Frequntly Asked Questions



Where should our session take place?

Ideally, your session will take place in a park-like setting with a mixture of open areas and lush greenery. The open spaces allow for dreamy evening or morning light to perfectly light you and your family, while the lush greenery will provide shade and a change in background for other shots. I'm happy to recommend a few beautiful locations.


What time should our session take place?

30 minutes before through 1 hour after sunrise and the last 1.5 hours of daylight will offer up the softest, most flattering, dreamy lighting. We can photograph mid-day when the light is strongest, but we will need to photograph in the shade or indoors to avoid harsh shadows and squinting eyes.


Do you have a limit on the amount of people per session?

The session should include only immediate family (guardians/step-guardians and children) but additional family members such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc can be included as well if discussed before booking. The more people involved, the more our focus will be on gathering formal posed portraits with everyone looking at the camera, which can mean fewer fun candid/documentary style images, so it's best to keep the group as small as possible to allow for variety.


What should we bring to our session?

It's best to leave absolutely everything at home or in the car, if possible. The documentary/candid photographs will be captured during those little in-between moments that happen throughout the session. If you're holding a backpack, tote, or cell phone in those moments - those items will most definitely be in the photos and can change the overall feeling of the final image.
