PLANNING THE PERFECT OUTFIT

One of the main questions I'm asked during the planning of sessions is 'what should we wear?' It is always important that you pick something that you feel comfortable and beautiful in! If you need inspiration for color schemes or outfit combos, Pinterest offers some wonderful pointers and tips - we've linked below some highlights to help you plan!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Location also plays an important role in your photos. We want to pick somewhere that goes seamlessly with the vision you have for your photos. For most sessions, we always ask if there is a special location you have in mind that has meaning to you that we can incorporate into photos. We are open to travel anywhere! If you're unsure of what you want for your location, here's a highlight of local locations we regularly use as well as some locations we love outside the area.

This area is one of my personal favorites in Perry County! Featuring several barns, fields, white fencing, cabin, etc. There is also a beautiful pond and creek area with old growth pines (only accessible via 4WD). Lighting is best early in the morning and evenings.
