Your session will typically last 1-1.5 hours. I like to shoot at golden hour (1 hour before sunset). I am aware that this is late but I encourage you to give your kiddos a late nap and bribing…I mean positive reinforcement is encouraged (mini marshmallows are a great choice). It is also a great idea to have snacks (crackers, goldfish, and pretzels) available, we want happy kiddos. I also want to encourage you not to stress…I know, I know it’s not always preventable…but the more relaxed you are the more relaxed your kiddos will be. I really want to just capture your family and your kiddos as naturally as possible. At every family session I will also grab individual shots, sibling shots and lovey dovey mom and dad shots. I try and make it as fun and stress free as possible
Disclaimer: Be prepared to smooch and cuddle quite a bit. Your session will take anywhere from 1-2 hours. I love personal touches at sessions, so I love to incorporate what is important to you. If you’re into Harley’s, bring your bike, music…let’s capture a serenade, sports…a great game of baseball…you catch my drift. I want your session to be 100% true to you and your love story. I have a passion for photographing couples, the more affectionate you are the better.
Your session will typically last 1-2 hours. For females, I recommend wearing a bit more makeup than you typically do. Professional makeup application is a great option; Ulta in Warsaw does a fantastic job. It is a great idea to wear a cami under your clothing to help with clothing changes. Wear clothing that reflects your personal style and most of all that you feel comfortable in. I know this seems obvious but please make sure your clothes are pressed and wrinkle free. Please inform me if there is anything that you are involved in that you would like to incorporate, this session is all about you! Guys, this may not be your dream day but I promise to make it as painless as possible.
Location, Location, Location
I have a few locations that I like to use, they are primarily in the Leesburg, IN area. I will ask if you prefer a natural/country setting or an urban/city setting. If there is a location that you would like to use that is perfectly fine by me (I will ask you questions about it just so I can be prepared). See below images of the locations I use.
