What to expect and tips from your photographer:
It is important for me to know what is important to you. Please provide me with a list of must have photos.
To ensure that you can be completely relaxed and not be distracted it is important that I have you alone for approx. 30 – 45 minutes after your ceremony.
I advise all brides to have professional hair and makeup done. It will make a huge difference and your photos. I can recommend outstanding hair and makeup Artists that I am working with.
Drown the gown and trash the dress photo sessions are not meant to be the day of the wedding and should take place the next day. Even if you don’t plan a reception. If you don’t want to ruin your treasured dress but also don’t want to miss out on those unconventional photos I advise you to buy a second-hand dress or buy another gown to be used just for those photos.
Newborn, Baby, Children and Family:
All photography will be done at your home or outside locations of your choice.
Newborn photography is time-consuming and somewhat unpredictable. Newborns will have to be posed and therefore ideally be fed, happy and sleepy before we start the photo session. For best results, the baby should not be older than 10 days. I recommend to contact me in the last quarter of your pregnancy with the approx. delivery date. We will bring photo props, lighting and everything else on location.
Post delivery photos when you are still in the hospital are available upon request in the Tampa Bay Area. Please contact me for pricing.
Children and Toddlers are best photographed outside in a park or on the beach. We have photo props and some clothing (hats, scarfs, dresses etc.) available, but you should also bring 3 outfits and their favorite toys to the session.
Family photos are also best done outside. I recommend uniform colors. Probably the most used and easiest to accomplish are blue jeans and white shirts, blouses or t-shirts.
Senior, Engagement, Maternity and all other Portraiture:
I offer a combined package for senior photos for up to 6 participants or single photo sessions. All photos will be taken on one location and include photos with 2 different outfits of your choice.
Engagement photos can be booked in combination with a wedding photo package at a discounted price. Engagement photos have to be scheduled at least 4 months prior the wedding date. If you have a special proposal planned I am certainly available to capture that moment.
Maternity photography is best done in the last quarter of your pregnancy. Depending on location we will give you tips on what to wear and what to bring to the photo shoot. Certainly, Daddy and siblings are welcome to join the session. If you pre-book a newborn photo session in combination with a maternity photo shoot we will give you a discounted combo package price.
We provide Boudoir photography in the comfort of your home or any private location you feel comfortable. Our Boudoir photography is tasteful and artful. Our Boudoir sessions are fun, relaxed and we will pose you to look your best. The Boudoir photo package includes a professional hair and makeup Artist and is highly recommended for a flawless look. You can also book a Boudoir session in combination with a getting ready photo session on your wedding day.
Please feel free to contact me with questions you may have.
