Your senior and family portraits should be all about YOU! Think about what your favorite pieces of clothing are and put together outfits around those! The key to getting the unique looks you want are outfits and accessories. Choose outfits that range from formal to casual that have a variety of textures and colors. Then finish them off with accessories like jewelry, jackets, hats or scarves!
Did you know that I can actually help you choose the perfect outfits? We get together before your session for a styling consultation and I can help you narrow down your favorite looks, choose shoes to match each outfit or pull pieces right out of your closet!
WHAT’S THE CONSULTATION ALL ABOUT?
In person or Phone consultations are the best and most efficient way to get to know each other and hash out the details of your shoot. During the consultation we will discuss clothing, hair/makeup options, accessories, location choices, decide on our meeting location, and answer any questions you have. If it’s important to you or your parents to meet in person, we will gladly arrange for an in-person consultation at one of our favorite local coffee houses
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I am located in the heart of Green Bay but I divide my time between the Rice Lake and Green Bay areas for my clients. Everything I do is on-location so I come to you! Styling consults and order appointments happen in your home or over Skype where we plan your session based around the styles you want. I want to help make your session unique just like you. Once products are ready we will meet to drop off your beautiful prints.
WHAT IF I LIVE FAR AWAY?
No worries! We can plan face time or skype meetings for your consult and order; then you can choose an area or town that you like. Maybe you want to check out Eau Claire or downtown Appleton and get locations that none of your friends will have OR I can come to you and scout the perfect spots in your home town. Mileage and travel expenses will be determined case by case.
CAN I GET DIGITAL FILES OF MY PICS?
Of course you can! We live in a digital age which is why all our sessions come with social media or full resolution files. After all most people love to share their images electronically or have the option to print them themselves. You can purchase the entire set of retouched portraits from your session or choose only your favorites. The most popular collection includes all the digitals as well as custom designed products to display in your home. Most people choose a combination of portraits and physical products.
DO I NEED PRO HAIR AND MAKEUP?
It’s 100% up to you, however I want you to look and feel your best! I have networked with some amazing stylists if you choose to want some extra help. They will go for the simple hair styling and minimal makeup or dramatic and bold. If you are the kind of gal that wants to go full glam…go for it! DIY your look or go pro or meet in the middle. We can also work out a plan where mid-way through your session we can change it up and do different hair and make up. The options are endless!
HOW DOES A SESSION WORK? DO I HAVE TO COME UP WITH MY OWN POSES AND LOCATIONS?
You have nothing to worry about, this is where I help you shine. I’m going to match your outfits with the perfect spot. Then I show you exactly how to pose and direct you from behind the camera, even including when to be serious, how big to smile and helping make you really laugh. Remember that's why that goofy husband of mine comes along? The photo shoot should be very relaxed, fun and let you express you and your family. We will meet on location and start from there. I will even bring a state of the are changing tent to help make changing outfits a breeze.
