5 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Your Session

1. Show up on time. Make sure you show up to your appointment on time and ready to go. It’s important to be there on time because chances are that your photographer scheduled the time to capture certain lighting for your photos. You should also be mindful of the fact that your photographer may have more than one shoot in a day and they cannot be late to their next appointment. All sessions (other than weddings) usually last between an hour to an hour and a half. If you’re late to your appointment could potentially take valuable time away from your session with your photographer.

2. Be flexible. Although photographers can make magic happen, they cannot control every aspect of your photoshoot. Weather can be tricky sometimes so be prepared to change up your plan a little. If it is hot, consider bringing a change of clothes. If it is too windy, try letting your hair down. If it’s rainy, be open to a steamy, artsy session in the rain. It is important to keep realistic expectations for your session and be prepared!


3. Practice posing. Practicing posing is a sure way to guarantee that you will enjoy how you look in your photos and be confident. Practice in the mirror and find your most flattering angle or serious face. Your photographer wants you to have the most flattering poses but sometimes it’s nice to have a little extra help from you! Confidence is key, but remember, I will make sure you look good no matter what. The process will be effortless, especially if you practice.

4. Have a plan. If there is a particular photo that you want to try out during your session be sure to discuss it with your photographer BEFORE your shoot. If there are extra props involved, be sure to bring them along with you. Your photographer will work with you to get the photos you want the most but it’s up to you to do your homework first.

5. Relax. 

Be sure to relax! Your photography session should be fun and stress free. Have fun getting your picture taken and trying out different poses. Feel free to bring a bottle of champagne and enjoy a drink during your session. Trust in your photographer and you will have a great shoot!

A Letter to my wild clients
This is a letter to my clients. Specifically the wild ones. The one's who lay on their back, on floor, in their wedding dress because they trust me. The ones who walk backwards holding hands because I asked you to. The ones who will walk 12 flights of stairs because you know the shot is going to be epic. The ones who drink margaritas with me and then convince me to climb a ladder on the side of a building to reach a rooftop even though I'm petrified of heights..... The ones who know what they want, and who have decided I'm their photographer before they've had the chance to meet me. The ones who crash a private party with me ...
The Burden of Disappointment
This month was rough. I’m talking quarter life crisis if that’s even a thing. I ran over my new iPhone 7 plus, got pulled over and got a ticket, had technical difficulties with images and didn’t even realize it, had to set boundaries with a family member to whom I will no longer be speaking, who also happens to be my brother. On several occasions I found myself crying in public, in my car, and not sleeping at all. I had an abnormal amount of awkward and incredibly hard conversations, in which you just wish throw in the towel and pray that things could be different- but they can’t because they are what they are. Also you can't "throw in the t ...
