— Helpful Session Info—
Below are a few helpful tips and answers to some commonly asked questions! Please don't hesitate to contact Chelsea with any other questions you may have.
— What to Wear—
Always plan for weather appropriate clothing. Coordinating vs Matchy-Matchy is recommended with the fewer patterns the better. Logos are discouraged as is super bold and neon colors as they can cast their colors onto skin tones negatively. My personal favorite outfit choices always end up being more neutral, timeless colors in earthy tones as they photograph beautifully without distracting from the subjects. Accessories and layers look great and don't forget to wear clean shoes! A full clothing guide is sent to all of my booked clients along with sample outfit inspiration to help you choose your own outfits.
— Cranky Kiddos—
Kids will be kids and expectations should be realistic. I always do my best to get and keep kiddos attention and to get those perfect smiles that we all love, however a lot of the best moments end up being when they're just doing their thing, exploring and playing without eyes on the camera. To help do all you can to ensure their happiness and better attitudes, ensure that they've had a nap should our session be closer to their bedtime and that they're well fed beforehand. A lot of people like to plan for dinner after the session, however kids (and dads!) always seem to be a lot happier if they've eaten beforehand.
— Bad Weather—
Living in Idaho, we all know the unpredictability of the weather. To ensure that your photos are nothing short of spectacular, flexibility is requested to ensure the best possible outcome from your session which may include altering the session start time or rescheduling at the photographers discretion.
— Bumps & Bruises—
Bumps, bruises, acne and scrapes are all temporary nuisances and while I don't ever want to change someones appearances, those little accidents or temporary marks can be removed when possible so that you're only left with the happiest of memories - not a constant reminder of that crazy "I have plans" zit that we all wake up with at the worst times ;)
— Session Length—
Since we plan our times to shoot during that gorgeous golden hour of the evening, late arrivals will cut into the session time. Session length is dependent on a number of things, however is ultimately up to the photographers discretion, shooting until I am sure that we have captured enough beautiful images for your purchased collection.
