What to wear?

This is a big question for most people. First of all, and most importantly, I want you to be comfortable.

Secondly, I find it is better if you keep things simple; no plaids, stripes, sparkles, or graphic tees. Keep the bottoms simple ( jeans, khakis, black) then the tops in solid colors. 

For groups, I find it is better if you don't go for a "matchy-matchy" look. Instead, keeps the bottoms similar and the tops in the same tonal family. For example, tops in cool tones of blues, greens, and turquoise, or warm tones of yellows, pinks, oranges. 

A mix of neutrals (off white, grays, black) with either jeans or khakis always looks great.

I am also flexible if you want to try a couple of different outfits during the shoot. Some families like to have fun and wear their favorite sports teams jerseys/ tees! 

How about little ones?

I LOVE working with small children ( it's the Aunt Diane in me). My goal is to put them at ease and to have fun with them. You can help me by making sure they have their regular naps and mealtimes, and please bring simple (non-messy) snacks and water for them to have during the session.

I have a number of great locations in the Traverse City area to choose from, depending on the look you are going for. You can choose beachy, wooded and rustic, urban cool, or even at your own home.This is usually discussed in your initial consultation, but I can send you photo examples of different locations, if needed.
