Info about preparing for your session--I cannot stress enough!!

  • Create a color palette-one that compliments all family members and no neon colors for shirts and shoes, please!
  • Select your style---causal, dressy, beach like
  • Please try on your outfit days ahead of the session.  Check for panty lines, hanging bra straps.  Please iron/press out the wrinkles at this time.   If you do it now then on the day of the session you won't be worried with one extra chore
  • Makeup-use a little more than regular foundation.  If you know of a makeup artist, have them do your makeup
  • Now do one test run with your outfit and makeup.  Take a photo of yourself.  Do you like what you see?  If you do then you are set.  If you don't, contact me and I will extend my help in any way I can
