How to Prepare for a Child Session

COLORS

The colors that photograph the best are neutrals, like blues, greys, whites, maroons, mustard yellows and greens. If you wear something bright and crazy it can be distracting, so please stay away from neon colors. We want the focus on you not your clothes. When choosing colors choose a main color and an accent color when having more that one color in your outfits.

 

STYLE

When you are trying to figure out what to wear stay away from logos, sayings and characters on shirts.
We recommend choosing 2-3 outfits, it is great to have options.
When choosing outfits you want them to wear something casuel and something a bit dressier (button-up shirts, dresses, nice jeans no holes, etc)

SHOES

The best shoes to wear is something comfortable and black, brown or grey. We do not photograph feet much but if you want to color pop that could be creative. 


ACCESSORIES

When chooseing jewelry you want to make sure they match with the color scheme or they don't stand out. If you love bright colors and glam it is fun to color pop, if you wear grey have your jewelry a fun bright color within the scheme of your outfit. Sun hats or favorite ball caps are also a great thing to bring to the session.

Hair
For hair you can keep it like they normally wear it but its a good idea to style a little more than you normally do.

THE DAY OF THE SESSION

Drink plenty of water. Bring snacks and a drink just in case they are hungry, it can make sessions go better sometimes. 

Get your all outfits ready and on hangers. It helps from wrinkling and easier to find when you are getting ready.  

Give yourself plenty of time to get ready so there is no stress of rushing to the shoot or being late. 

We love to capture your child having fun along with some traditional portraits. 

We will help you with the rest at the session.
