WHO ARE PORTRAIT SESSIONS FOR?
Pretty much anyone. If you have a face, it's for you.
Couples, engagements, maternity, small families, lifestyle shoots in your home, and all my lovely individuals who are artists of any kind or want to document life with some "just because" photos.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Once booked, I'll ask you to send me some of your favorite songs. Ones that mean something to you, ones that make you dance, once that make you feel. I'll create a playlist and have that playing during our shoot. I've found that cancels out the awkward silence that typically comes. It helps loosen you up and get comfortable. It provokes some sweet moments, laughing, and movement which equals better photos! And also, who doesn't love music? I know I get more in my creative groove with it going!
I'm not a huge fan of posing. I believe in directing and letting you guys move organically and capturing what happens. I'll put you in some poses and then give you directions to move. I'll allow you guys the freedom to play out ideas you have and you may find times where I'm silent.
This is the one warning I'm giving you: I love joking around. I make lame jokes and say awkward things. I'm very chill and believe in having fun, so that's usually how my sessions go!
I try set up outside sessions in the afternoon, anywhere from 1-2 hours before sunset and indoor shoots typically around noon, depending on the window light in your home. Typically these shoots are done on a weekday, but there is the occasional wedding-free Saturday available for shoots.
