Recommended places to shop


The week before your session

  •  If you’re including a pet, give them a bath!

  • Apply chap stick all week long. Chapped lips are impossible to photoshop – so this goes for you too guys!!


What should I wear?

Lace Outfits 

Textures can be added with a kimono or cardigan

Flowy dresses and Skirts is a must have it can add a beautiful movement to your pictures.


Don't be afraid to accessorize with:


Fedora/ Floppy Hats 

Crown Flowers 

Bow Tie 





Wear your makeup 30% 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.

Two days before your session

  • All outfits should be picked out

  • All clothing ironed or steamed and put onto hangers

  • Undergarments for each outfit cleaned and packed in your bag

  • Accessories and shoes for each outfit packed in your bag

  • Nail appointment completed or happening soon (avoid acrylics, neon colors or chipped polish!)

  • Guys – if you’re going to shave, do it at least a couple nights before your session to give time for any redness to go away.




Eye Glasses

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. 

Tan Lines

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.



•I have several props that can be requested by you to be used at the day of your session with no additional charges (inventory will be displayed below). If you have any interest just let me know and we will arrange that.
