Hello & Welcome!
I am so happy you are here.
Today I want to give you the top 7 Tips for Preparing for Your Summer Session that I give all my clients.
You know we're always ready for a hot summer, but are you?
Here are seven ways you can make sure your summer portrait session goes off without a hitch.
We are in South Florida and as you may have heard, our seasons are hot, hotter, hottest, & Hell. lol I know it sounds silly but I wouldn't change it for the world and I have traveled most of the world. I love South Florida crazy weather with all my heart.
1. Dress appropriately. Summer means hot and humid weather, which can lead to sticky bodies. Choose breathable, lightweight fabrics that don't weigh you down. As for shoes, sweet flats or bare feet are a great option, specially if we are doing a Family Beach Session.
2. Think about your hair. If you or a family member's hair reacts to humidity in a negative way, opt for a hairstyle that won't leave you feeling insecure. For example, a pretty braid or an updo is a good choice. Or you can wear a headscarf, or use a little extra product to keep frizz at bay. Also, be thoughtful of the wind.
3.Pack necessities. When packing your photo shoot necessities, we recommend bringing the following items: Lots of water for all, a snack for sustenance, sunscreen, umbrella for shade, water mister, makeup touchup & a change of clothes, just in case.
4. Get creative with session ideas. Summer offers a host of activities that lend themselves to amazing photo sessions. For example, there's the fair (elephant ear, anyone?), the circus, festivals, and plenty more. I'd be more than happy to shoot a really creative session with you!
5. Think about head to toe details. For example, if you're wearing flip-flops or open toed shoes, you want to have manicured feet. If it's really breezy, a hat or scarf can keep things under control.
6. Rest assured knowing I won't let you overheat. Sometimes it's hard just to walk outside when it's scorching outside, but know that we're going to have an amazing shoot. We'll spend lots of time in the shade, dive into the cool A/C when we can, and I will never push your family into staying longer than they can or want.
7. Incorporate props. Outdoor summer shoots are loaded with imagery as is, but we can always incorporate a few props into the mix. Vintage step stools in a field look gorgeous, as do blankets, balloons, and even visually striking treats (lollipops, ice cream, etc.).
Most importantly, Summer Photo Shoots are fun! I want you to remember them as more than a shoot, I want it to be an experience!
