Jessica, Andrew, and Daniel

Today I had the pleasure of taking photos for some of my favorite people in the world. Although I'm getting ready to head out of town, I had to take a look at them before I left and couldn't resist editing a couple for the blog. I hope you guys like them - I know most people will like the first one, but the second is actually my favorite. :)

What to Wear

I often get the question "What should we wear?" and my sister suggested I do a post showing some ideas. I like to tell people to coordinate but don't be too matchy - I personally am not a fan of the everyone in white shirts and khaki pants look. Change it up a little and show your personality!

This first look is one I came up with as an example for a family with two kids (one girl, one boy). I like the neutral base with a fun pop of color (the pink on the gray shirt and the pink sweater).

Here's another look, this time for two adults (maybe for the casual portion of an engagement session).

This third look is for a session for just two children (no adults).

The last option is if you want to be a little more adventurous and try mixing prints. Just make sure that everything is in the same color family (such as the ivory, grey, red, and black in this set).

Hopefully this post gives you a few ideas for your future photo sessions. One last suggestion (especially if you have little ones) is make sure they are comfortable in what they are wearing, and dress them in clothing you don't mind them running around in and maybe even getting a little dirty. I've had clients doing everything from sitting on some old tires, putting their feet in a fountain, as well as just sitting on the (still slightly wet) grass for a few shots - so don't wear something that you'd be horrified to sit on the ground in. :)

The M Family

On Sunday afternoon I took some photos for my friend Stacy and her husband Matt, along with their adorable puppy Mocha (she's Einstein's girlfriend by the way). Here are some of my favorites from the shoot!

The E Family

This morning I met the E family for some family pictures, as well as a few individual ones for their son Ronan who turned one this fall. I tried to keep the session short because the little guy wasn't feeling well, but I still think we got some really cute pictures. It was a pleasure meeting you guys, thanks for giving me the opportunity to take your photos! I hope you like your sneak peek...
