YOUR SESSION GUIDE
Thank you for entrusting me to take your portraits.
Before the session - Ideas, visions, dreams.
Once I have an idea of what you want to do, I can suggest outfits and locations that would be best to achieve your vision.
Take your time to write your ideas for the photoshoot down. Search the internet for fashion photography or modeling portfolios and pin images you like to pinterest.com or save and email them to me. We will go over them to create the vision for your dream session.
I'll guide you step-by-step ....
So, what happens during the session?
I’ll order the food and bring your own music to which you relax, or dance, and makes you feel relaxed.
Viewing and Ordering
If you are out of town we can schedule a Skype meeting to do online viewing of your images.
The best images will be waiting for you edited, matted in 11 x 14 inch prints. About 30 of them.

I’ll show you other products if you are interested – photo albums, acrylic prints, metal prints, or gallery wraps.
STYLING IS IMPORTANT
Make sure the outfits are comfortable to wear.
However, whatever you bring make sure it is clean and ironed. If your clothes are wrinkled and stained this will show up in the photos.
I can help with styling:
Contact me if you are not sure what to wear. I will consult with you about the look and feel you want for your shoot.
Every client is different and this is what makes each photo shoot unique.
Hydrate: Drink plenty of water prior to the session, to help your skin to glow.
Haircut: If you are considering haircut before the session, do it at least a week before.
Clothing: Choose clothes that fit and compliment you, if you are unsure, consider a stylist.
Food: Bring some snacks, and water.
Directions: Check the directions to the location prior to the session and make sure you know how to get there.
WHAT IS THE BEST LOCATION
In the studio you will have more privacy, I control the light.
On location you will have more variety / backdrops – but we have to consider the light – morning and golden-hour light is the best. Mid-day is the worst.
This is a personal decision each client, the goal of the location is to fit the idea or vision you have in mind.
If you have an idea, or find a photo of what you would like – I will location scout suggest the most interesting spots, and will send you GPS location of the session.
There are many beautiful locations on our beaches, preserves, parks or hills around San Diego county.
WHAT IS THE PHOTO SESSION LENGTH
BEST TIME FOR THE PHOTOSHOOT, GOLDEN HOUR
Keep in mind your child’s nap and eating schedule.
The important factor in photography to consider is light, specifically what is the source and temperature of the light?
In the studio I control the light, thus we can schedule the session based on availability.
On-location (outside) I recommend early morning or late afternoon have warmer light and longer shadows creating dramatic effects.
The best time to schedule a family photography session is the Golden Hour, one hour before the sunset.
Golden Hour .. what is it?
Golden Hour is known among photographers for it’s special warm light qualities. The effects of the golden light present on the subject, the landscape, the sky and over the sea enables myriad of creative possibilities.
We would meet about 1 hours prior to sunset, to leave ample time to get setup, walk to the beach, or park and have a memorable session.
Some of the beach locations are best at low tide, some at high tide. I will balance the Golden Hour with the tides to make sure we choose the right beach, so we have still some sand to walk on.
Please make sure you watch after you and your family’s safety on the beach, and supervise children closely.
