My favorite place to shoot family and maternity sessions are outdoors. I have several go to locations for shooting or I am always open to your suggestions like a park near your home or even in your backyard.
I think the best light is the hour before sunset and aim to plan my sessions during this time when possible. I love getting to know my clients and making them feel at ease during the session to capture real and emotional moments. I encourage clients to bring things that add sentimental value to your photos.
Whether it be your 2 year old’s special blanket or a quilt made by your great grandmother, a personal item can really make your session special. I love helping with wardrobe planning so don’t hesitate to ask questions about your outfits. I don’t overuse props for these sessions. My goal is to create images that are classic, clean and timeless.
