What should we wear?

I love to see the personality of the kids or family come out in the photos so wearing whatever your style is really the best. You want your pictures to reflect as much YOU as possible.

For thematic photo sessions for girls (angel, princess and the like) I can offer outfits. You need to specify the size of clothes and the age of the girl in order to I could check if I have an outfit for her.


Do you take pictures indoors?
Yes, I do, but most of my sessions take place outdoors in natural light…early morning or dusk is the ideal time.
Newborns and babies/toddlers sessions can be done at my place.
