PLANNING YOUR LOVE AT HOME SESSION
I am so excited to help you embrace the extraordinary in your ordinary and document you as unique, emotional beings put on this earth to find each other. I'll be encouraging you to snuggle up and get close, and I’ll give you playful directions as opposed to putting you in uncomfortable poses and looking directly at the camera.
CALM THE NERVES
Feeling nervous? Bring out the booze! Go for a beer before your session or bring your favourite bottle of wine to open and share during your session.
WHAT TO WEAR
You are more than welcome to bring multiple options with you and get dressed at the location. That way I can help you decide what will work best given your location and the weather that day. I am here to help every step of the way so feel free to text or email me photos of outfits ahead of time!
Keep it casual. So many people thing they need to dress up for their session. I challenge you to pick out clothing that you normally wear and love, that way you will be as comfortable and true to you as possible. We want these photos to genuinely represent your unique selves.
Tones. Tones. Tones. Earthy and neutral tones are less distracting, look amazing in any location, and compliment my photography style perfectly. Think cream, tan, camel, green, navy, black, brown, rust, etc.
Go for comfort. Make sure you feel comfortable in your clothing; it will show on your faces.
Hair + Makeup. How can you not feel beautiful when you’ve had your best features highlighted? Hair loose and natural will flow beautifully and ensure you don’t look too made up. If you get your makeup professionally done, keep it as natural to how you apply it daily and definitely go with false lashes (they look incredible on camera).
Go with the flow. We want to create movement wherever we can - this goes for dresses, long jackets or kimonos. Fabric that can flow and move is ideal and wind is our friend!
Compliment each other but don't be matching. Try and stick to neutral and muted colours.
earthy tones and neutrals
boots or blundstones for him
neons or brights colours
plain white shirts
stiff, restricting fabrics (stiff clothing means stiff photos)
Following these tips will ensure you receive the photos that you dream of!
