Updated: Feb 18, 2022

Hi Guys! These are my top tips for a great portrait session! I'm a photographer located just north of Greenville, TX in Wolfe City. I photograph on our 5 acre property as well as around north Texas.

CLOTHES A neutral color scheme is best, but don't be afraid to add a pop of color. Plaids and busy patterns can be distracting from the subject (YOU)!

Be COMFORTABLE - I can't say this enough. Yes, totally look cute! Be sure you are comfortable too. Think about practical things like; if you will need a slip, will your outfit keep you covered if the wind blows, can you sit down in it comfortably, etc.

Coordinate outfits but don't be too matchy. There's a fine line between overly matchy just like there is a fine line for overly posed photos

PREPARATION Plan ahead! This is big. Don't wait until the day before or day of to figure out the outfits, make up, hair, etc. This will cause you and everyone to be under pressure and stressed out. That is the last thing you want when you go to take head shots or portraits.

Make sure all you have to do is get ready. Give yourself plenty of time.

Eat & hydrate - make sure you have a snack and drink before your session. This is especially true for the kiddos. It can go a long way in making the session go smoothly.
