This photo shoot can take place wherever you would like. It can be right in your backyard or at your favorite park. As I said before, I’m always looking for new locations and ideas. Once we arrive at the location your only job is to have fun with your family and I’ll capture all of those precious moments. If you have any props that help to tell the story of your family please bring them. It could be a family quilt, unique chair, fun hat, instrument, umbrella, whatever! If you would like to include your pets I love animals so that’s not a problem. Keep in mind, though, if you bring pets you may want to bring someone to help with the pet while we’re taking photos without them in it. Bringing snacks and water is always a good idea (for humans and pets!). When deciding on clothing, think about what style of pictures you want. Do you want a fun urban feel or simple and natural? Dressing in layers will add depth to the photos. Accessories like textured scarves, jackets, boots, and jewelry will add elements of fun and whimsy. Please note that while hats can be fun, they also hide your face, cast shadows, and mess up hair. So, if you’re considering a hat, just be willing to take some photos with and without it. If you’re having a hard time deciding on clothing, pack a suitcase and we’ll decide together!
