What To Expect
Hi Pam! We are still on for tomorrow @ 6:45. I am keeping an eye on the sky..just in case we encounter not so ideal weather ..we will schedule a rain date that works for both of us:) Clouds are ok..just no rain. and wet wet ground is not so ideal either. Here is a little info on what to expect:))
During the session, there will be no standard stiff poses, no forced smiles, no need to perform for the camera. Simply have fun together and I will capture the magical moments as they naturally unfold. The goal is to provide every client with images that are beautiful, soulful, and moving -unique photographs that will be cherished and displayed in your home for many years. In terms of what to wear...Simple is always better. No logos or crazy patterns as they distract from the photos..Keep it coordinated but not matching. I tell my clients to keep it within the same color family. You don't want someone with a red shirt and someone with a pink shirt. For color photos it just doesn't work. So try to keep everything in the same color family. I personally feel non collared shirts photograph better..they don't look as "stiff". The goal is to keep everything looking as natural as possible. Shorts are fine especially in hot weather. Shorts can be of same color as long as shirts have a bit of variety. Jeans rolled always photograph great! Long summer dresses for Mom are beautiful..try to keep these as natural looking as well. No crazy patterns. Dads always look great in "gap"style t-shirts. Crew or v-neck. Sam for children and Mom. We will be working in both the prairie section of Fort Sheridan and the beach. I will determine where we start when I get there. The light will determine when and where:) Bare feet at the beach is always best..and encouraged. As stated above..the goal is to keep everything as natural as possible. I will handle capturing the images. You just handle being you and having a ball with your family. I will take a few, and only a few, posed shots...group photos. The whole session should remain very laid back..that is the goal. Try to look at this as all of us hanging at the beach:)
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to call me:) See you all tomorrow!!
