FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long will a session last?
A portrait session will generally last from 1 to 2 hours. I strive to give personal attention and create lasting images that reflect who you are. The sessions will be relaxed and can go at a pace that is comfortable for you.

What time of day is best for outdoor portraits?
Outdoor (natural) light is the most flattering early in the morning or late in the evening (dusk).  Photos taken in the middle of the day are more likely to have shadows and uneven lighting.

What should I/we wear? 
You should wear whatever makes you feel gorgeous!  If you feel gorgeous, your pictures will look gorgeous!

For little ones we generally recommend solid colors.  Try to avoid cartoons, words, or distracting designs as much as possible.  The less distracting the attire the more the images will reflect them and not their clothing.

If there are multiple people in the party, the more coordinated the clothes, the more professional the image will look. You can choose whether to go casual or dressy, depending on what you want the image to portray. If you like, we would be happy to provide you with pdf files of recommended color schemes.  I will also be happy to discuss in more detail prior to the sitting.

When is the best time to schedule a maternity session?
The best time is really up to you, but I generally recommend around 32 to 34 weeks.

When is the best time to schedule a newborn session?
The ideal time to schedule the newborn session is in the first two weeks.  If you don’t want to leave your home with the baby, I am happy to come to you.
