Session Prep Guide
This guide is designed to help you prepare
for a successful session. My goal is to provide my clients with a pleasing and fun experience, high quality images, diverse product line and exceptional customer service.
Thank you for letting me document this sweet moment in your life.
Let's adventure together!
What should I avoid?
•Maxi Watches and Necklace
•Bracelets that don't go with the look •Neon colors at all costs
•Caps (unless we are doing a sportive session)
•(Guys) Short with pockets on sides
•High heels if we are shooting on beach, river or grass.
•Anything with logos, graphics, labels, etc...
•All black or all white outfit
Check out my client closet with available outfits for your session and my Pinterest board for outfits inspiration
If you are still on the fence of what to wear, you can always send me pics of what you have and I will be happy to help. You are also welcome to come over the studio to either try my available outfits or to bring your own and mix with mine to help you find the perfect ''combination'' for your session.
•If you are a fan of the boho style I have a peacock chair (my most popular prop for maternity and senior sessions) and it can be requested by you to be used at the day of your session with no additional charges. If you have any interest just let me know and we will arrange that.
• Now would if you like to add some glam to your session or even fresh flowers? If it's either a vintage mirror, a couch, a bouquet or if you have a set up in mind that you would like to execute but don't have all the props I highly recommend: Diedra's with Every Last Detail
She has awesome pieces. Her rentals starts at $25.
If you would like to add confetti to your session please consider the biodegradable ones.
If you are wanting: Smoke Bombs
Purchase at least a couple ''Dual Events'' or ''Single Event'' as they last longer.

Glasses can be a challenge in photographs often causing unwanted glaring and blocking important details of your eyes. If your comfortable I may ask you to remove your glasses for some shots.
Sunburns and spray tans. In the week leading up to your session be cognizant of your sun exposure. Fixing sun burns and harsh tan lines take extensive editing and require an extra retouching fee.
Please be sure that your nails are manicured, nothing fancy though just because your hands will make their way into the photos.
Wear your makeup 20% darker than what you would normally wear. It will help add depth and contouring.
Make sure your nails are manicured nothing fancy though just because your hands will make their way into the detail photos.
