Belly Bumps Kids Seniors Family Boudoir Models/Commercial Holiday

A huge thank you to all of the 2018 graduating seniors that I get to work with this year!!!

I am completely booked for all senior sessions for 2018 and 2019 graduating seniors!!!!!!!

All sessions include a link to your own, private, online gallery where you can view and download your high resolution images. You may share the gallery link with family and friends.  A print release is included in your gallery. You can have prints, canvas', mouse pads, coffee mugs, holiday cards, etc. etc. made as you wish, at the lab of your choice. Or, through me, you can order reasonably priced, high quality products such as mounted prints ready for framing, as well as canvas wraps, standout mounts, etc.

You can post your photos on social media such as facebook and instagram, etc.

OLDER BABIES/KIDS (I am no longer photographing newborns, due to the difficulty in scheduling.  I apologize.)

We will schedule your session around your child's nap time. I need a well-rested, happy kid.  Bring a good assortment of clothes. I like neutrals, like greys as well as color and texture, vintage is fun, too. It is sometimes a good idea to have 2 people for the sessions involving crawlers and toddlers. A "wrangler" and an "entertainer"  For example: mom "wrangles" the child putting them back in place, as they often like to try to escape. And dad/grandma/aunt "entertains" over my shoulder.

HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR GIRLS

The first thing we do is schedule your shoot date and time. I will need info such as your name, school, email address, cell phone number.  If you have an iphone, I would like to have a short FaceTime chat with you a day or two before the shoot to talk about the style of photos that you like and if you have any ideas of your own. I would also like to check out any outfits that you have picked out.

You can either show up ready to shoot, or I offer hair and/or make-up for $35 each.  If you do your own make-up, make sure that it is very clean.  No cakey mascara or heavy eyeliner.  Lip color looks best when it has a warmer tone, such as peach, as opposed to a pink with a blue undertone.  Refrain from using cream based highlighters.

     MAKE-UP

I offer make-up application for $35. The make-up that I do for senior girls is clean and fresh-faced. If you tell me that you usually wear more eye make-up, for example, then I can apply a little more, then make extra enhancements in the editing process. During the editing process, I can easily enhance/add make-up, but it is very difficult to subtract.

I did the make-up on 99% of the girls on my "Seniors" page. If you would like it done, you show up for your session with a clean face.

     HAIR

I offer hair as well, for $35. About 1/2 of the girls do their own hair because they like it a certain way. If you have longer hair, I like it to be able to have some movement if we are outside or if I put a fan in front of you. I don't worry about it so much...... not like back in my high school days when we used a half-a-can of Aqua Net extra super hold. LOL ! Ask your mom. 

     CLOTHES

My photos tend to have a fashion magazine look to them. Bring a good variety of outfits, shoes and jewelry. You are not going to want to bring anything that is super-dooper trendy. I sometimes put girls in my clothes, because I know what shoots well. I have a ton of clothes (sizes 2 to 9 mostly) and shoes (size 7-8) and jewelry.

     NAILS

Clean and/or polished nails in a pink or neutral color. Your hands and toes will be in your photos.

    TANNING

 A little bit of a healthy glow is ok, but, PLEEEEEEASE do not do a lot of tanning/spray tanning prior to your session. The camera reads a deep tan or burn as screaming orange. Not good.

     BLEMISHES

That's what Photoshop is for. No worries.

    SPORTS

Bring your gear.

HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR BOYS

The first thing we do is schedule your shoot date and time. I will need info such as your name, school, email address, cell phone number.  If you have an iphone, I would like to have a short FaceTime chat with you a day or two before the shoot to talk about the style of photos that you like and if you have any ideas of your own. I would also like to check out any outfits that you have picked out.

OK guys....  This isn't the dentist. I will try to make your session fun. The more you loosen up and take direction, the easier your shoot goes and the more awesome your photos will be. 

     CLOTHES

Try to dig your clothes out from the bottom of the hamper at least one day prior to your shoot.  OK...... that was a joke.  I have a son.... I know the M/O.    ;0)

Seriously though........ bring a good variety of outfits. For example - jeans, shorts, t-shirts, dress shirts/dress pants. Don't be afraid to look at sites like Pinterest/senior boys for clothing inspiration. I have some clothes, as well, for senior boys.

     TANS

A little bit of color is ok, but, PLEEEEEEASE do not get a lot of sun prior to the shoot, especially a sunglasses tan/burn line. Deep tans do not read well to the camera.

     SPORTS

Bring your gear.

BOUDOIR

Here's how it works..... You let me know which boudoir package you would like (so that I can prepare for how many backgrounds I will need).  You can come ready to shoot, or I offer hair and/or make-up at $35 each. You do not need to go out and spend a ton of money on lingerie. Here are some examples of what you can bring: bra and panty set(s), baby dolls, fishnet stockings, stillettos, corsets, boy shorts, etc.  I have several pieces available to wear, as well as shoes (size 7-8) and jewelry.

In the days prior to your session, don't be afraid to practice in the mirror. I kind of need you to "work it" a little.  I will give you plenty of direction during the shoot.

FAMILY

I usually shoot several photos of the whole family as well as individual photos of the kids.  I am not a big fan of matchy-matchy outfits. It's good to stay in the same family of colors, such as jewel tones, or neutrals.  Mixing textures and patterns looks great.
