Where is your studio located?
I am located in Platteville, Wisconsin. I am, however, an "on-location" photographer. Basically, this means that the world is my studio. All sessions take place at your home or another location of your choice.
I'm not sure if my house is a good location for portraits. Where else can my session take place?
If the weather is nice, a local park, school campus or other outdoor area can be a fun place for your session. You could also "borrow" someone else's home, maybe a sibling, parents, etc. Another possibility is my "portable studio". All studio-type portraits on my website have been taken in homes and other private spaces. It's very rare, however, that I can't find a beautiful spot in your own home for the photographs. If you would like a consultation about possible locations, please call me.
What should we wear for our portrait session?
Simple clothing is usually best, and comfortable is a must! Make sure all clothing fits well, is clean and in good repair. If the clothing is brand-new, please check to see if fold-lines are visible when worn.
Avoid clothing with logos and distracting patterns.
Keep jewelry simple. It is best to remove watches.
For groups, try to coordinate without being overly "matchy-matchy". Pick a color theme (such as earth-tones or pastels) and choose everyone's outfits from that theme. Avoid bold stripes and patterns. If everyone does not have appropriate shoes, barefoot may be better, especially with outdoor shots.
Feel free to bring changes of clothing, or several different choices per person and I will be happy to help you select which will photograph best.
What if my child is sick on the day of the session?
Please let me know as soon as possible so we can reschedule. Even if your child is in a good mood, runny red noses and teary eyes are hard to hide.
Will my session be rescheduled for bad weather?
Perfect weather is not necessary for beautiful outdoor portraits. Cloudy, overcast days, and even a little rain is usually fine. If the weather is questionable, feel free to call me and we'll make a decision. If I'm not happy with the weather, I may call you as well. if your session needs to be rescheduled, I will fit you in asap.
Indoor sessions will only be rescheduled in the event of bad winter driving conditions.
