Before the Session

Once you have booked your session, I will spend some time with you either in person or on the phone to get to know you and understand what you are looking for from your pictures. We will discuss potential locations in Charlotte and surrounding towns, what to wear, what shots are important to you, and any other information that will be helpful to our preparation. This pre-session consultation will also help us to build a rapport that will allow us to relax and have fun during your session.

Your session can take place at your home or location of your choosing. If you're not sure where to hold your session, no worries, I have plenty of ideas. Whether you are looking for an urban setting, park or pastoral spot, there are lots of beautiful places around our city of Charlotte.

What to Wear

I get this question a lot. Be comfortable and choose clothes that make you feel good. I want you to be at ease and have fun during your time with me. Dress according to the season. I love layering and accessories-they add so much texture and interest to the photo.  I love when moms wear dresses.  Don't forget about the guys.  Men tend to go for the plain button down shirt and I recommend the addition of a vest, scarf, hat, etc. to add interest.   If we're doing a family shoot, choose a color pallet of colors that coordinate well with each other but avoid heavy matching.   Currently, I love pastels and creams and greys.  For maternity, I've got you covered.  I have nearly 60 custom gorgeous gowns that are available for your session.  Check out my Pinterest board if you need more ideas.

The Session

I want you to enjoy your family's photography session.  Be prepared to get close, snuggle, hug, have fun, be silly and enjoy your loved ones! I will help you with "posing" and what to do but some of my favorite photos are ones where I've captured the candid interactions between you and your family. Relax and have fun with it.

If we meet at your home, I will spend the first few minutes finding rooms with the best light. If we meet on-location somewhere around Charlotte, I will have already scouted the location ahead of time to identify the spots with beautiful light and interesting backdrops.

Plan on setting aside 1 to 1 1/2 hours for our photo shoot. Feel free to bring an outfit change if you want more variety in your photos.
