There are usually many questions regarding the preparation for your shoot. Here are some of the basics. If we are doing a session other than a newborn session, outdoor locations usually work best. It is here that will create the most relaxing, non-forced photos that will capture your families true personalities. There are plenty of great locations to choose from including parks, farms, graffitied buildings, old buildings, city streets, etc. We can turn any location into an artistic shoot. Shooting early morning and late afternoon (about 1 hour before sunset) work the best for lighting purposes to reduce harsh shadows.
Typically your shoot will last an hour but if you have kids the time frame may be a little bit longer. Please remember that kids are kids and they may get bored or tired so short breaks will be necessary. These breaks can often times end up producing your favorite shots so no need to be frustrated if you feel your child is “not cooperating” because Bethany will always be ready to capture that perfect moment!
