  • What to Wear?

  • What Do I Bring?

  • Makeup & Your Face!

  • Will you be giving guidance?

  • Where will we go?


This question will change for every shoot I do, inspiration is constantly changing as it does and the way I see things and colors will change as well! But, what to wear will all depend on you and who you are. I strongly recommend picking the outfits yourself and choosing your personal favorite colors to fit your soul. If you’d like to send me a picture of your 2 favorite outfits, I can tell you what I think of them. For the most part, I trust your judgement!

  • All items should fit perfectly, I want you to feel comfortable.

  • Try your clothing on before you come to the shoot.

  • Bring multiple articles of clothing, lots of options

  • If you see a shoot I’ve done that you like and would like to pull inspiration from, let me know and we can work with that!

  • Don’t forget JEWELRY, this adds so much more to images.

  • Hats are also a good thing, for afterwards, so you don’t mess up the hairs

Color pallets! I love using these to get ideas. If you head to https://coolors.co/ they have lots of options to choose from.

If you want to bring any props, I highly recommend a nice blanket, umbrella (If it rains), Whatever you think would look good. We don’t need to use any of them, but you never know what will look gooooood!



I can’t stress enough about getting your makeup professionally done, it make a world of difference and not to mention a lot easier on me, less editing, ha. So If you need a good makeup artist I know some great artists in Victoria who I can set you up with.



I am very confident in my photo game and will be giving guidance, when necessary. How it usually works is, we will just hang out and talk, get comfortable with the camera in my hand and then when I start to see something, I will take pictures, slowly. There is nothing ever rushed in the beginning, it’s best to just relax into the shoot and let whatever happens, happen. Whenever I see something I want changed, I will let you know and if I don’t, then I like what I’m seeing! I get asked “what do I do with my hands” just about every photoshoot, but not to worry! I have lots of places for you to put your hands, ha. Just remember to do your own thing, whatever feels most comfortable to you! That’s what’s important.



There are endless locations all over the place, so this is never an issue. If you have any suggestions, I am all ears, I love new locations. But, we can chat about what you are looking for and go from there! Places that could look excellent:

  • Lakes

  • Beach/Ocean

  • Mountain peaks

  • Anywhere to build a fire (I love building fires, if you want one)

  • Glaciers

  • Boat rides to little islands

  • Rainforest (Oldgrowth forest)

These are just some suggestions on where we could go for amazing images, remember we can only hit up so many locations though, so we must choose wisely.
