Thinking about a summer family session? Summer gives us such beautiful and bright colors: with outfits, flowers, natural lighting, props, etc. We also know it can definitely get hot and uncomfortable out there too. So here are five ways you can make sure your summer family session goes off without a hitch!
We are always ready to help you with any questions, thoughts, ideas regarding your family sessions. The more answers we come up with together, the smoother your entire session will go. This just means – more fun for everyone – and we’re the lucky ones that get to capture those special moments for you!
Now that your family session or senior session is complete, it’s time to decide where you are going to put your photos! Read through this guide before your viewing appointment with Amanda to help with ideas on what to do with your images!
Large Portrait: Hanging one large portrait draws attention to a focal point in the room, like a fireplace or above the couch and sets a more formal tone. Large portraits are ideal for life changing events or milestones that capture the true essence of that time. It makes a grand statement but with a minimalistic approach.
Collection: Great for showcasing multiple images, like a family session. A collection is absolutely ideal for smaller or narrow spaces like a staircase or hallway where the images follow the eye and can be looked at up close.When hanging photos on your wall (framed, metal, or canvas) you can choose to hang a group of photos in a collage to change it up.
You can send us a photo of any room where we use an amazing program that allows us to custom design your wall art. This is a great tool for us – and You – to visualize sizes and a custom designed layout to best fit the room!
Compare the two rooms below to see what type of look you might be going for!
It’s almost time for your session and you are trying to decide on a location… Here are some things you’ll want to think about:
1. Keep in mind the décor of your home. Is your personal style bright and bold but your home is more vintage themed? It’s not ideal to have bright colors on a canvas on your wall because it doesn’t go with your rustic décor. Make sure you coordinate your outfits and locations to match the décor style of your home. You also will need to coordinate the colors with the walls of your house so they don’t clash!
2. If you have a rustic home, studio portraits don’t typically look good unless you put them in vintage type frames to make them fit in more.
3. If you have a more modern home, studio photos will more than likely be your best option.
4. You can also choose to have a lifestyle session done inside your home. We will come to your house and take photos of your family in your own personal environment. These are beautiful and will look great in your house because they match perfectly!

So you’re thinking about your senior session? You’ve come to the right place! This post is all about the various types of senior sessions we offer.
Nature Outdoors– Long walks, picnics, watching movies on the lawn are some of your favorite past times. A cozy sweater, jeans and your favorite pair of Doc Martens are your go-to when heading out of the house. Environmental responsibility and ethics are driving forces in your decisions and you value human and animal rights equally.
Studio Vintage– Classic, gorgeous style suits you best. You value timeless fashion. In your daily life order is key, efficiency, organization, good manners, good taste, and control. Couture fashion never goes out of style- and neither do you.
Color Flash– You’re dramatic, artistic and always looking for something unique to try. You value success, prestige, travel, independence, risk-taking, and innovation. Your motto is ‘Be Strong, Be Brave, Be Kind.’
Animals– For you snuggling furry animals is all you need to feel cozy and warm. There’s something magical about how all animals respond to your nurturing personality. You don’t have a care in the world as long as you’re spending time curled up on the couch, hot tea in hand, kitty on your lap and dog at your feet.
Downtown/Night – The hustle of the city is what gives you energy. Bright lights, music clubs, and social parties are your thing. Being different is how you live your life- You love what you love- no matter what the current styles and trends are.
Smoke Bomb-You aren’t afraid of social attention- and actually flourish when you’re in the social spotlight. You appreciate beauty, unstructured activities and variety. Your favorite things to enjoy are interesting and unusual people, sights, textures and sounds. As an individual you prefer to work in unstructured situations and use your creativity and imagination in every aspect of life….decorating your bedroom to choosing your prom dress to how you spend your valuable free time.
Snowy Winter- You value your individuality and value artistic activities, alternative lifestyles, and expressing your unique identity. You love to daydream about traveling and, in real life, prefer to go to off-beat destinations. Snow is soft, ever changing and simply beautiful…just like you.
