What should I expect at my session?
I like to keep your session relaxed, casual & super fun. This way I can capture natural expressions which reflect YOU. The more relaxed you are in your environment the more natural the shots! There will most probably be cuddling, hugs, kisses, running, jumping, climbing and lots of smiles… and if there are a few tears, that’s OK! I have been known to hand out ‘angie candies’ to the rockstars (relax people, they’re just starbursts!) Your session will be 1 to 2 hours long at the location of your choice and if you need some ideas on where to go, I have plenty to share! If you have any special requests, just let me know as we plan your session.
What is your style?
My style is natural-light, outdoor photography that is fun, casual, relaxed… fun and did I mention fun?! I love using color and variety along with different creative angles in my shoots. I love to include the environment! I like genuine smiles and natural poses that don’t always involve looking at the camera. Did I mention I fully hand edit every proof? =)
What should me/my family/my children wear to the shoot and do I need to bring anything?
Once you book with me, I will send you some examples & idea’s of what you & your family will look best in! Solid colors DEFINITELY work the best. Try to stay away from big, bold patterns that distract from your faces. Lighter clothing is generally better for the beach/outdoor but darker clothing can look great also! Just be sure to keep tones all light or all dark. If you have any special toys, memorabilia, clothing, hats, outfits that you want incorporated into the shoot bring them along!
What time of the day do you shoot?
WHENEVER THE SUN IS SHINING! =) However, my favorite? I love to shoot early morning or in the afternoon when the lighting is much softer!
How long does it take for me to see the photographs?
I do my best to process all my sessions as quickly as possible! With that being said, I take so much pride in presenting you with handmade heirloom art. I do not batch process or batch develop your images. Each one is gone over with a fine toothed comb and made with love. Usually 2-4 weeks after your session I will send you a link and password to your private online gallery. Your custom CD will arrive in the mail shortly after.
