Plan on an hour for your professional photography session. Come prepared for your session and show the real you! We often photograph families and individuals with meaningful items: special keepsakes, sports equipment, musical instruments, etc. Many families wear coordinating colors for a unified look. We suggest solid colored shirts with long sleeves.
