once you book your selected date I'll be in touch to recommend a better time in the evening if we want that glowy golden hour vibe.
