1. MAKE A DAY OUT OF IT
Raw + real. That’s what I’m all about. I want to capture you as you are－together. The more relaxed you are the better. So make a day out of it. Go out for a bite to eat, grab some beers, or cuddle your puppos on the couch with a movie before. This is about having fun!
2. DRESS LIKE YOURSELVES
I will never say no to a maxi dress. But I will also never say no to a biker jacket and jeans. The best way to get photos that feel like you is to be wearing something that is you. Something you feel comfortable + sexy in. Plus I make you guys move around. Like a lot.
3. PICK A PLACE THAT YOU BOTH LOVE
This should be something you both love to do or a place you just like to exist in. Really think about what you love to do as a couple. Spend your weekends hiking? Perfect. I’ll tag along. Love to stay in and have a Harry Potter movie-marathon? I’m there for it. Let’s stay in and order pizza and I’ll capture you two in your true form.
4. LEAVE THAT POSED SH*T AT THE DOOR
I want you to let go of the “should I put my hand here or here” stuff. Seriously－no one gives a damn if your hand is two or four inches above her knee (I mean maybe someone does, I don’t know your mom). It’s whatever feels natural to you.
5. BE SPONTANEOUS
You gotta be prepared for the unexpected. Listen, I don’t tell Mother Nature what to do and she certainly doesn’t give a crap about what I think. I’m from the Midwest ok we eat tornados for breakfast.
But as they say in the biz, “The show must go on!”
6. DON’T BE AFRAID TO OPEN UP
This is my job. I want you to be vulnerable. Show me how you feel about each other. Those quiet moments you have when you’re alone. Those grab-her-face & scrunch your nose moments when no one’s looking.
