You've got your family session all booked and planned. Now what? Time to pick out what to wear! Choosing outfits can be overwhelming and it's hard to know where to start. Here are some great tips and tricks to make your Little Mother Photography session the best possible.
Stick to solids. Patterns and graphics can take away from your smiling faces. Consider dressing the family in solid colors instead.
Matching colors is a great idea. Putting everyone in the same color is a good way to make everything look cohesive. Shades of some colors can be difficult to match, so consider matching whites and blacks, or (sometimes better), choose a great accent color. Instead of washing everyone out with a bold color choose a bold color to use as an accent.
Wearing patterns? Don't get too crazy! Buffalo plaid is always nice (in moderation), minimal floral accents are also beautiful.
Leave the hats, sunglasses at home. Don't get too crazy with accessories and things that cover your face. You want your faces to be the focal point of your portraits, these things can be distracting!
I'll always do everything I can to help you look your best. It helps when you do your part too! Planning outfits well in advance helps you to relax and take the pressure off the day of photos. You should enjoy your portrait session experience, and it will help you if you feel and look your best!
You may be surprised to learn photography was not always my passion; it was an accidental direction taken when God put this path in front of me. When I had my children, I fell in love with newborn and child photography. In 2013 my children were 4, 3, and 1. As busy as I was raising a family, I wanted to share my talents with others, so I started Little Mother Photography.
When I became "official" a few close friends and family members started paying me for my services. I am forever grateful for those individuals who took a leap of faith and hired me when I first started. Some are still clients to this day! Others have moved away and I love keeping up with them on social media.
I reinvested every penny those first few years. I upgraded equipment, bought props and accessories, invested in a studio space, paid for a website, and paid for classes and training for myself. Each deposit and session fee helped me to reach new milestones and grow.
When I started Little Mother Photography I had no idea how successful it would be. What began as a hobby to make a little money on the side has since become a full-time occupation for me. I love it.
