WHAT TO EXPECT

Each family photographed will select a pose for the directory, and receive a FREE church directory.  

For your convenience, you will be able to view your portraits immediately following your session. There is NO OBLIGATION, however, you will have the opportunity to order portraits.  I will have several options to choose from including traditional printed portrait sheets, print enlargements, framed and canvas prints as well as Christmas cards!  Please bring your credit card, cash or checkbook. 

A copy of the print and product options and pricing is coming soon and will be added here when it is complete!

Plan on being at your session for about 20-30 minutes.  During your time, we will photograph, choose the directory image, and order the printed portraits that you love most!

If you are a generational family e.g. Grandparents, daughter, son-in-law, grandchildren, I will gladly take some larger, generational portraits in addition to your individual family portraits. If you would like some generational family portraits, please contact me so that I can help you choose the best number of time slots to sign up for.  You can call me at the studio during regular business hours (M-F 9 am -5 pm) at 270-200-4159 Or you can email me at:  [email protected] 


WHAT TO WEAR

The backdrop we are using for these portraits is in the image below: 

FMTaylorE-01 It photographs beautifully and provides a timeless look for your portraits.  In order to ensure that your portraits have the best look please follow the below guidelines when choosing clothing:

  • Solid darker colors will look best
  • Lighter colors can also work, but will have more contrast against the dark background
  • For each family member choose all darker shades of clothing, or all lighter shades of clothing.  Both can be mixed in with some mid-range tones
  • Coordinating shades are best.  It is not necessary to be "matchy-matchy" with your clothing choices, just be sure that all clothing colors coordinate for the best look
  • Layers are always a great choice 
  • For the most flattering look, choose a darker color and long sleeves or mid-length sleeves
  • Don't forget your favorite accessories - simple jewelry, a tie, vest, jacket, fedora hat, etc

I have created a pinterest board with clothing color options to help you decide what to wear!  Find the board here:  https://pin.it/5LnraV6
