What to Expect
Splashdrop Photography always aims to create photographs that have a very bright, clean, and airy feel. My most important style goal though is to create photographs that look natural. As a result, my sessions are very low-key!
Children will rarely give a true smile when posed and told to smile; however, if they are playing and having a good time, true smiles are hard to keep away! Keeping this in mind, sessions with children will be set up to make them comfortable. Be prepared to play, giggle, pick flowers, or just hang out. I'm happy to meet you at your home or a local park where your kids will be most comfortable to get pictures of them at their most natural!
For sessions with teens or adults, we may not be "playing," but we WILL be having a good time! For senior sessions, I encourage you to bring a friend or two along with you! It's a lot easier to have fun with some of your friends around.
What to wear
It's hard to tell clients exactly what to wear. If you're doing a family shoot, wearing colors that complement each other works well, as does wearing solids instead of prints. If you're doing a senior session, just bring several outfits, and you can change whenever you want.
The most important thing when considering your wardrobe is to wear something you're comfortable in. If you're constantly feeling the need to tug or pull at your clothes, you can't concentrate on having a good time and getting great pictures!
Since Splashdrop Photography focuses on doing on-location natural-light photography, the best time to do your photo shoot is in early morning or late afternoon/early evening. However, when we schedule your session keep in mind what time will work best for your family and children. Also, when doing a session with children, it helps if you can bring some of their favorite snacks, toys, books, or whatever else will help to put them at ease.
You can expect your edited photographs to be available for viewing within 3 weeks of the session date. All photos will be uploaded into an online viewing gallery, from which they can be downloaded directly to your computer. If desired, you can purchase a CD or flashdrive with all the images from the session for $25, and prints can be purchased a la carte from the viewing gallery as well.
