What To Expect

Expect that your photo session, if on location or studio set up, will be a relaxed and fun environment, where you can just be yourself!

Sessions are shot using natural light, so all our appointments are weather permitting at appropriate times of the day, generally around sundown.

The duration of each photo shoot is dependent on the type of shoot and amount of people per session, however sessions usually run anywhere from 60-120 minutes.

Dress in attire which best suits you and you are comfortable in; however, be sure not to wear bold patterns and prints which may take attention away from you or your child as the main focal point.  If you are shooting family portraits, be sure to choose a color palette that’s soft and complimentary to each other. White tops and jeans are always a good fall back if you are unsure of color choices.

We mainly shoot on location as we feel these photographs provide for the most natural and desired images. For newborns and younger children, we also provide a studio style set up option, but please be aware that these sessions are also shot using natural light, so the time of day and weather conditions still need to be taken into consideration.

Newborn sessions are best photographed within the first few days of life (7-14 days) since they are easiest to work with within this time period.  If you are looking for newborn photos, the sooner you can get them photographed after birth, the better. Please be aware that newborn sessions generally tend to take longer due to the nature of the session, so please be prepared for a minimum of a two (2) hour time frame. Also, bring anything you may need to comfort your infant during the session.

While we do provide some “props” for embellishing your images, we always try to keep our photographs as natural as possible. Of course, we always welcome anything you wish to bring to incorporate into your photo session which will make you feel comfortable and that you wish to have in your images to capture as a memory.

If there is a specific location of choice or desired image you would like, please feel free to discuss this with us prior to your session and we will be sure to accommodate your needs.
