As you prepare for your session, here is some info to help you plan.
What you wear is a key component of what makes a beautiful and impactful photo. Choose clothing that is not too far fetched from who you really are but also not your every day jeans and t-shirt. Be sure you can move in what you are wearing. Flowing dresses are great for movement and create a more dramatic look. A great tie and hat can add personality. Wear shoes that are agreeable with the environment we are photographing in. Colors depend on skin tone and setting. Think about the location and how your wardrobe will look with in it. Also, consider the rooms you’ll be hanging the photos is. You may want to coordinate the colors you wear with the room you are hanging the photo in. I have created a Style Board for inspiration: https://www.pinterest.com/kellia/session-style/ and for kids: https://www.pinterest.com/kellia/kiddo-style/
Together you and I will select a location based on the type of environment you want and what style you have in mind. If you love a light and airy organic environment, I will find us a beautiful natural setting that may include an open field with tall grass and lovely trees. If you prefer something more modern and symmetric, I’ll look for buildings and structures to accommodate that style. There are plenty of options in our Valley. It may require a 30 minute drive but we will find the perfect spot for you. There’s also the option of a home session. If you want to document life in your home, I’m so happy to come over and capture life as you do it in your little corner of the world. Good window light is all we need for a really great home photo session.
