I cannot express the importance of family enough. With family members constantly growing up, moving away, and schedules getting busier and busier I recommend booking a family session now to ensure that even when your family is distant, you still have the photos that we took together to cherish for a lifetime.


WHERE are you going to take your photos. Luckily for you I have a list of recommended locations you can find on my prices page. These are places that are FREE and open to the public. If you would like to take photos somewhere that requires an admission fee you must take care of that for the both of us. If you are someone who loves country vibes and want to take pictures at a barn or something similar to this YOU must find this location. Barns, fields, and areas like this are almost always privately owned so you have to find someone who is willing to allow you to be on their property! (Usually people on Facebook are more then willing to help out with this) If you genuinely have no idea where you want to take pictures after looking at my recommended locations feel free to ask questions or ask me what I think. I've been to these locations dozens of times so I know what to expect! 

WHAT are you going to wear? I cannot express how important what you wear during your session is. We all have different styles and aesthetics, but it important to wear something that will flatter you. This means it probably isn't the best idea to wear a shirt that shows your bra straps, a skirt that is too short for you to sit down in, or pants that have a stain on them. Dress to impress. Make sure your clothes are ironed and not wrinkled. For family sessions I DO NOT reccomend outfit changes, but they are still welcome. Keep in mind that some locations that I recommend do not have a bathroom to change in. Unless you are someone who is okay with flashing the world when changing, I recommend bringing a sheet to hold up around you as you get changed. As for coordinating with your family, I recommend picking a particular color scheme depending on the season and having different shades and tints of the same color. For fall/winter: orange, purple, red, black, grey, blue - For Spring/Summer: red, yellow, orange, white, grey, blue. 


PLEASE dont hesitate to ask for help or ask questions. This is not my first rodeo, I know what to expect and I know what I'm doing, so don't worry!
