outdoor sessions

Don't wait any longer to update those old photos! Time is fleeting, and you will want to remember these amazing moments in your life! So, let's go outside and have a blast! I promise you...this will not be another boring family photo shoot! The main objective is FUN....ok and gorgeous portraits!

what to wear?

You will receive a full style guide before the portrait session, but here are some style tips for now...

 

1. Pick a couple colors and have different coordinating shades on everyone. Those colors can be bold or they can be soft. It just depends on what suits your family the best.


2. Found a pattern you like? Use it! No need to stay with solids, but don’t use too many busy patterns. Throw in some solids or real simple stripes to balance it out, and remember that things with texture photograph beautifully!

3. Add some POP! If you are wearing simple colors, like black, tan, or even gray. Then, add a pop of color or personality with colorful jackets, shoes, scarves, or other accessories. Be you!

BOOKING YOUR SESSION:

All Studio & On Location sessions are typically booked 1-2 months in advance.

THE PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION
I pride myself on exceptional customer service and a commitment to each family’s relationship and the creation of unique art for their home. During your complimentary online or phone consultation, I will get to know you. We’ll discuss your goals and personal style, so that I can create a session for you that complements YOU. Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell me about your home and your vision, and I’ll add in my creativity to make it happen.

SESSIONS AT THE STUDIO OR ON-LOCATION
Studio sessions take place in my Elgin home studio. The session fee includes my time and talent along with backdrops, props and clothing changes. If you see something you like in any of my galleries, be sure to mention it before your session. I work with controlled studio lighting and a plethora of props and set designs. The studio offers a fun but relaxed environment where I create a look that is timeless and sophisticated. When the weather is warmer, let’s take it outside! On Location Sessions make for some amazing and unique images, especially if the location is special to you. So consider carefully where you’d like to have your session, or I can recommend a spot for you.

EQUIPMENT:

I take pride in my work and only shoot with top of the line equipment.   I currently shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III, 50 1.2L, 24-70 2.8L, 100 2.8L Macro, 16-35 2.8L

TURNAROUND TIME:

I am now offering SAME DAY ordering appointments! That means we will have our session that will run 60-90 minutes. We will take a short 30 minute break, and then have our ordering appointment.
