HI FRIENDS

I am so excited to spend another holiday season with you! If you are new here, thank you so much for your interest in my sessions. Every year I offer a variety of options to help clients create updated family portraits for sending out holiday cards during the best season of the year! This year I am so incredibly excited to launch sessions, as a lot of thought and planning went into each available option. 

Below you can find more important and useful information to maintain a smooth day and create some magic! From styling, to arrival, to directions, and more. Please also feel free to text me directly with any information you may have prior to booking your time. I would be happy to chat and answer any questions!

(908) 601-7427 

Okay y'all know I have never made anything simple in my life lol! So naturally I have multiple options available this year for you to choose from. If you decide to book more than one shoot, you will automatically receive 10% off during your final payment. Below are the 3 options available for this year. The indoor options are only one day (for now unless enough interest is shown). The outdoor option has 2 available days. Please be aware the outdoor options are in December as the Farm opens their season at that time. If you are looking to send cards please take into account 1 week of processing & editing time. 

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED PRIOR TO SCHEDULING

STYLING

 

Colors - So many clients reach out to ask about colors! And I am so excited to chat about outfits with you. Here are some suggestions of color schemes that fit with our styled look. Keep in mind what you will be using the photos for. You may want a more neutral look if you are hanging these on the wall in your home, or you may choose rustic Christmas colors to showcase your outfits on your Christmas cards. 

Nails & Hands - Make sure nails are trimmed and clean. 

 

Jewelry - Make sure wedding & engagement rings are cleaned prior to our shoot for close ups! 

Hair - For kids, avoid tight ponytails, which could create a "balding" effect in the images. 

Makeup - If any day calls for a little dramatic look, its photoshoot day! Your look should be a bit bolder than your everyday daily look. Stay away from the smoky eye which can make eyes appear sunken and dark in images.

Below are links that can help you style your outfits

Rescheduling:

Q. My plans changed, can I reschedule the mini session or receive my money back?
