pre-session consultation | pittsburgh motherhood photography

Today I wanted to share a little bit about what goes on before your session- and it happens to be one of my favorite parts!  After you reserve your session, we will set up a time for your pre-session consult.  This is where the magic begins.  We’ll talk about your family, what makes them so special and what you are envisioning for  your session.  We’ll talk about clothing choices and locations as well as how you would like to see your photos after all is said and done- as an art piece on the wall or as a beautiful addition to your coffee table as an album.

I’ll put together a style board for you with options from my client wardrobe as well as options for your family.  It makes coordinating & shopping for everyone almost effortless.  No wasted time scrolling online for hours & hours trying to figure out what to wear and then having a million returns to make (as well as saving you some money!).  As a mom of 4, I always thought this was the hardest part of having family photographs- the dreaded what to wear question and how do I find it.  You’re busy with life, so I’ve made it simple & easy for you- borrow from the client wardrobe & let my hair & makeup artist pamper you.  Done and done!

You’ll also receive my planning guide that has some of things we talked about as well as helpful tips to prepare for your session.  It also shows you the beautiful heirloom artwork that is available for purchase after your session, during your ordering appointment.

We’ll touch base again prior to your session just to make sure all is good to go.  I really love being able to take the stress out of preparing for your session so that the experience is that much more enjoyable!
