What does "on location" mean?
I do not work out of a studio, so all photo shoots take place outdoors, with the exception of newborns and small children (in winter). Prime lighting for outdoor photography is in the very early morning and early evening, but I do understand that children don't always work best at those times, so we can work together to get the perfect schedule for you. Not sure where you want your photos taken? No problem...as you scroll through my portfolio and blog, think about what you're most drawn to...nature and parks, the beach, or maybe a shabby brick building. I'll help guide you from there.
A typical family session lasts between 60-90 minutes before the kiddos fizzle out. If they keep going, I keep shooting. I will guide you through a few posed photos, mainly at the beginning of the session to warm the kids up. Once they are comfortable and have explored my camera, I let them play. I will follow each child individually to capture their true personality and I encourage you to join in their fun.
Coordinating is what I recommend, but I do not suggest completely matching outfits. Matchy/matchy outfits across an entire family tend to lack depth and personality in print. Have fun with your clothing and let it say something about you, but make sure it's comfortable, especially for small children. Color is great and welcome, but it's best to avoid very large prints, logos, or otherwise distracting items. Be mindful of your surroundings for the photos...we want to see you, and not have you blend in. Don't forget to accessorize and don't forget about the shoes!
