before the first shutter click…

July 15, 2013

I love my mother, I truly do. But I hate these outfits! Jeans and matching tops, almost identical color patterns, it just doesn’t work anymore. These photos are from a. my childhood annual studio photos and b. very outdated. I am so thankful when I went home last year we updated these photos. (and kept it fashion forward!) We don’t match perfectly, but our personalities show in each outfit, we’re comfy and still look great.

Session booked, decisions made. Now what? Whatever it is, don’t panic over outfits, locations, style, etc. Let me help and you will know exactly what to expect from your session before the first shutter click. Each session has a pre-session consult included.

This means we grab some Starbucks as my treat and talk about what you want to get out of your experience with me. We’ll go over the questionnaire you answered when you confirmed your booking. Have questions about clothes, props, location? All that will be covered! I want you to feel as relaxed and stress-free as possible.

Can’t meet in person? Don’t fret! I totally get being busy, we all have lives. We can set up a Skype time or set aside time to chat on the phone. Whatever works for you.

Want to feel prepared for your pre-consult? Check out some helpful links below to get you ready. Links may lead to boards I’ve compiled or blogs I’ve come across that I’ve found super helpful.
