#goals…

 

MY GOAL WITH EVERY SESSION IS TO OFFER YOU A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE THAT’S FUN AND UPBEAT, SO THAT I CAN CAPTURE YOUR REAL PERSONALITY.  I WANT EVERY SENIOR TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE AND AUTHENTIC IN FRONT OF MY CAMERA. I CAN HELP YOU WITH OUTFIT CHOICES, COORDINATING COLORS AND PICKING OUT LOCATIONS, I CAN ALSO RECOMMEND SOMEONE TO YOU FOR HAIR AND MAKEUP!

tips…

 

#1 WHEN PICKING LOCATIONS, I SUGGEST YOU LOOK AT THE WATER OR BEACH, A CITY OR TOWN WITH UNIQUE BUILDINGS OR ARCHITECTURE AND A FIELD, FOREST OR PARK AREA.

#2 ALWAYS BRING MORE OUTFITS OR CLOTHING THAN YOU WILL NEED.

#3 ON THE SUBJECT OF CLOTHING, TRY TO PICK COLORS THAT ENHANCE OR ARE GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN TONES, ALSO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE LOCATIONS WE WILL BE SHOOTING AT. PROBABLY NOT THE BEST IDEA TO WEAR A SHORT DRESS, SKIRT OR HEELS IF WE ARE IN A FIELD, SAVE THAT FOR A MORE URBAN LOOK.

#4 WIND…..IS NOT OUR FRIEND, A LITTLE BREEZE CAN BE NICE IT GIVES MOVEMENT TO YOUR PHOTOS BUT WINDY CONDITIONS CAN MAKE YOUR HAIR A HOT MESS. I ALWAYS GIVE THE OPTION TO RESCHEDULE BUT IF NOT THEN I WOULD RECOMMEND STYLING YOUR HAIR WITH SOME OR ALL OF IT UP, LARGE AMOUNTS OF HAIR ACROSS THE FACE MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO PHOTOSHOP OUT!

#5 TEMPS BELOW 50 CAN BE DIFFICULT AS WELL, YOUR FACE, ESPECIALLY YOUR NOSE AND CHEEKS BECOME RED IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. SNOW AND WINTER PICTURES ARE NICE, BUT I WOULD RECOMMEND SPLITTING UP YOUR SESSION INTO A SUMMER/WINTER, SPRING/WINTER OR FALL/WINTER. THAT WAY YOU'RE NOT EXPOSED OUTSIDE FOR 2+ HOURS.
