What to Expect


The Fun Stuff {Preparing for your Shoot}

What to Wear:

Easier to say what NOT to wear.  Don’t have everyone wear jeans, and white tops.
Hopefully you know that, I will assume you do. It’s better to dress individuals than to try and match.  It’s best to wear layers.  So instead of wearing a favorite shirt and jeans, add layers, by adding a sweater or summer scarf, or opting for leggings and a skirt instead of jeans.  For men, button up shirts, with something underneath, or light tees, and light jackets.  Please don’t dress your kids in petti skirts unless that is something they wear every day.  You want your photos to be relevant, but also in style 5 years from now. Try to steer clear of chevron, bright {warm} colors, such as hot pink, bright orange, and neons. For inspiration, visit or or and see OUTFIT inspiration.   Make sure to check out the WHAT TO WEAR icon the the left.

Accessorizing is KEY. 

What to Bring:
Kids UNDER age 5, bribes.
Candy, bubbles, anything that you could pull out in case of a meltdown.
A favorite quilt/blanket, in case you need to sit, and the ground is damp or rough
Lip gloss / Lip Stick, a hair tie, in case of wind {please don’t wear on your wrist}

What NOT to Bring:
Gum!  No gum!

SICK KIDS. Please, do not bring sick children. One of my rules is no sick folks, if I am sick, I will absolutely reschedule.  A shoot is not worth me infecting you or your family, and please also be courteous to mine.  If your child has had a fever or vomiting in the past 24 hours, let’s reschedule.  Sick babies are in need of cuddles and rest, not photos.

Please arrive on time for your photo-shoot.
Session time starts at scheduled appointment time, not from client arrival time.

Appointments {if the need arises} must be canceled no later than 7 days prior to shoot to apply deposit towards future shoot. Deposits expire 90 days after they are received.
This does not apply to ill family members, PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP*

We will not re-shoot due to irritability of children.  I promise I will work hard for laughs and giggles and funny faces to make for great images.  The pressure of a photo-shoot can be a lot on a child when they feel the heat from mom and dad, so the best way to avoid this is to just relax, and love your children throughout your shoot.  The good images will flow*
