Please take note that all sessions are weather permitting. Lindsey specializes in natural light photography and weather plays an important roll in natural light photography. Overcast days can change the affects of your images and Lindsey wants the best quality for each one of you. If by chance your session does need to be rescheduled, we will work together to make sure we reschedule a date that works for you and Lindsey. Lindsey leaves flexibility in her schedule so that once you book your session you get the time and quality that you deserve. If, due to weather, we can not work out a rescedule date, you will receive a credit toward a future session.
What to Expect/Wear
During our session you can expect a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I want you to feel at ease and enjoy yourself during our time together. I like to get to know my clients and capture their true personalities. With families and children you can expect both posed shots and candids
Please expect to take breaks if infants and small children are involved. Infants often need breaks to nurse or feed and just get some love from mom and dad. Toddlers sometimes have meltdowns and don’t want to cooperate. That is okay! This is expected with children of this age and this is the norm with sessions with small children. I know..I have one myself!
With small children it is a good idea to bring their favorite snack and/or toy(s) if we’re meeting at an outdoor location. Sometimes the best shots are of your child being natural and playing with mom, dad or siblings. They also come in handy if your toddler has a meltdown and just needs a break to play and let the mood pass.
With newborns you might want to have a change of clothing as it is almost impossible to avoid accidents such as spit up or getting wet with a naked baby. So, don’t worry, this too is expected and I will have several blankets on hand for infant sessions to swap in/out. Make sure to bring the wet wipes and diapers. Newborn sessions typically last three hours, so please plan accordingly. Parents, I suggest dressing in layers if it is a cool day so you can peel away the layers if you get warm (trust me, you will!). If parents and/or siblings would like to participate in the newborn session, we will get those photos taken care of first, so please let me know if you plan on participating.
Here are a few suggestions for what to wear/bring for your session…
-nude is best
-fun hats & headbands
-a simple onesy if you have a favorite
-For mom, a simple black or white tank, short
-sleeved shirt or tube top is perfect. Simple is best, avoid patterns.
-For dad, a black or white t-shirt. For those dads that are comfortable bearing their chest please do because these can make for some of the most precious images with father and child.
-denim jeans (maternity jeans or an old pair that you can button down or unzip for photos)
-basic tank top
-flirty sun dress
-white button down blouse
-bathing suit top and fun skirt (if the weather is warm)
-just remember, simple goes a long way
-blocks that spell baby’s name
-special items you would like to be photographed with
Families and Children
-accessories, such as headbands, scarves, jewelry, jackets and hats can really add to your look
-avoid all white or all black color combos
-Avoid matching outfits, but rather try to find outfits that compliment each other
-Avoid clothing with logos and busy patterns that will distract
-Color! Splashes of color really make your photos pop!
-dress up shirts
-striped or patterned stockings/tights
-fun, flirty dress
– if you have fun props, such as antique family items or items with special meaning you’d like included, please feel free to bring them
My philosophy is quality over quantity. I value the client/photographer relationship and choose to keep my bookings limited each month. So that every client experiences the best in customer service and receives their prints on time.
Morning and late afternoon weekend sessions are available, as well as a limited number of weekdays. Once yours session is scheduled, I’ll consult with you via e-mail or phone about the details of the shoot (location, time, clothing suggestions etc.) Deposits as well as Session fees are due before the shoot begins.
Sessions can take place pretty much anywhere. Possibilities include your own home, rural settings, urban areas & Parks. Feel free to share your ideas or allow me to suggest some creative places.
