So, you might be curious about what a session looks like, how long it will take, and what to prepare for.
I am pretty flexible when it comes to sessions, I love love love outdoor sessions, they offer the most flattering NATURAL light, and an outdoor locations makes it easy to really get creative, especially for couple's and family photos. The Vilseck area has tons of nice little places that make great locations, but honestly, you can do photos pretty much anywhere. When you book a session, we will talk locations. I have a few places I really like, but I am also open to your ideas! I do have a studio space for the worst of days that don't allow for lengthy outdoor sessions, and I like to use that especially for babies.
Outdoor sessions usually take place early in the morning just as the sun rises, or late in the afternoon/evening, when the light is the best. On overcast days, the time of day doesn't matter too much, but on very sunny days, I kind of like to stick to the early morning/late afternoon timeframes. It is possible to shoot in noon light, though! For studio sessions, the time doesn't matter, since I don't work with natural light but with studio strobes.
What's your photographer like?
I am not an extroverted person at all, but somehow I become a outgoing person when I take photos. I try to make this as fun as possible, after all, I want you to be comfortable and enjoy this experience. I also hope to get some genuine smiles. If I overdo the cheering-on, please let me know ;), but I have learned, that while parents think that I am nuts, kids do pretty well with a silly photographer ;). Whatever ideas you have, bring them on; I prepare for every single session, I'm trying to change things up a little bit for every client, but I really honestly love when clients have some ideas of their own that we can incorporate in our session. If you are thinking about changing outfits, please stop thinking and just bring the outfits!
How long does a session take?
Session lenght depends mainly on the subject.
I like to take my time for newborns, I would say at least 2 hours. They will get hungry, they need to be changed, they need to be cuddled, and this all takes time. When I do a newborn session, I don't book another session for that day, just so we can make sure to have enough time and to work without any kind of stress. I love babies, they usually are happy and jolly and we can take as much as an hour (or even longer, depending on what baby thinks of this); you can change their outfits as many times as they let you.
For individuals or couples I would say we'll need somewhere around 30 to 45 minutes. Family sessions can be either a little longer than that if you have older kids that will be patient enough to do family photos as well as some individual photos, or maybe shorter if you have young kids/toddlers that have anything on their agenda but to sit still for a second for a photo. With younger kids, stay patient; they are in charge and we will most likely have to work around them in order to get some nice photos.
