In this image of Chef James, you see him in the garden on his knees picking beets. This speaks to the Chefs attitude toward cooking of going from the farm to the plate. Use this as an example when photographing your family and tell a story with your photographs.
This means that for rooms that have soft colors and wooden tones, colors like white, khaki, denim and soft pastels work well. Clothes with logos, stripes, checks, or loud patterns do not. Black should be avoided.
Our goal is to help families determine the number of different poses or breakdowns desired so we have time to create everything. Knowing what is desired also allows us the opportunity to inform clients what the costs are so any issues or inconsistencies can be taken care of.
So, a fair amount of advance planning is required. While this does take time, it enables families to make important decisions before they get here so in the end they get what they really want.
