Scheduling Your Session
I take on a very limited number of family sessions each month. I recommend booking your session 3-4 months in advance. All family sessions take place outdoors 1-2 hours before sunset. Family sessions are scheduled March – November.
Planning Your Session
Many factors come in to planning an outdoor family session. Location and clothing are the two most important. I choose locations based on seasons and lighting. When we schedule your session, we will discuss your ideas and visions. This will help me suggest dates and locations. Clothing is also important. I do not recommend matching outfits or everyone wearing the same color. I love mismatched and coordinating colors. I also want you to be comfortable during your session. You may be running through a field or laying down on a quilt. You may be swinging the baby or having a tea party with your preschooler. Family sessions are fun and laid back. If you aren’t comfortable in your clothing, we won’t get natural expressions from you. I suggest visiting my What to Wear guide for more suggestions on coordinating family outfits.
Shannon was great! She doesn’t make it feel like a picture session at all. She was great at letting my five year old son play and have a good time and still capture some beautiful, perfect moments with him! I will definitely be using her again! ~Victoria
