Planning Your Session
Check out our guide below for tips on how to make the most out of your session.
What to Wear
Decide before the shoot what look you're going for. Where in your home will your portraits be displayed? If in a more formal room, be sure everyone's clothing is coordinated to this look. If the room is less formal and more "family" keep this in mind as well.
When coordinating colors for a family, we recommend starting with whoever has the hardest time finding the perfect outfit they love. Find something you love and feel great in, and then pull colors from that to put together a complimentary color scheme for the rest of your family. We've included a few sample color schemes below, but ultimately, this shoot is about YOU and making you feel beautiful. Wear something you love and feel good in, and your confidence will shine through in your photos.

Long, dramatic, flowy dresses are perfect for beach sessions. You're going to be moving, bending, and sitting in various positions during your shoot, and short dresses aren't the most flattering or ideal option for all that movement. Long, flowy, elegant dresses are a great way to add class to your beach photos, while still making sure you'll be comfortable and able to swoop down to hug your babies without worrying about your dress flying up.
