Holly Brooke Photography | Q and A


How long will the session take?
Anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on how things are going. With kids, you never know what is going to happen! Just be prepared. You might bring something fun to end it with so they know they have a reward at the end....like bubbles! 
When can I see my proofs?
Your proofs will be uploaded for you to see within 2-3 weeks. After that a CD will be sent to you within a month.  
Do you use props?
Not a lot. I do have a few things I use like old chairs, chalkboards, quilts and an old suitcase. I am simple! Less is more for me. If there is something in particular that you want in your picture, by all means bring it!
What is a high resolution disk?
It's a CD of all of your images at print quality. This way you decide what size and proof works best for you. I do have a lab I work with that uses Kodak Endura Lustre Paper which lasts much longer than the paper you would get from Walgreens and other labs like it. If you are interested, I would be more than happy to give you the pricing on it. 
What should we wear?
What could be harder than deciding what to wear for a photo session??? What your WHOLE FAMILY will wear for the session!  Wear colors that compliment each other.  Think about where the photos will be taken and what the season is. Try wearing layers to add dimension to your picture. Throw in a brightly colored accent.  A turquoise necklace would go great in a picture with green grass. Make the pictures pop with color! Check out this blog post for some examples.

How should we pose and act?

JUST HAVE FUN!!! I hate that some people dread having their pictures taken.This is supposed to be fun and capture your true self. Let it all shine! Smile, be happy, and love each other! The pictures will turn out great that way!
