Let's just say it:  family portraits, senior portraits, and especially large family events like weddings can be stressful.  I'm here to take that stress away. I will discuss your goals for and expectations of the photo session.   I believe that the very best sessions come from relaxed people who are having a great time. 

People often ask me what to wear.  My best advice is to wear clothes that make you look great and are comfortable.  Obviously, “comfortable” is different for everyone depending on his or her family, personality, or the type of event, so I’ll be happy to discuss clothing options with you before our session. (I often tell families to arrange the clothes on the floor and text me a photo.) Family members or siblings do not have to match, just complement one another.  Busy patterns often take attention away from the person wearing them.
