3 Tips to having a fun engagement session experience

Pick the spot

I recommend coming up with the look and vibe you want and then I’ll help you hunt down the perfect spot. Want a nature look? We’ll go to a state park! Want a beautiful spring garden vibe? Raleigh rose garden might be a good option. Want a clean modern look? NC Art Museum might be the one!

Find the right outfit

I always tell my clients to choose neutrals and larger prints/patterns because they photograph the best! While pops of color are doable (And I don’t have a problem if that’s what you want) sometimes they can reflect onto the skin and we may have to work around that.

Embracing the weird

Some poses or prompts may feel a little awkward at times! I try to start slow and simple and go from there. Often the weirder ideas will have the best results! But I always try to pose based on the vibe you want and if you aren’t feeling something we’ll just move on to the next idea! It’s all supposed to be fun after all.
