Q: What should I WEAR?

A: Choosing a color palette is a great place to start. Rather than everyone wearing the same outfit, try mixing and matching a few different colors and tones.

Layers and accessories such as hats, scarves, headbands, and jewelry add dimension and personality to your photographs.

Comfort is key! So wear something you feel great in.

Lastly, try to avoid wearing white, obvious brand names written on clothing, and bulky light colored sneakers, as they tend to draw attention away from you!

Check out my Pintrest board "Fashion for Photo Shoots".  I'll be updating it regularly for ideas and inspiration!

Any special things that are important to you or your child.  For example a favorite stuffed animal, book, or toy.

Q: Why is customized photography so expensive?

A: Your investment goes beyond the 1+ hour session, but also includes: pre-session set up, travel to the location, the photography session, backing up files, several hours of processing(editing), & packaging + mailing. I'd recommend (and would be so grateful) if you took the time to read THIS ARTICLE which explains it further.

A: Families who have adopted, are fostering, or have served in the military can receive a 10% discount on their session fee. Just ask! :)

Q: How did I become a photographer?

A: My Dad is a photographer, and for as long as I can remember he would pull out the projector, show me his old slides, and tell me the stories behind them. Saturday mornings were often times for pancakes and reminiscing...

That influenced me a lot I think, growing up realizing how important cherished memories were held in photograph form.

I had a few different point-and-shoot cameras when I was little, and I loved the anticipation of waiting to get my film developed. Then I became familiar with my Dad's film SLR and loved it even more. Once I got my first digital SLR (a Nikon D50) it opened up a new world for me.

Now I use a Nikon D300s and own four lenses. It's been a wild ride of adventure and learning, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
