what to wear

With almost every single photo session I am asked the one big question that is on everyone's mind:

*This is my family and what we wore for our photo session*

This question terrifies people, causes them to lose sleep, and even causes some to avoid taking pictures all together! (the last one is just unacceptable folks....) Well, have no fear. I am here to help you calm down.
You can do this.
I am here to help!  :)
I had my family photographed by the amazing Megan Squires Photography, so I know EXACTLY what you are going through. I actually started having dreams about what we should wear!! I thought I would go crazy. I had to remind myself what I always tell my clients.
I follow these 3 simple rules:
#1 - Mom picks her clothes FIRST! "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" This is SO true when it comes to pictures. Moms, pick out your outfit and then match everyone else to YOU! I am serious! You will be glad you did!
#2 - Pick 3 or 4 colors for your clothing. For our photos I chose  orange, light blue and grey. We are not ALL wearing ALL of the colors, but our outfits are made up of these colors. This way you coordinate, but are not too "matchy matchy".
#3 - Be comfortable! If you don't normally wear high heels, then DON'T! We didn't even wear shoes for our family pictures because that was US! You want your family to shine, so be YOURSELF!!
The most important thing?   HAVE FUN!
Here are some of the amazing photographs from our session. How do you think I did planning our outfits?

Yep! It is already that time of year! Can you even believe it? I can't, but it is true! 
So hurry up and book your Christmas Mini Session
These are MINI sessions, so they are only 30 minutes long. 
**the perfect amount of time to do some pictures before the kids totally loose it. 

Best part?! You don't even have to worry about finding a fantastic Christmas card. You get a custom designed Christmas Card with your session!! Check out last years Christmas blog post to see some of the fabulous cards I designed for those clients!

To reserve your time email me your top 3 time slots (they are in 30 minute increments, so you would email me 3 times such as 10am, 7:30 or 8). 

I am looking forward to seeing you all there!!
