I take pride in creating beautiful photography to last for a lifetime. However, an Outdoor Photography Session needs to be prepared.
There are many points to be cleared, and organised, such as to find a quiet location, what to wear, the date, the time, and so on.
We go through all this details during a pre-session, here are a few ideas to think about.
I encourage to keep things simple, to wear what will look good on you, and make you comfortable and attractive. I also encourage mothers to have their hair and makeup (professionally) done.
Avoid clothing with logos and busy patterns, it can shift the focus away from the purpose, you and/or your Family !
I want to capture the real you, your natural expressions, smiles and eyes.
For Family Session I will suggest you to coordinate your outfits . For a casual look, Jeans work very well, with neutral colors for the top, and similar tones. Keep things as natural looking as possible, according to the season. You can also bring your favorite accessories, it can add personality to your look.
For your little ones, bring what they may need during the session, some water, and healthy snacks for a little break, their favorite toy to comfort them, and a second outfit (It can be useful !)
The best time for an outdoor photography session is two hours before sunset, so we can use this beautiful golden light.
Outdoor Family & Kids Sessions are up to two hours (Parents, siblings). We already had a pre-meeting to go through all details, about the location (and authorization if needed), and organisation.
You 'll need to choose your clothing carefully before, so make sure to give you, and your family time to get ready, and dressed for the session.
As the sun goes down, there will be less time for the session.
Get a snack before the session, you will not appear at your very best with an empty stomach, and certainly not the little ones.
