Now that you’ve booked your session, we have a few tips for you to help you get ready for your close up. Follow these guidelines the weeks leading up to your session and we’ll take care of the rest!
Most of all, just get ready to have an amazing time. It's my job to help you look your best & this is your Senior year so lets capture the best of who you are now!!!
I get so excited for every birth that I have scheduled to capture. about a month before baby's due date, I start making plans to have my sitters arranged, phone gets turned up and put under my pillow at night, I make sure I have no plans that can't be rescheduled and then I wait. I received this call around 10pm that the mother had been admitted, so my on call sitter (my awesome mother) came over to spend the night with my kiddos. Around midnight the new mother to be was at 7 cm. So I made the 5 min drive to the hospital and spent the night. Sweet baby Luke arrived that morning after a long labor. What a beautiful, emotional time for this new family and I had the privilege of witnessing and capturing these beautiful images that they can cherish for a lifetime.
If you are a professional it is likely that at some point you will need to have your portrait made. Whether you are an executive, real estate agent, makeup artist, stylist, small business owner, photographer, etc., it is important that people see who it is that they are working with. I myself am guilty of not having an updated picture, which is about to change very soon!
I had the pleasure of photographing my hair stylist/makeup artist the other day. She is a truly beautiful lady. I have known and worked with her on various projects for about 5 years now. My goal for her session was for her to not only have images that she could use for social media, business cards, press, etc. but so that she could also show off her own work as a stylist/MUA. I love everything about this session & I hope that you enjoy this series as well. ~Shana
I received the call at 5am on a Saturday morning, that this was the day. Mom's water broke when they arrived at the hospital so she was definitely coming soon. We waited a few hours, then the Dr. sent everyone away...not long after we were notified that the baby's heart rate had dropped and they would have to do an emergency C-section. Thankfully Mom and baby are now doing just fine. Though I wasn't able to capture the actual birth, a very lovely birth story was captured.
A bit of Summer fun at the river for this group, the summer before their Senior year. Class of 2017
Toasting to the beginning of Senior Year....With a Coke of course :)
