Some of the questions I get asked are...
What should I wear? Can I bring more than one outfit to change into? Do I need to bring anything? Can more than one person be in the photo? Can I bring my pet? Can I do a standalone shot of my pet? Will you come to my home?
Well, I reserved this page to answer these types of questions.
First of all: Yes, I will photograph more than one person in a photo shoot.
Yes, I will photograph your pet in a picture with you.
Yes, I will photograph your pet all by itself.
Yes, I will go to your home or a specific location.
Yes, you may bring more than one outfit to wear.
and Yes, I can help you decide what to wear!
* I love photographing couples, families and more. What is better than one, but two, three or more people to be included in the picture? These are your memories, your story.
* No matter what size, I will gladly include your pet. As you can see in my photos, I am an animal lover. I have photographed dogs, cats, goats, horses and even cows! I will even come to your home if you have a large animal that you can't transport.
* I will go to your home, but location can be a fun and appealing element in your photo shoot. How about a beautiful waterfall? Or how about that favorite grove of Fall trees? Or that really cool rundown place that has neat textures and character? I am up for the challenge and enjoy experiencing various kinds of scenery. I do studio too, if that is your cup of tea.
* Props? Bring them! I love to include that special item in your shoot.
So let's talk about clothes:
*Ask yourself, "What kind of look am I going for?"
Family-all dressed in one color or mix it up with bolds or pastels colored palette
Senior-favorite outfits, memorabilia style clothes from school-eg. cheering uniform, football uniform, varsity coats, etc.
Infant-first outfit, favorite outfits, or choose something I have here at my studio.
Children-favorite outfits, costumes, or something I have here at my studio.
Fantasy-favorite costumes, or something I have here at my studio.
Glamour-favorite outfits, or something I have here at my studio.
*I suggest wearing solid colors. When you have a busy background you don't want to wear a busy print. But layers are great with solid color for one layer and then a print for next layer.
*For outdoor shoots I suggest wearing earthy colors such as greens, browns, blues, yellows, reds, etc.
*For indoor and some outdoor shoots, wearing busy prints is easier to do with solid backgrounds and backdrops.
*Long sleeves are better than short sleeves.
*And most importantly, come with pressed clothes.
* Have a question that isn't answered here? Please don't hesitate to ask. I love to talk photography! *
