Dallas Family Photographer | What To Wear - Volume 3

Im back with another volume of “what to wear”! Since it is often the first question that comes up after a client reserves their session, I love to address it well ahead of time! There are three things that I am very particular about - where I photograph, what time of day your session takes place, and what you wear for your portraits - as these three pieces play such a crucial role in the overall picture (pun intended)! Whether you choose to select pieces from my client wardrobe, or shop for your own, I strongly suggest selecting pieces that are beautiful, timeless and offers a soft, neutral, color palette . This allows your treasured portraits to withstand the test of time and grow with your home decor through each season! Below is a sampling of pieces that I might recommend:

Flower Mound Family Photographers | Client Wardrobe + What To Wear - Volume 2

A question I get asked all of the time is “what should we wear to our session?” and what you choose to wear for your family portraits is so important. I am very particular about where I photograph sessions, what time of day your session takes place and what you wear for your portraits as it really does make such a huge difference! This past year I started offering a client wardrobe for mothers and children for all of my clients and everyone has been loving it! There are few things more stressful than having to plan what each person in your family is going to wear, finding something for yourself (come on mamas, you KNOW this is not an easy task!), while keeping the color palette cohesive while not coming off as too matchy. And then there is the daunting task of having to return what you decided not to use - and if your kid are anything like mine, running errands is not at the top of their priority list, haha :) This summer I made it a goal to get all of my client wardrobe photographed to make it easy for both me and my clients to reference when trying to figure out what to wear. With dozens of dresses in my collection, there is sure to be something that you love and almost every dress is adjustable so we can add pins or clips to achieve the perfect fit!

Flower Mound Fall Family Sessions

I hope you all are enjoying your summer! While we were a little spoiled with the mild temps earlier in the season, I think its safe to say that SUMMER is officially here! With that being said, I know it's not easy to start thinking about fall, but school starts in just 4 1/2 weeks!

My fall schedule always fills up fast, so I wanted to send out a little reminder for those of you thinking about fall family sessions! For my current clients that have had a session in the last 12 months, I am giving you early access to reserve your date on the calendar - beginning today, Thursday, July 11 through the end of day Monday, July 15, I will only reserve sessions for you! I will open up the calendar to the public on Tuesday, July 16! Simply fill out the form HERE for additional information and to check availability.

For those of you that reserve your date before August 1 (session does not need to take place before that date), I will provide 25 complimentary holiday cards! And family sessions that take place between now September 15 will receive a $200 portrait credit that can be used towards your order!

Dallas Family Photographer Fall Sessions

WHEN SHOULD I RESERVE MY SESSION DATE?
Now! Fall is always my busiest season and I take on a limited number of sessions each month (and a limited number of weekend sessions to allow me quality time with my family!) so that I can provide the high level of customer service that I strive for. Ideally, I like to schedule at least 1-2 months in advance to allow an adequate amount of time to thoroughly plan your session and assist you with wardrobe choices and source new items when needed! Also keep in mind when scheduling when you would like to have your finished portraits in hand - I schedule the reveal and ordering session with printed proofs approximately 2 weeks after your session date and turn around for holiday cards, prints and albums can take anywhere from 2-8 weeks (handmade albums taking the longest to come in!).

Dallas Family Photographer Client Wardrobe Clothing

CLIENT WARDROBE
I offer a full range of clothing for mamas and littles that is available for all client sessions! I provide wardrobe for you and the kiddos and provide styling assistance for dads, saving you the hassle of trying to coordinate outfits, shop with kids in-tow, or making trips for the inevitable returns. I know first hand how difficult it can be for a mama to get ready, so I am happy to help to coordinate a hair and makeup artist for your session date as well.
