Need your images sooner? If you want them sooner, you can have them in your hands in 5 business days for a $200 rush fee. The rush option is only available upon request, so let me know as soon as possible so I can make sure I don’t have an out of state wedding or anything booked during those days.
This session is a candid style session designed to capture your family’s personality. These sessions are relaxed and full of laughter, and often stylized around a shared family event (like playing a game, baking cookies, watermelon carving, etc). This session is 95% people interacting with each other and only 5% looking at the camera and smiling.
What is the best time to take photos?
The 2 hours after sunrise and the 2 hours before sunset.
Where can we change clothes?
In your car. It saves the most time, so if you don’t feel comfortable with this, we can drive to the nearest changing area (although it will take time out of the session).
TIPS ON WHAT TO WEAR
I offer personal wardrobe styling assistance through Style & Select for every session. You will receive an access code after booking.
It’s good to keep color coordination in mind, but perfectly matching is not necessary. In fact, the photos will be more dynamic if you don’t exactly match.
In terms of number of outfits, usually more than 2 becomes a handful with kids, but if parents want to have one outfit and then kids have a couple of changes, that works great as well.
NEWBORN & MATERNITY PORTRAITS
What is the best timing for these photos?
Maternity: 30-32 weeks (~2 mos. to delivery)
Newborn: 4-10 days after delivery.We try and schedule Newborn Sessions around day 4-5, though if the baby arrives early, we can wait until day 10.
What is the best time to take photos?
Maternity: 2 hours after sunrise, or 2 hours before sunset
Newborn: Usually 11 am
WHAT TO PREPARE
Maternity: 3 outfits will suffice
Newborn: 5 little outfit options tends to work great
THINGS TO CONSIDER: nEWBORN SESSIONS
If you want photos of him/her in the nursery, make sure it is completed!
I do not provide any props, so if you want to use any hats, blankets, baskets, props, ask around or you can find some amazingly creative ideas through etsy or pinterest!
It works great if you have a small space heater for those little naked shots.
If you want naked baby shots, keep in mind they may pee or poo on your household items or yourself.
We usually have 1-2 time outs for nursing or feeding. So, no stress! Anytime he/she gets fussy, we just take a few moments to get the little one all happy again.
This session can include senior photos and headshots.
How many outfits should I bring?
Five outfits will work perfectly!
Boudoir photos are the perfect wedding day, birthday, Valentine’s Day, or anniversary present for your fiancé or husband. The session is designed to capture classy, beautiful, and sexy photographs of you wearing lingerie-style attire for your husband’s eyes only.
Where do we take these photographs?
90% of these sessions happen in a hotel and the remaining are done in the comfort of your home or a home of a trusted friend/family member. I strongly suggest renting a hotel room. There are many hotels in the Fort Worth and Dallas area. My personal favorite are the Ashton and Omni hotel in Fort Worth, the NYLO in Las Colinas, or the W hotel in Dallas. The best priced is the NYLO. Some brides were able to reserve a room in advance for $70. Contact me for assistance in reserving the room.
Please Note: If your session is outside of the Fort Worth area, an “Out of Office” fee applies (ask about current rates when booking).
What to expect
This session is best described as fun. I suggest for you to bring a friend that can help you feel more at ease, music that has good beats, and possibly a glass of wine. We end up laughing throughout much of the session, being silly, but all the while getting stunning images.
When should I schedule this session?
Photos have a one month turn around so you want as much time as you can afford to get your prints made for the wedding or special day! So at least 1.5 months before the day you need them.
How do I order a boudoir book?
Your session photos have a 1 month turn around time and then the book is an additional month. So if you want these by a certain date, make sure it is planned 2 months before that big day. Either I can design the book using the images from your “faves” folder email me a list of your favorite 20-30 images.
How do I order prints?
To save you the embarrassment of establishments (ex. Walmart) refusing to print your photos, I would suggest mpix.com Their rates are competitive and their final product is quality.
WHAT TO BRING
5 outfits is a great start! Outfits with more details tend to look more complete. By details, I mean outfits with lace, push-up bras, panty hose, corsets, and always major high heels. Darker make-up than usual (fake eye-lashes are always amazing) and bigger tresses add to the look.
