1. Location, location, location
Think about where you'd like to have your photos taken. If these are senior photos, maybe you'd like to take photos on your college campus. For engagement photos, maybe you'd want to go to the park bench where you first said "I love you."
Since I only shoot with natural light, outdoor locations will be your best bet. I shoot during the wee hours of the morning or close to sunset to capture the most beautiful, buttery light I can, so keep that in mind too as you think of where you'd like to have your photos taken.
2. What'll you wear?
Oh, this is a fun part. Most sessions I offer give us enough time for you to bring along a couple of your favorite outfits, so think about clothes that make you feel comfortable and happy. You'll want to make whatever you bring along is something you can move around comfortably in. If you're into heels, you may want to bring along a pair of comfy shoes you can slip on while we walk around chasing the best light.
3. Who's coming with you?
You can totally do a photo session alone with no problem — I don't bite! But if you're nervous in front of the camera, think about bringing along a friend, family member or significant other who can make you smile, and they can join you for a few photos as well. You can also have a pet come with you — if you bring along your pup, you'll also want to bring along treats and someone to help us hold your pet in between photo spots.
