why a "film" look?
I have always loved the film medium - the softness, the colors and the film grain. It's a classic, timeless look that will never go out of style. There's a certain richness in the blacks that I admire while the skin-tones tend to have a soft, creamy look. You can expect your images to have these qualities as well.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
If the weather looks like it'll be less than ideal conditions, we can either run with it, re-schedule or, if we were planning to photograph outdoors, see if we can photograph in-doors or in-studio.
what session is best for us?
I offer three different collections based on timing, 30, 60 or 120 minutes. While 30 minutes is perfect for a family wanting to do a quick update, 60 minutes is ideal for families with more than one child. Newborn sessions require 60-120 minutes so that we have time for baby details, family portraits and one-on-one's with each sibling and parent. For boudoir portraits, I recommend 60 or 120 minutes however, we can also create beautiful portraits with one outfit in 30 minutes.
how do we plan our session?
The planning stages of our session starts with picking a location. It's the most important decision in creating the overall look to your images. In-studio, indoors at your home or a hotel room (as long as there is ample natural window light) and outdoor locations all have unique qualities. I prefer to pick spots with neutral backgrounds that help keep the focus on my subjects.
Once we've decided on location, we then talk about outfits, props and hair and makeup.
