FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
The days of solid white shirts and jeans have passed. These days so many of us are wanting a more styled, current family portrait. Here are some tips to help you style your family.
Avoid Patterns: Now when I say this, I don't mean across the board. Everyone in a different plaid shirt can look very hodge-podge. However, patterned tights or a patterned scarf as an accent can be very appealing to the eye. Remember, that patterns bring focus. So, consider making your little one the highlight or limit patterns to one or two small areas. Avoid loud, busy patterns for a main top and definitely don't use two different patterns.
Avoid Words on the front of your shirts: These are so popular and fun. But, when was the last time your child stood still in a picture so you could read their shirt? Most of the time half the words won't show. This style can also make your images look really dated after awhile, as trends and slang change. Go for a more timeless look.
Dark Colors: The old standard remains true. Dark colors are slimming. Don't be afraid of color: The ability to mix colors tastefully is a talent indeed. I suggest having two complimentary base colors and a pop of a third contrasting color. When in doubt, ask!
Be Comfortable: I can not stress this enough. If you are uncomfortable in your clothes, there is a good chance it will show in your images. If you know you don't like your arms wear a longer sleeve. When you feel great, you'll look great!
Accessorize!: Accessories can elevate your look. Consider a scarf, hair accessory, or statement necklace.
Texture is good. Avoid pure white or neon color tops. Opt for a warmer neutral instead.
FOR NEWBORN SESSION:
Solid, light colored tops. Neutral or muted colors will photograph best. Texture is nice but patterns will be distracting. Keep jewelry to a minimum and skip the watch, these photographs will be close up and you want your baby to be the focus.
WHEN DO I GET TO SEE THE IMAGES?
You will get to see your images 1-2 weeks after your session. I will create a password protected online gallery for you to share with your friends and family. Anyone with the password can place and order and have it shipped to them. I will also share some favorites to Facebook and Instagram.
WHEN DO I GET TO BRING EVERYTHING HOME?
Everything is shipped to your home within 3 weeks.
WHAT KIND OF INVESTMENT DO MOST FAMILIES MAKE?
Most families invest anywhere from $350-$1000 on their custom portraiture. However, everyone’s needs are different – some spend a little more and some spend a little less.
