Your session...

What can I expect during my session?

Expect your family to have fun...Children should be children from the charm of their laughter to the charm of your childs' spirit. I am personalities, not poses....A session is best when parents do not encourage their children to be still and smile on command. I am about capturing your family's individual spirit. Trust that I will anticipate the moment and capture the types of images that drew you to my work.

Location Location...

I love shooting outdoors with natural lighting, you cannot copy God's lighting... You may have a special location in mind but if you need help I have some great locations. I also have my indoor studio.

What to wear?

I am definitely a casual person...More of a t-shirt, jeans and of course barefeet kind of gal. Keeping it simple is best for timeless images, solid colors, no large or bold prints or colors that may distract from the expressions of the face. Texture that is found in ribbed or cable knit material photographs beautifully. Denim is always a great choice.

Children and families: same style of dress similar in tones photograph best. If you are doing big family groups assign a specific color to each family.

Pregnancy and newborns: I love the pregnant belly...Women should wear loose fitting clothing to the session, so that you will not have any unwanted marks. It is always great to have some bare belly shots and some tight fitting clothes to show off the belly. Men should wear long-sleeved shirts, it brings more attention to mom's belly...It is all about mom's belly... With newborns they are best to photograph within the first two weeks. They grow so fast and it is important to capture this sweet time. Newborns are best with little or no clothing, clothing distracts from what is really the best subject, the newborn. Parents holding the newborn skin to skin is great or with minimal clothing such as tank tops or camisoles. I offer a package that includes pregnancy, newborns and a family session to be completed the first year of your new arrival.

Seniors: Bring 2 to 3 outfits. If you have a uniform, a letter jacket or even a skateboard something that represents you..because this session is all about you so enjoy...I also like to include a mini family session. It is a changing time for everyone and your family is apart of your story.

*For all sessions feel free to bring changes of clothes, remember things like grooming gear, snacks that do not leave any evidence, wipes and this is Texas and it is hot, bring water... all super models need water.

This is North Texas...

What if the weather is not that great the day of your session. I have learned over the years that you have to be flexible with kids and weather. I always leave a little wiggle room in my bookings. I also have my in-home studio. So no worries...

Seattle and destination weddings are also available...
