The location of the shoot can add a whole lot of meaning and fun to your photos! The images will be focused on you, but a great background adds tons of color, texture and light! I am a traveling photographer and am willing to try out any location you prefer.
Gorgeous fields, greenery and trees areas. They work great for playing and focusing on each other. The best time of day for this are the “golden hours” (Before 10 am and after 6 pm).
Cool alleys, buildings and industrial areas. They have great color, texture and variety! We can shoot in urban spots pretty much any time of the day
Home is always a place that can create intimacy, comfort and ease to a shoot, especially when children are involved. Plus there is no where you need to go anywhere, I will bring the lighting to you!

It’s ok to bring bribes along for the shoot, I encourage it! A little treat that won’t stain the teeth or cause a mess on that beautiful outfit you picked out can help a shoot go by smoothly. Also an extra outfit in case of accidents and even their favorite toy can add a little comfort. Encourage your children to be themselves and have fun!

Probably the biggest challenge is what to wear. Wear what makes you feel comfortable, there will be less pulling, tugging and rearranging if you wear something that feels natural to you. Have a few back ups available in case of emergency (or you change your mind!) Don’t feel the need to be “matchy-matchy” there are no real rules here. Remember these portraits are about you, not your shoes!

I am going to do whatever I can to make you and your loved ones feel comfortable. If we need to take breaks or rearrange things do not hesitate to let me know! I am going to make sure I take as many “must have” shots and poses in the beginning and then towards the end let everyone have a little fun to capture some natural shots of your family just being awesome with one another.

I will arrive at 15 min early to take a few test shots of the area and determine the lighting and best spots for shots. We will begin at the EXACT START TIME so as to ensure full advantage is taken of your shoot. Please make sure that you are prepared and ready to begin!
