Pictures are important... and they should also be fun!
If you and I start talking about a photo session, I will probably follow you on social media to find out more about your personal style.
Can you get rid of blemishes?
What should I wear?
Once we set up a session, I will send you online magazines and blogs to give you ideas!
If you are a girl... you might want to doll up with some hair and make-up and nice fingernails. I have a source for this if you want to contact me. Bring lots of clothes and we can decide! Bralettes are wonderful in that they appear as just a layer if a strap shows instead of a bra. Bring funky stuff, cool shoes and jeans, shorts, skirts, tops, hats, headpieces, your prom dress. White or cream lace dress is almost always a good choice. Bring what you would want to model on a photoshoot! We can pick 4-6 outfits that will photograph the best. Much more information can be found on the "Senior Girls" online magazine link under the "Info" tab.
If you are a guy, I promise I want you to look masculine and cool. I recommend three sets of clothes: formal (not kidding, the closest you have to a suit), jeans, khakis, shorts and various collared shirts, and then something that is specific to you and your interests (uniform, college shirt, props. Many more ideas and information are available in the "Senior Guys" online magazine link found under the "Info" tab.
Parents: My goal for you is Peace of Mind. Text or email me questions you have, but I hope that my online magazines prepare you for these pictures which will last a lifetime.
Brides - you may want to test out your professional hair, makeup and flowers for your bridal session. Also, you'll need your mom or a trusted friend to come, and bring a white sheet!
Business People - For head shots, please contact me and I will send you info.
Families - coordinate two to three colors without matching unless you have little kids. Two of the colors should be more neutral and the the third color can pop if you want. Think about colors you have in your home and choose from that palette so that the Wall portraits and albums with look like they belong.
Should I wear my glasses?
If you do want to wear your glasses in at least some of your portraits, have your optometrist remove the lenses for your session so that we don't get a reflective glare that hides your eyes.
Where do you shoot photo sessions?
I shoot in Flower Mound, Highland Village, Denton, and Grapevine. If you have ideas outside of those areas, give me a call. When you book a session, I will send you a link to the locations so you can choose!
Can I bring my dog, friend, hedgehog?
Probably! Let me know in advance!
