tips & ideas

Locations I LOVE!

 The Grotto (In Payson Canyon)
 Payson Lakes
 Utah Lake State Park
 Rock Canyon Park
 Orchard at the Utah State Mental Hospital ($20 photo pass fee)

These are some examples but I love to try new gorgeous places!

What do I wear?

These are some suggestions I believe may help out but you are at your discretion to choose what fits your family best!

 Choose a color palette for everyone to match to. Such as emerald green, navy blue, and white. Color choices are best limited to 2-4 options. For example you could add gray to the above palette if you need to expand choices for everyone.

 Make sure everything is clean and smooth, to ensure a polished look! Wrinkles or spots in clothing can detract from the eye looking at the beautiful family wearing it.

 Neutral styles are best, as they help a photo look timeless!

 Above all, you want to be comfortable! If you aren't comfortable, it will show and you'll have a rough time enjoying your session. I want to have fun with you!

Again, it is completely up to you what you would like to wear in YOUR photos! I understand every family has their own style and personality, and these tips are just to help if you are having a hard time figuring out what works best in most photography. 

Also, please let me know when you have specific colors in mind, so that I may better plan what location would fit best and any props I might bring along!

Other Tips

Please make sure your child or children are well-rested and not hungry during your session. I want to love your cute family while we play with creating your photos and kids have a tough time enjoying themselves and letting their sweet personalities shine if they're cranky!

If you chose a location I have not shot at before, it is your responsibility to find out if it is a good place for photography, any fees associated with photography there, and if the area is appropriate (i.e. blooms in the Spring, colors in the Fall, etc.) for the photos you are wanting. If we need to reschedule due to your lack of planning, there will be a small rescheduling fee added to your costs. If you choose a place I have recommended, I can tell you what to expect from the area and how it'll work with the look you are hoping for! 

 I do understand that problems happen and unexpected situations come up! If you need to reschedule, I am happy to find you a new time or date, as long as you contact me at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled time. Later than that, I may attach a rescheduling fee, as I have other obligations I may be rescheduling for your shoot. Any rescheduling due to sickness, weather, or other unforeseeable or unpreventable events, will not have a rescheduling fee attached.
