Mini Session Recommendations

– Always start with mom’s wardrobe. Mom, make sure you wear something you absolutely love!! If you don’t like what you’re wearing, chances are, you won’t love your photos.

– Lay your outfit choices out to get an idea of what it will look like together.

– Wear clothing that you’re comfortable in.

– Layers (whether it be a belt, jewelry piece, cardigan, etc.) are always great and add to your photos!!

– We’re totally great with colorful clothes that compliment each other and we recommend avoiding “matchy” clothes (ie. white tops and khaki bottoms).

– Moms, apply your makeup in natural light for best results. Also, it’s usually recommended to go slightly brighter/heavier on your cheeks, eyes and lips since makeup tends to look toned down in photos.

– Make sure everyone is on the same page. Meaning, if you’re going to dress casual, have everyone in the same casual style and vice-versa, if you’re dressing more formal.

– We love patterns (plaid, stripes, etc.) BUT be careful not to overdo it (and no big logos)! Make sure you put some solid clothing pieces into your families wardrobe.

_ We generally recommend to avoid solid black.

-Here’s a pinterest board we LOVE and could maybe help you on your selection:

– Come ready to have fun!! We’re all about laughing and making sure the shoot is enjoyable for everyone!!

– Lastly, please, please don’t be late. We have to run on a super tight schedule, especially since the sun sets early, so please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your start time.
