What to expect~ FUN.
Expect to have lots and lots of fun. Within minutes of arriving you will notice that i LOVE what i do. Every session is my favorite, and every subject my best! Trust me, we'll have fun! Once we’ve scheduled your session, and have decided on a location please arrive at that location promptly to assure your session runs smoothly. I love that golden hour at the end of the day, but it doesn't last forever, as the sun begins to set we say goodbye to that lovely light. I often schedule around that, so by being prompt it allows us the time we need.
What to bring~Bring everything!
No, seriously bring enough change of clothes, it’s better to realize you brought too much and not used them, then to have wished you had brought more. I love layers..scarves, hats, boots, etc. Bring hairbrush, extra jewelry. If you are coming with young children please bring plenty of toys to entertain them, snacks, diapers etc.. We may run over with the little ones. I do not EVER want to stress out a newborn or little one. I’ll take my time with them and if we need to “break” we will! Please bring a sense of humor and a good mood, and lots of patience. I’ll have plenty and I’ll need you too as well!
Clothing Choices ~
Your choice of clothing is very important for the photo shoot. Clothing can really make or break a photo shoot. It is important to remember to stay true to your style but also keep in mind what looks good on camera. We are creating art and clothing is a tool to make that art come to life. I recommend wearing clothing that is embellished or that has texture to it. This kind of clothing photographs very well and adds another element besides the subject. I also recommend color, lots of it. Try to stay away from small floral or pastel colors. White is fine in the studio but I don’t recommend it outside because it will compete with the subject. For families, try to coordinate outfits, not match. If Dad has on a blue, grey and white plaid shirt then, a solid blue on one of the children and perhaps a grey on the other. Think about it, plan ahead and please check out my Pinterest board, website or Facebook page for more inspiration…
Ordering Session ~
Once we have fully edited your images and are ready for you to view them, we will notify you that your gallery is ready. You will be given a password to a private gallery to share with friends and family and they will be free to place an order by simply emailing the studio the images and sizes they would like or giving you the information and you can bring it with you to your ordering session. Caitlin will contact you within a day or so of our activating your gallery to schedule a convenient time for you to come into the studio and assist you in placing your order. Your private Gallery will remain active for 21 days for your convenience. After 21 days it will be deleted. If for any reason after the gallery has been removed you request it to be put up online again, there is a $25.00 re-activation fee.
Your payment is due at the time of the session by check or cash.
