Style & Preparation Tips for your Session!
For all portrait sessions with Loni Newby Photography clients are more than welcome to bring any items that are special to them to use as props. When shooting on location, it is important to work with each client to find the perfect place to truly capture the style that is desired. When photographers say: "On location" often times that means in one or two different places that they have scoped out. I try to accommodate by finding an appropriate setting based on the type of session as well as the desired outcome. There is a huge difference in Urban, Rustic, Contemporary, Outdoorsy and a variety of other options. Trust me ladies and gents, I've only lived here a few weeks and know full well there are many other places than just White Sands or Cloudcroft! (Though both are gorgeous and truly do make lovely backdrops.)
As far as accessories go, I say: Bring 'em all! I'd rather sort through an entire wardrobe to find the perfect piece to make a stylish image than have too few items to find that perfect pop!
Ladies, be bold. Bright colors, fun dresses. Those outftits that you have picked out for a special occasion that just hasn't come up yet--it's time!
Matching is a-ok in my book, but by all means is not a necessity for family photos. I love when clients wear clothes that are comfortable and stylish, but also give a peek into each individuals character. It may be a necklace, a pair of boots, a tie, a baseball cap or cowboy hat that makes the image your own.
I am happy to share ideas, wardrobe boards via pinterest and past examples to help you get the perfect images!
As always, if you have any questions just holler!! :) -Loni
