Collection ONE is a great fit for families...
that extra half hour is a great warmup for those family members that are a bit camera shy. The extra time also allows for different groupings to make a nice wall gallery or mini album. Collection One is for families up to 5, every extra person afterwards is another $50 each.
If you're wondering what to wear, be sure to think of not only the location of the shoot but also where the images will be displayed. If you are thinking of displaying some images framed in a wall gallery, what are the main colors of that room? Please choose comfortable clothing that fits well and works well in the location of your choice. High heels in muddy fields or short sleeves when it's cold out won't photograph very well. If you feel uncomfortable it will probably show in the images.
My style is to showcase our beautiful surroundings and I will typically include a lot of environment in several photos. My aim is to capture the connection between family members so although I will try to get that shot of everyone looking and smiling at the camera for the holiday card, it is not the case for the majority of images. I try to think of what I would like to see years from now in an image and shoot that...connection, emotion, and personality.
