FOR FAMILIES: Wearing the same color is very important in building unity into the photo. However, you do not ALWAYS have to have the same color on if that is not your preference, just whatever color compliments the other such as, girls in white, boys in black, or parents in black and kids in denim, or different but complimentary shades of the same color.Of course you should always feel free to wear whatever you are most comfortable in, but remember, this photo will last for generations so you know you want to look your best, which also means trying to get plenty of sleep the night before. If you have a family pet, please feel free to include them as well. Sometimes bringing a colored bandana (the same color as the family's tops) for the dogs works great.If your child has a favorite doll or toy, feel free to bring it along as well. It adds to the individuality of the picture as well as helping to keep your little one happy and helping them to have fun. For outdoor sessions, don't forget to bring some water and maybe a snack, it can be hard work for a little one to sit still for 1/500th of a second. Please visit my Family Portraits Galleries

CHILDREN: I love taking child portraits in classic and creative ways, children are fun and always so beautiful. I can come to you and
set up in your home if you like, or we can do outdoor portraits of you and your children. There are a lot of beautiful parks and gardens around the Enumclaw, Maple Valley/ Covington/ Kent area, full of flowers, lakes and fun or even in your backyard. Bring their favorite toy or bring your pet along if you like! You can click here to view my Children's gallery.
MOTHERS AND MOTHERS TO BE: Mothers, if there is a new child on the way, let me be your photographer and take your "Before" and "After" Portraits. I will
photograph you as an "Expectant Mother to Be", with your "Little Bundle of Love" safe and warm inside. Then when he/she is ready, I will take his/her portrait, safe and warm in your arms. We can do outdoor maternity portraits, sitting in flowers, on a park bench in the shade or next to a lake, wherever you like. I can photograph you by yourself, with your husband or with your other children. Or we can do some in your home, studio-like portraits. I have a portable studio ready to go. I can use either a simple, yet classic, black or white background. Feel free to have a change or two of clothing available.You can click here to view my Maternity photography or here to view my Newborns gallery.
WHAT TO WEAR:
OUTDOOR SESSIONS: For GIRLS, simple, sleeveless dresses look the best. White is great when doing a session in or around flowers, but feel free to go colorfully bold! If you are looking for bright and colorful, go for it! For NEWBORNS color can really bring out their beautiful eyes and help make the photo a bit more playful. For LITTLE BOYS, having them wear just some denim overalls with or without a shirt underneath always comes out great. MOM, if you are going to be in the picture, be sure to wear a same colored dress or outfit too. DAD, a nice button up will do. You do not always have to have the same color on, just whatever color compliments the other such as, girls in white, boys in black, or parents in black and kids in denim, or different but complimentary shades of the same color.Of course you should always feel free to wear whatever you are most comfortable in, but remember, this photo will last for generations so you know you want to look your best, which also means trying to get plenty of sleep the night before.
HAIR AND MAKEUP: light to natural makeup works the best. If you have shorter hair that tends to fall in your face, be sure to try and have something on hand such as a hair clip or tie just incase your hair gets in the way. If you have long hair, past your shoulders, its usually ok, or as long as it will stay behind your ear. The same goes for little girls as well, headbands and barrettes work great.
INDIVIDUAL PORTRAITS: feel free to have a change or two of clothing. For session in a park, you can change in the restrooms if you have extra clothing, a lot of my clients prefer to change in their cars. Wear whatever you feel the most comfortable and attractive in. If you feel sexy in a pair of jeans and a nice shirt, then come in that. But whatever you wear, try to make the colors something simple, like a solid color or simple prints. If you wear something too wild, it will distract from your face. But again, if that is what you want, then by all means, wear it.
I want you and your family to have a good time and great photos, so please let me know what I can do to help. Please contact me for any questions or suggestions that you may have. If there is a special type of picture that you would like to have taken or a special place, do not hesitate to ask.
