Can you help us with planning?
Absolutely! It's my pleasure to plan with you, locations, timing, clothing, make up, hair and accessories, along with recommending what to bring (snacks for kids) time of day for the right light, or colors to match your business branding . We will ZOOM or chat to plan and cover everything you'll need to know, so that our shoot can be a great success! Please leave your day open for prep to make sure you can make the time and effort needed for you look your best.
What should I wear?
What looks good on you. I can provide guidance on what clothing photographs best. I have wardrobe available at my studio to borrow for babies, and we can plan some of your wardrobe during your pre-consultation. Don't worry, styling your family for your session is fun! You'll want to choose either colors that suit you, your business colors, flattering necklines and suitable jewelry. Businesses can wear brand logos: families must avoid wearing logos. I will go into this in detail to help you decide everything right for you! Bring your hairbrush and make up along, a couple clothing changes or spares for you and family, so you'll never be short of anything.

Retouching V Editing?
Creating a file other than a RAW file & cropping, sharpening, changing colors or exposure, fixing backgrounds and sizing is part of EDITING. Any number of other artistic processes to make you look better: fixing shapes, skin, teeth, eyes, hair etc. is RETOUCHING. Applying filters, presets, actions, and overlays are further advanced editing tools.
I will work to give you fantastic customer service... including pre booking info calls, pre shoot planning, and meeting with you post shoot to share the images and help you select. I will even curate a wall gallery of Fine Art prints for you if you so wish - and get it printed at the best lab in the USA
