ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

OUTFITS

Be yourself – Start with your own personal style. Think about the clothing styles you currently have and the stores where you normally shop. Wearing clothes that look good on you will ensure meaningful photos that are true reflections of who you are as individuals.

Consider the setting of where your shoot will take place. Will it be at the park, your home, or somewhere else? Imagine your setting and the types of colors that will be there. Since the setting will end up being the background of your photos, it has a big impact on your overall look. For example, if you plan to have the shoot at a garden, wearing floral outfits might not be the best idea because you would blend in and get lost in the busy background. Ideally, you want to match but not match so much that you become the background.

LOCATION

Choosing a great location is one of the most important pieces of setting your photo shoot. The backdrop you select will set the stage for the entire session and will be an essential piece of every shot, pose and, ultimately, the finished product. We recommend picking a spot that’s special to you, either a spot you love, somewhere you frequent or a place that best represents your family.
