Preparing for you Autumn Sessions: 7 tips

Autumn is one of the most popular times of year for a variety of sessions, for obvious reasons. I mean, how can you not enjoy those lovely pops of colours. It's an amazing time as you get to really play up your wardrobe and mix and match with some awesome accessories for that crisp weather. I want you to make the most out of your session and here are some great tips on how to do so.




1) Make use of accessories and clothing that play up the "fall" feeling. For example, leather boots, cable knit scarves and comfy cardigans look amazing on the whole family and can really bring a picture to life. Tip: neutrals do really well in the fall against all that foliage. 

2)Timing is everything. Start paying attention to that shift in weather as summer melts into fall. Once the leaves start changing, call up your photographer and book a session. I know that I like to plan fall sessions, so chances are I've got a session ready for you.Typically October is the perfect time for your session. 

3) Location is everything. If it's autumn, you better believe we're playing outside in the gorgeous weather. I have a lot of locations to choose from that have particularly pretty backdrops. As a professional working in the area for many years, I know all the great spots where the colours look unreal and offer variety. I'm also open to your suggestions. 



4) Plan for a mid-afternoon to early-evening session, when the light is just gorgeous. The days are shorter in the fall, so we need to plan accordingly to get that golden hour light.

5) Play in the environment. Chances are there are leaves on the ground or a few buds lingering around. I may have you throw leaves up into the air or something similar. It sounds cliche but it works for a reason. Remember, this shoot is all about capturing your family bond and having fun, so let loose and get into the season!  

6) Pack the necessities. It can get chilly in autumn, so you may want to bring some necessities on hand. I recommend a lip balm, moisturizer, warm packs for your hands, tissues, and, of course, warm apparel.

7) Wear comfortable shoes and accessories. Since we're going to be outside, we'll probably do lots of walking. If those boots look amazing, but kill

your feet, scratch them. If the scarf looks adorable on Timmy, but it's scratches his face and makes him unhappy, it's better left at all.

Frequently Asked Questions about Boudoir.

Boudoir. 
It's exciting
It's inciting
And it's confusing and intimating all at the same time! 

If you are thinking about a boudoir I'm sure you have some pretty big questions on the top of your head. That's fine. I mean it's not everyday you are standing half naked in front of a perfect stranger. 


So you have questions... I've got answers.








Q: Boudoir. Pornography. What’s the difference?
A: Well for starters Boudoir is suggestive, while porn is... well you know. And you don’t have to be complete nude or revel anything at all when it comes to boudoir photographs. One of the most important things about being sexy is being confident. If you feel that way wearing jeans, by all means, wear jeans! Or a button down men’s dress shirt. Sure why not? Classy, suggestive, and flirty.

Q: Can you Photoshop my images?
A: If you would like to have say, stretch marks, a scar, that unwanted, embarrassing tattoo from when you were 16 removed. Sure that is do-able. If you want…

A little Session with Picture Perfect Props

If you are a family in the Niagara Region and have small children, it is more then likely that you have heard of Picture Perfect Props by Mich. In fact, she is probably a household name for your family. Having been open for the past 8 years, I have worked with Mich a great many of times and have come to know her, not only as a business woman but as a friend as well.

Over the past few years, Mich and I have gotten together to a variety of different sessions together that have been offered to the public. One of our favorites is our outfit showcase session. We did this last year and had such a blast, we did it again this year. We draw a few different children varying in age to model some of the outfits, tutus, headbands and other products available in Mich's store in Welland. This year we have over 300 people enter the contest!! HOLY SMOKES!!

We always have fun during these sessions and so the families! Here are some of the adorable images we got during this years session.
