Before the shoot we discuss what to expect and any questions. If you have anything specific in mind, I love to hear your ideas.
Most shoots are done outdoors to take advantage of the natural light and unconfined space. It is low-key and relaxed. I have fun with your children. Newborns are photographed at your home where they are comfortable and we can take breaks as needed. Pet shoots are usually done at your home and make use of available window light and outdoor light.
Children & pets are unpredictable, so I take as much time as needed during the shoot. We stop for breaks and snacks or whatever it takes to unwind if those “stressed-out” moments should occur. Although a typical shoot takes 1 1/2 hours, I don’t put a time limit on capturing the kind of images you have come to me for.
WEATHER & ILLNESS
There is never a problem if we need to reschedule due to rain, cold, excessive heat or a bad runny nose. To get great, natural shots of your children, they need to feel well and be comfortable. I prefer to reschedule than do a shoot in less than optimal conditions.
