PLAN

•FIND AN OUTFIT FOR YOUR PICKIEST PERSON FIRST THEN PLAN EVERYONE ELSE'S OUTFITS AROUND THAT.

•MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS COMFORTABLE IN WHAT THEY ARE WEARING BY TRYING IT ON BEFOREHAND. KIND OF LIKE A DRESS REHEARSAL. 

•AVOID BEING TOO MATCHING. DIFFERENT COLORS AND PATTERNS HELP BREAK UP EACH INDIVIDUAL IN YOUR IMAGE.

•IF YOU PLAN TO DO SOMETHING NEW WITH YOUR HAIR, MAKEUP, ETC... DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE DAY BEFORE. 

•IF THERE ARE SPECIFIC POSES YOU ARE WANTING, UTILIZE OUR SHARED PINTEREST BOARD TO COMMUNICATE THAT TO ME. DON'T HAVE ONE, NO WORRIES, WE CAN CREATE ONE TODAY!

REST

•GET EVERYONE'S OUTFITS LAID OUT AND READY TO GO THE NIGHT BEFORE. THIS WILL HELP DAY OF NOT BE AS CHAOTIC.

•I KNOW YOU ARE SUPER EXCITED, AS AM I, BUT TRY YOUR HARDEST TO GET AS MUCH REST AS POSSIBLE LEADING UP TO YOUR SESSION. 

•IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN ATTENDING WITH YOU, KEEP IN MIND THEIR TYPICAL REST SCHEDULE. IF NAPS USUALLY HELP THEIR MOOD THEN ENCOURAGE ONE THE DAY OF.

PREPARE

•TIME TO PREP YOURSELF FIRST. IF YOU ARE MOM, MOST LIKELY YOU USUALLY RUN AROUND MAKING SURE THAT EVERYONE ELSE IS READY. THAT IS IMPORTANT, BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU FEEL GREAT FOR YOUR SESSION TOO. LEAVE ENOUGH TIME FOR ANY TOUCH UPS NEEDED AFTER HELPING EVERYONE ELSE. 

•PACK A SMALL SNACK TO HAVE ON HAND FOR DURING OR AFTER YOUR SESSION. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU OR YOUR KIDS MAY NEED A LITTLE PICK ME UP. PLEASE TRY TO AVOID ANYTHING THAT WILL STAIN YOUR FINGERS, FACE OR CLOTHES.

•MAKE SURE TO BRUSH AND FLOSS. WE WANT TO CAPTURE THOSE BEAUTIFUL PEARLY WHITES.

•PLEASE TRY TO CLEAN OFF ANY DIRTY FACES BEFORE YOU ARRIVE. MY CAMERA WILL CAPTURE IT ALL. 

RELAX

•ONCE EVERYONE IS READY FOR OUR TIME TOGETHER, TAKE A DEEP BREATH. I UNDERSTAND THAT PREPARING FOR FAMILY PICTURES CAN BE A DAUNTING TASK, BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT YOU ALL ARRIVE READY TO ENJOY EACH OTHER'S COMPANY. 

•TRY NOT TO STRESS ABOUT ALL THE LITTLE THINGS. I PROMISE NO MATTER WHAT, EVERYTHING WILL COME TOGETHER AND WE WILL CAPTURE SOME AMAZING MOMENTS. 

•I WILL COME PREPARED WITH SOME FUN PROMPTS AND AM WELL VERSED WITH DIRECTING THOSE I HAVE THE PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. DON'T WORRY SO MUCH ABOUT WHAT TO DO DURING YOUR SESSION, REMEMBER WE HAVE PLANNED FOR YOUR FAMILY SPECIFICALLY.
