Thanks for booking your portrait or headshot session!  Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your session with me.

Together we can decide the best location for your photos.  I have a few places in mind that work well.  Being new to Austin, I’m hoping to explore more every week and add to that list.  That being said, if you have any places in mind, let me know and I’ll be happy to go scout them out ahead of time. I’m also open to shooting indoors.  I have a few portable lights and some backdrops.

Time of day is important!  While shooting outdoors, it’s important to keep in mind that mid-day is the most unflattering time for portraits, as the sun is very high in the sky and will cast unwanted shadows.  So I prefer to shoot in the morning or early evening when the sun is not so harsh.

If your wondering what to wear for your photoshoot, make sure you are comfortable and wear something that reflects who you are. Make sure to stay consistent with color tones and patterns.  Be careful with patterns that are too distracting. Graphics and fluorescent colors are also not a great choice.  Graphics tend to go out of style and fluorescent colors can draw too much attention and reflect into faces.  Feel free to bring a few different clothing options.

It is important to arrive on time to the session, especially since lighting is usually a factor.  Make sure to plan for traffic or parking.  Early is better than late.

So that I can be better prepared for the photoshoot, please fill out this form.

I’m looking forward to our photoshoot!  Feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
