What will my Senior Session be like?
I want your session to be as unique as you are! We'll be in contact a few times prior to your session, first and foremost so that we are not meeting for the first time on location. I find already having met before the day of your shoot will help with some anxiety and or shyness etc behind the camera. We'll chat about wardrobe, what your taste is, and I want to know what you're envisioning, poses you love etc. On the day of, I'll give you directions, when to smile, where to look, where to put your hands... everything! If we find that you're super comfortable and move from pose to pose on your own, awesome I'll follow your lead as well!
What should I wear for my Senior Session!!?
Well first and formost, be comfortable. If you're not, it's likely you'll be able to tell in the photos. The focus is going to be on you, how beautiful you are, and your personality. My opinion is simple is better, nothing too busy. Layers add texture and interest to a photo. One of my favorite things is wind and movement, so maybe one outfit is soft and flowy. The other is maybe something you love that will remind you of this exact time in your life. We can chat more about that in person and find something perfect for the type of shoot and images your looking to achieve. Additionally, I have a small wardrobe of pieces you can absolutely borrow, so if you've got something specific in mind, run it past me! I may have something for you to use!

Will you photograph my children together or just individially?
Of course I will get some shots of your kiddos all together! Individual portraits are my specialty, focusing on one idividual, having their personality and uniqness come through in the photo is what I love to give to my clients. This will be the main focus, but yes yes yes, we will get multiple photos and pose of them all together.
What do you mean by the quantity range of digital images received?
I know, that's a big range of images! Every session is going to yield a different amount of images, depending on each different client. Client cooperation is important, some toddlers, and even teens, just aren't having it that day. In that case, I do my absolute best to work with them and capture amazing images, I assure you I will get a handful of beautiful images, however this is where the number difference can come into play.
