LOCATIONS: (Woodland, Wa / Vancouver, Wa / Portland, Or / Surrounding Areas)
I love shooting in locations with brick, metal, graffiti, anything with texture. Odd places like rustic piles of junk, really can look awesome in photographs. I also love shooting in an open field, or by the river...places with a open country feel. I'm an on-location photographer - and adore shooting in your home and family environment as well.... You can specify your preference for location(s) when you book your session, and if you don't have anything specific in mind, I'll be happy to suggest some great options!
WHAT TO WEAR:
Clothing is so important to a great image. I love color! I recommend wearing layers as much as possible to add interest and texture. Add elements with a texture such as chunky sweaters, clothing with ruffles, buttons, ribbon, & embroidery. Please feel free to bring a couple changes of clothing to the session, I can always help you mix and match!
ACCESSORIZE!! Bring out your funky boots, yellow heels, lace tights, jewelry, blazer, hats, scarves, mittens etc. these type of accessories really can make a simple photograph SO much better. Please try and avoid logos or cartoon characters on your clothing as it distracts from the true subject of the photo.
For family sessions I recommend picking a few colors and sticking to them for the entire family. Matching too much can look a little overdone, the key is to coordinate, not look like clones ;). If you need additional help just ask me, I'd love to give you some additional tips & reccomendations!
