What to Wear
Your Session is right around the corner!
Wear something you feel comfortable in. Pro-tip: Dress your kids Your clothes should be something you can feel confident in while getting your photo taken. Depending on how formal you'd like your session to be, make sure what your wearing is easy to walk around in and you won't have to constantly adjust you clothing. Feel free to bring layers along on your shoot too.
Avoid wearing neon colors or really patterned things, this will take away from your wonderful face and distract whoever is viewing the photo. Solid colors or earthy tones are always a safe bet. If you are feeling confused send over images of outfit options you have in mind and I can help you narrow it down.
Keeping it Simple
Every couple shows love, joy, and affection in their own unique ways. I can't fabricate that for you because you already know how you feel comfortable showing your love. This is why I keep posing prompt-based, I'll give you actions todo for you posing. (Ex: hold hands and walk here)
When I give you a prompt I want you to forget that I am even there, all you should worry about is how you feel at that moment. Be sure to keep on moving even after the prompt is done. You are always welcome to take a prompt or pose and run with it. Make it your own! I never want a client to feel uncomfortable. If you hate what I've asked you to do, I give you total permission to change it without questions to fit who you are.
I might ask you to do a prompt or hold a pose over and over again. That is usually because the light there is amazing and I want to make sure we don't miss this perfect shot.
Truth be told getting your photo taken can be pretty awkward. I get that 100% and will be working to make the experience as normal for you as possible. I'm so happy you've taken the chance to put yourself out there.
Your Love is Electric!
During your shoot my wheels are turning thinking about lighting, composition, location and making sure your photos are like no other out there! I'm always looking for your electricity you share together.
If you are unsure on how you look, feel free to ask me or your partner. Another set of eyes is always helpful as sometimes I forget to look for the tiny details and only catch them after the fact in editing. I am a bit of an editing wizard but will only edit out fly away hairs, smooth out skin and remove blemishes.
We are rolling with the kids. I check-in with how your little ones are doing before I check-in with you. You don't have to fit into all of these boxes but all of the above are great.
I hope these images can provide a bit of outfit inspiration! I can't wait for your session, it's going to be epic.
Leave any fears you've got behind there is no need to worry, you are going to do great!
