LOCATION SUGGESTIONS AND TIPS


 

I love photographing families in settings that are meaningful to them. With that in mind consider the places you hang out the most. Don’t forget your home as an option too. Chances are it’s not only where you spend the most time, but it’s also where your kids are most likely to be relaxed and themselves. Magazine cover worthy homes are not required! I have lots of locations around that I use, but I’m constantly on the lookout for new ones! If you are unsure where you would like to have you session, I am more than happy to help you pick! You might also look at my portfolio, and see what resonates most with you. Love an industrial or urban feel? Let’s shoot in the city! More of a nature lover? Let’s find the perfect field or forest for your shoot! Please keep in mind when choosing a location that all permit fees are the client's responsibility and will be added to your final invoice. All permit fees below are correct as of 12/5/17.
