Portrait Session Information

Portrait sessions are specifically tailored to the individual and no two are ever the same. A portrait sitting can be scheduled in an outdoor setting, on location in the client’s own home, or in a studio environment. The session can be fast moving and spontaneous, relaxed and contemplative, or anywhere in between.

The portrait session itself typically lasts one to two hours, although this varies and to a large degree depends on the client. We can talk and relax during the shoot and work at a languid pace or get right down to business and work faster. The client is welcome to bring along a friend if doing so makes them feel more comfortable. In any case, we’ll keep shooting until everyone is satisfied with what we have.

I typically suggest that the client wear solid colored clothing for the shoot, although there are no hard and fast rules. Whatever suits the individual is really what’s best. Changing clothes during the shoot is encouraged as different clothes have a way of bringing out different facets of an individual’s personality.

Make-up and hair styling I leave up to the client. I can certainly offer guidelines as to what tends to work best but hair and make-up are a personal choice. If it makes sense, the client can have someone else help with this side of things if they’re not comfortable doing so themselves. Whatever works is always good.
