When we chat on the phone before your family shoot, I'll ask you what you want for your session. We’ll talk about what locations would best suit your style. Some ideas are: modern city, the beachy look, a country setting, nature enthusiast...you see where I am going with this. By the answers you give me, I will know just exactly what your looking for. What ever you see your family portraits in, together we will start building your session location. We want your location to best suit your home decor and families personalty.
A WEEK or 2 BEFORE THE DAY OF YOUR FAMILY SHOOT
Decide what everyone will be going to wear. When we chat on the phone we also be discussing ideas. It is best to stay in the same color tones. Not everyone has to be wearing the same color but try to stay in the same color scheme, eg, jewel tones, warm hues
*wear solid colored clothing/ some patterns are ok as long as only one or two in the group is wearing it. (we will talk more about that in our phone pre-consultation)
*choose muted tones that are a bit subdued
*choose similar tones for your top and bottom (both dark or both light)
*choose 1-3 colors for your group portrait, ones with similar tones that go nicely together and have everyone work within that colour palette. For example: dark green, navy, and burgundy – all dark jewel tones. OR tan, a lighter olive green, and denims – all lighter, softer tones.
*choose a top with sleeves at least to the elbow
*choose dark socks and footwear (unless it’s a barefoot photo on the beach)
*keep jewelry simple and minimalist
* Be sure to have your hair cut and colored at least 1-2 weeks before your
* Make sure that you don't have any tan lines. (at the very least don't go out on the boat the day before without any sunscreen, lol)
* If your are going to wear nail polish on your hands and toes make sure they are
neat and polished.
* (gals) Make sure that all of your bras match your clothing. (a red bra strap does
not look good under a yellow sun dress)
* Please have your clothes on hangers or neatly folded in a traveling bag.
DAY OF YOUR FAMILY SESSION
1st thing 1st!! Make sure that everyone has food on their stomach, I know that's a no-brainer, but trust me, everyone will get so busy in the excitement of getting ready that some may forget to eat. A full stomach makes for a much happier session. Allow plenty of time to get ready for your pictures, including driving time to your desired location. I look forward to your day almost just as much as you do!
