I shoot my sessions outdoors so we’re always ‘weather dependent’. This is Washington and sometimes it rains or it gets really windy! Be prepared to reschedule if necessary.
Sessions can last somewhere between 60-90 minutes depending on number of outfits, locations and session chosen.
SENIORS: bring 2-5 outfits. Bring accessories (hats, scarves, and jewelry), jackets, sweaters, changes of shoes (boots, sandals, heels, athletic shoes). Whatever is your style! When you like what you’re wearing you tend to photograph better.
BE PREPARED: Eat beforehand, stay hydrated. Bring a bottle of water and/or light snack if you tend to have low blood sugar. Hairspray! Control those wispy hairs even if you don't usually use hairspray. Bring face powder or blotting wipes to control shine and lip balm/gloss/lip stick for beautiful lips.
There are a lot of great locations in the area. I travel within a 10 mile radius of Downtown Bellevue. Outside of 10 miles I may charge a travel fee.
Juanita Bay Nature Preserve (Kirkland)
Marymoor Park (Redmond)
Heritage Park (Kirkland)
Carillon Point (Kirkland)
University of Washington (Seattle)
Magnuson Park (Seattle)
Luther Burbank Park (Mercer Island)
Bellevue Library Park
Robinswood Park (Bellevue)
Bellevue Botanical Gardens (Bellevue, requires permit)
Depending on the time of year, day of the week, and time of day, some of these locations are more crowded than others. Some may require photography permits and some do not allow dogs during peak summer months. If you have ideas for a location, please let me know!
