What is a portrait session contract?
Your portrait session contract is very important. It explains in detail what you can expect from me as your photographer, your session details, as well as my company policies and procedures. By signing your contract you are confirming your portrait session date and time with me.
What should I wear?
When photographing a group or couple it's very important to keep color tones within the same color family e.g., pastels, earth tones, brighter tones, creams etc. I would avoid shirts with logos altogether, but this is entirely your decision. If one person is wearing a very busy pattern, keeping the other outfits simple and within the color spectrum is very appealing to the eye. Adding different textures and layers can also help your images to really stand out. It's very important to try to find materials that do not wrinkle easily. I often have clients iron their clothing at home and bring them to change into on location. You will also need to think about your shoes. If we will be hiking to your location, you may want to bring some athletic shoes or waterproof boots along. For more clothing inspirations I highly recommend checking out my Pinterest board.

You gallery expires after 2 weeks. All orders need to be completed by this date. If you need more time there is a $25 fee to extend it another 2 weeks.
When is the best time to book my session?
The more time you give me, the better. Session availibilty is limited and session dates, especially weekends, book out very quickly. Usually, a month or two in advance is sufficient. For newborn portrait sessions it is essential to book sessions at least two months before your due date. Maternity sessions are usually photographed in the last month of pregnancy. For weddings, it is best to book months and even a year before your big day. This gives us time to plan, meet, and discuss all of the important details of your wedding.
How many wardrobe changes do I get?
1 hour portrait sessions can have up to two clothing changes and 2 hour portrait sessions can have up to four clothing changes.
