Tips:

Please bring change of clothing. Avoid black, green, heavy patterns and stripes. Bring lots of accessories and make-up kit to re-apply.

​If you are bringing small children, let them have a nap before hand and bring their “reward” – toys, snacks, drinks etc. They will be tired and bored after a while. *Please note that images with your children in them might be used on my website and on social media sites.

For dogs:

Don’t exercise your dog too much right before the shoot. We want the tongue to stay nice and short.
Bring lots of yummy treats and his/her favorite toy. Toys that make noises are the best.
Practice basic behaviors, such as sit/down/wait/hold/watch, in unfamiliar settings.
If your dog(s) is shy or nervous with strangers and at strange places, please let me know ahead of time.
