WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT DURING OUR SESSION? This is family time, so expect a few things, especially if you have little kids: hugs, kisses, giggles, and some playtime. Some of the best photos come out of playtime and simply walking around. Keeping kids moving is crucial so they don't fall apart.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR? Coordinate, but don't match. Find a common base color like navy, black, grey or tan and build your other colors from that. Be comfortable, yet wear clothes you want to be seen in if your photos were hanging on on a big canvas on your living wall. Classic and comfortable.
WHERE SHOULD WE MEET? Let's choose a location that has a beautiful backdrops and places for the kiddos to play and run. For my down-county and Montgomery County friends I'm leaning towards the Glenview Mansion if no other events are being held on the premises (their rules, not mine). The grounds are gorgeous, no additional fees and there's parking and a playground, too. Just an idea! If you are in the Damascus area, we'll stay close to home.
SHOULD WE BRING ANYTHING WITH US? I always bring a couple blanket choices for getting low on the ground. But feel free to bring your own blanket. And bring snacks! Eat up before your session so everyone has some energy and are in a good mood. Being hangry is not a good thing
SO YOU LOVE AUTUMN LEAVES. . . DMV area leaves peak the last week of October and first week of November.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS? We will certainly reschedule!
WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMEONE GETS SICK? I want you all to feel your best for your session, so just let me know the morning of if you are under the weather. We can reschedule.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY PHOTOS? This is my busiest time of year and I picked up two extra weddings during October primetime, so I plan to have your photos back to you with in 1-2 weeks. I cut off sessions in early December so I have time to edit and deliver your images in time for you to turn around your holiday cards and photo print presents.
CAN WE BRING THE DOG? If you don't, I'll be sad.
