WHAT TO EXPECT

BEFORE YOUR SESSION:

Once you have booked your portrait session, you should then start preparing your outfits, hair and make up style ideas. Need a few ideas for inspiration, check out Instagram, and even my Pinterest account.

THE DAY BEFORE:

On the day before your session, I will give you a reminder call to review any information we have or help with any questions you may have. It’s best to get connected before your shooting locations-lots to choose from in downtown Pittston, West Pittston and even Ransom. If your looking for something different, just let me know before your session and I can scout out some areas too. Alley ways, planter boxes and old fences are a beautiful thing.

YOUR SESSION DAY

On your session day, we will meet ten minutes before the start of your session at the chosen location. Come ready and dressed and bring all of your outfits you plan to wear AND THEN SOME!!!! The more outfits we have the more options, and options are fabulous! Don’t worry if you’re a little apprehensive. I understand how important this is to you so nerves are perfectly normal. It won’t last long though- we will warm up to one another quickly. I move fast and furious and shoot lots of poses so be ready to move quickly from one spot to the next.

WHAT TO WEAR

Wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident! Patterns, bold colors, and accessories photograph really well. My goal is to capture you in your natural element, so feel free to get creative with your wardrobe! To make the most of your session, be sure you have variety in your outfits. Add necklaces, scarves, hats, jewelry, sports gear, shoes and/or any other object that can personalize your session. Also stay true to your location choice to optimize your vision!

Please avoid clothing with words or logos, no neon colors, even though they are popular right now, they don’t look good on photos. Avoid Self Tanner unless you have done it and love it! If you decide to get a spray tan, make sure a get it at least a few days before your session. Please know there will be an editing up-charge because I can assure you, there is no perfect spray tan. The dark splotchy areas will especially show on your fingers, hands, arms, knees and feet. I totally get the desire to be sunkissed for your pictures but please understand the effect it has on your images.

Make sure all clothing is clean and pressed before hand. Men please be freshly shaven.

A $350.00 non-refundable retainer is required upon securing your date. All other purchases will be made after you receive your online gallery.
